What's the best tool for Steer Angle Reset in 2012 GTI?

So what's the best tool for that? Foxwell NT510, Carista, PowerLead Cadt PL-ES680, or is there an "affordable" $200 or less Ross-Tech VCDS tool? Or something else?

Many thanks in advance

Any shop with hunter alignment equipment will do the steering angle reset as part of an alignment but you could ask if they'll do it on its own for less money? I've done this myself but using VCDS, not sure if others allow you to do it! Pretty sure you can't do things like that with carista.

My OBD Eleven ($60) does have a Steering Angle section but I haven't had cause to investigate further but I know I can do the Throttle Body Reset using the OBD Eleven.

Just by Ross-Tech, you can find them used for around $200.
