mfizzle, not asking this as an insult of any sort. But is the 18 the first thing that comes up (table reference)?
Any other codes come up?

Yes, 18 is the table code. You won't get an 18, UNLESS there are other codes. If your car is "clean," it will just return you to your choices (FC, I believe).

mfizzle, could have been worse. $100 doesnt seem bad...
Guy I used to work with got a check engine light on his truck, rented a scanner, read a plug issue, changed plugs, check engine light was still there, he said screw it and took it to dealer. The read the code, changed the plugs, charged some godawful amount of $...
As its at the dealer he realized he forgot to clear the code!
He was so mad at himself. hehe

But yes, the 18 is the table reference. If you hooked it up to an M3 you would get a 1b as your first code, thats the table for the M3, for example..
