Well if we all had Flukes then that would be nice but costing several hundred pounds a throw there not necessary for the average Mini owner.
Anything which is Digital and has a DC range of 20v and does Resistance will do, and you can pick one up for les than £25-£30, whilst not a professional quality meter will be accurate enough to diagnoise day to day faults on your Mini.
Machine Mart have the Clark at £23.99 which is about the botom end of where a DIY Meter Starts
I would use. http://www.machinema...=SRC-multimeter
Obviously there are cheaper but I have tested some against my calibrated Fluke, and they are as much as 0.5v out and anologue meters are really not much good other than to say approximate voltage is present.
