For a 2003 Citroen C3 either of the 2 lexia clones you suggested will do the job.

This one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PP2000-Lexia-3-Diagnostic-Interface-Scan-Tool-Diagbox-For-Peugeot-Citroen-V7-V48-

and this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Full-Chip-lexia-3-lexia3-V48-Citroen-Peugeot-Diagnostic-Scanner-Diagbox-V7-65-UK-

will both connect to and communicate with the early C3 models and I couldn't see from the listing how one would be any different than the other for your year of C3 :)

Just to stress the value of having LEXIA, had the engine light on and poor running on Saturday morning. Hooked up LEXIA and cleared a load of old historic codes which left just one re-occuring fault, No 3 Injector. Collected a replacement part this morning from an ebay seller who is conveniently only 20 minutes away and sorted.

Without LEXIA I would have been struggling to get a diagnosis and probably booking a garage appointment for later in the week. Never mind all the other stuff I've done with it in the past, today's repair has more than covered the cost of purchasing the unit.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:
