        Only Ross-Tech cables work with the full version of VAG-COM. All of the cheap cables you find will only work with old versions that are out of date or the shareware version.

        Either get a HEX-COM or USB or a KEY-COM or USB, you don't need CAN since your car doesn't support it. Only VWs after 2002 use CAN.

            Well, although you are right, for an extra 120$ he will get ALOT more functionality, as well as the ability to scan other friends VW/Audis for them.

            Either would work for his needs but he might become unhappy with the generic software at some point. Just looking out for a fellow dubber.

              Anky,

              No arguments there, I agree if you have the extra bucks you will get a lot more functionality for the VW specific pid's via a ross-tech scantool

              Thanks

                The Ross-Tech VAGCOM is the defacto VW monitoring tool. I highly recommend it. The company has good people too so if you run into trouble they are more than willing to help.
