    It mentions absolutely nothing about compatability, and I refuse to believe that this magic box will work in every car.

    It doesn’t work with my car because my car uses CAN-BUS to deliver the control signals. I have figured out a way to make it work but it requires at $350 Vag-com cable and custom software to make it work.
