Also what cable will i need? there seems to be loads on ebay but i'm not sure which one i need.

I would most certainly go for a hex-usb+can cable, and by this getting the support you might need from ross-tech, you get a much better working interface that will also fit your newer vag's which use a can bus protocol.
Significant amount of money, but definitely worth every penny imo.
Just my two cents.
