    TBH, its the best money I have spent on my car. If you know a mate that has it then just buy him beer... if not, buy VAGCOM... you won't regret it, especially considering the spec of your car...

    Dont bother getting a cheap imitation. IT cost me nearly 300 for my lead but its saved me over that amount.

    Can the cheap cables damage the car's ECU/electronics/programming?

    I've not heard of them causing damage but they do tend to loose connection and generally not work 100% like the real deal.

    You gets what you pays for, so don't expect the ebay cable to be as reliable or as compatible as the original cable.
