    Vagcom ?????

    ok I'm thinking of getting one to save some ŁŁŁ.

    The thing is I've just been on ebay and "OH MY GOD" how many are on there with prices ranging from Ł2.99 to Ł69.99 so I'm a bit lost now. Can anyone recommend one for me ?

    thanks

    Won't get proper VAGCOM for much change out of Ł200 mate. You can use the shareware version on a Ł6.99 ebay serial lead but thats about yer lot

    If you plan on keeping the car and doing your own servicing/mods etc its well worth the investment though.

    Get a proper one mate you won't regret it. Not only can you do diagnostics when something goes wrong, you can also set some cool things in the coding.

    Speak to NHN, a member on this forum as he sells the proper cables.

    If you ever sell the car and don't get another vag car to use it on the re sell of the cables is good too.

    i here everyone saying about vag com on laptop and serial lead, well the guy who checked my car wasnt on a laptop, it was a unit of its own a bit like the snap on diagnostic unit,
    has anyone else seen these, or know the price of them.
