    You're in luck... I've Hex-USB+CAN and I'm up at my folks until tomorrow night/wednesday lunchtime (near the RPH).

    We've only one small problem though, my laptop is almost flat and I've left the charger(s) 260 miles in a roughly south-westerly direction. If you've got a laptop, or we can be fast as hell, we're all good...

    PM on the way...

    Most of the leads on eBay are counterfeit, and are ropey to say the least. They'll only work with either a crappy old version of the software, or a hacked-to-death version included. Updates/future versions won't work at all.

    As regards a genuine interface/software licence, you'd be alright with a KII USB (K-Line diagnostic vehicles only), but to be honest it's not all that much more expensive to get a HEX-USB+CAN, and at least you can be confident that lead will be compatible with (CAN-bus diagnostic) cars you might buy in the future, or mates' etc...

    Full details of the packages available here: http://www.ross-tech.com/Merchant2/m...ry_Code=VAGCOM

    There are official UK distributers who can supply once you're ready to buy...

    Regards,
