    It is an OBD compatible port but you can't do anything but read information with a hand held device.

    VCDS required ( with laptop ) to do anything at all as the car has the new canbus diagnostics.

    Who knows? - it's a gamble you have to take if you buy cheap.

    Might work for a bit and then pack up - you really can't tell.

    You get what you pay for in this world mate so it's entirely up to you
