    Ask member NHN. I think he is the cheapest seller of VCDS in the world. Maybe even the universe.

    I think its around the £250 mark.

    As Ads said, have a word with NHN. He was the best price I got & the service was spot on, best money I've spent on a car/tools if I'm perfectly honest!

    Speak to NHN. Bought mine from him a few months back and cant fault his service. Keeps you informed of exactly whats happening and where the cable is etc.

    Good aftercare service if needed also.

    NHN supplies a Hex Can USB cable afaik. So covers everything bar the old stuff which needs a 2+2 adaptor.
    Unless i have it mixed up.
