    find someone near you who has one and offer them some beer tokens to let you use their cable.

    The 8P A3 needs a CAN bus diagnostics cable - either a micro-CAN or a HEX-COM+CAN or HEX-USB+CAN, so most of the cheap cables are no good to you.

    Hence the £50k on the RS4 that does the job and not the £500 on the old banger that keeps breaking down!
