    OBDII ?

    I found a socket in the rear ash tray. Is this OBDII or some other protocol? My car is a 1999 A4 B5 1.8 non turbo.

    its OBD with a vag specific protocol.

    You need a VAG specific diagnostic tool like VCDS

    Are the readers readily available like the ELM devices on fleabay or is it just better to go to a garage? I dont have anything wrong at the moment, but just like to be prepared.

    the bluetooth ELM units will work but mainly used for basic data logging.
    Its best to get a VCDS cable.

    yeh, cheap ebay vcds cable is a good starting point, lets you do basic stuff and lets you get a handle on the software etc.
