    yep sounds like you have a vag com cable and software but unless you have a code you might not be able to use it but you might be lucky

    the Unliscensed version allows some pretty cool stuff but good at basic detection and switching off some of the warning lights. its not difficult to use but setting it up on a laptop can be a bit daunting as most of the usb devices are really usb to serial converters. and you have to identify the IO port in the software else it doesnot read.

    Still worth getting working for a freeby

    Yep it works what you cant do is some of the logging and advanced stuff like reprogramming individual parameters.

    You can report most faults and reset warning lights and you can set your ECU so the car thinks is an 2.4 a4 instead of an a6. I wouldn't bother though I reset mine back as all the torque disapeared and hills became a real pain.

    Did not seem much better just revved easier

    check out ross techs website this is invaluable on what it can do in unliscensed mode.

    have fun
