I'm thinking about upgrading my radio to RNS-e.
It's become apparent that I'm going to need a VCDS, I've been told to buy an official one its around £220.
I have also found "Lite" versions, which are much cheaper but I have been told they wont do that I want them.
However, I've found this on eBay and I want a more experienced opinion.

By the look of it, it will do what I want it for. To be honest it looks like it does just about everything. Which is puzzling, what makes this £170 cheaper?
The only guess I can make is from the part that says "These cables only work with the software provided so do not attempt to upgrade this as your cable will not work anymore." So all i can only assume is that its a fake copy, and if it is therefore updated then the software will detect a fake version and it will overwrite not allow it to continue.
Apart from that will it do enough?
The thing is for me, I'm not a mechanic, I don't do anything with cars that aren't my own and no one else in the family owns a Audi, Seat or Skoda. So the chances of me actually using it again are very slim, So I don't want to pay £220 just to code a radio and then have it chucked in my garage and not used again. If this will do the job then that's good enough for me.
But that's why I'm here, I know there are much more experienced people on here than me, Is this a bit too good to be true? or will it be ok for one or two jobs?
