    Yes and no. It will do bits and pieces but there really is no substitute for the real deal. Ross-Techs VCDS is that good that apparently some dealerships are now using it. To avoid disappointment, drop a PM to Nigel, username NHN on here. He is a supplier of VCDS and at a great deal cheaper than what you would otherwise pay. Plus with a fully registered VCDS interface, you get lifetime updates and technical help from Ross-Tech in the States, and they are really really helpful. Can't fault their customer service.

    Also, depending on what car you have, VCDS lite may not work. Best to check out Ross-Tech's website for a definitive answer (or ask NHN as suggested).

    VCDS-Lite should work with the B6 A4. But, the data behind VCDS-Lite is for up to model year 2004 when it was released. So ....

    B7 A4 requires a HEX+CAN interface and full VCDS.
