    ODB Bluetooth readers

    I know this is not technically a VCDS matter, but was wondering if this bluetooth ODB reader would be suitable to plug into MY 2009 A3, so can read data like boost pressure using an Android phone and 'Torque' App.

    I was looking at that earlier. Not as a substitute to VCDS, but seemed cheap and useful for other brands.

    Been looking for something than can do more than just Engine though, ie airbag, abs codes etc.

    Ok, but what exactly are you trying to achieve here, just to see the torque/boost readings, do you have an issue with your car or just for the novelty factor?
