    Change the port latency settings on the PC. Go below 16 (10 worked for me) this is on the hardware tabs not in VCDS.

    Funny how Ross Tech don't mind the 3rd party cable users...guess they know most of us will eventually front up the cash.

    Now I have no intention of trying to change codes using VCDS but someone has suggested I check if there are any errors. On a 2005 A3, therefore with CANBUS - I see the OBD2 409.11 cables available on Ebay no problem - are they compatible with my car ? (I see on Amazon talk of them not being compatible with CANBUS). If thats not the right one - any pointers to the correct one. I certainly cannot afford to go anywhere near the official tool. The alternative is if anyone lives near Luton and can read for me ?
