    Please don't flame me as VCDS is brand new to me and I'm learning - about to pay rosstech £260 and someone sends me this and says its identical and the same software?

    VAG Diagnostics Ltd - VCDS Vag-Com 908, 912, & 10.6 Cables - Sales

    Apparently cables identical and all functions are the same? If so how can they afford to discount it at £180 cheaper!?

    its a clone - not legit

    vcds is updated constantly - the current verison is 11.11 so this is already out of date and the clones cant be updated to use the latest software versions

    Yeap that company is acting completely illegally & RT are onto them, the cables arent warranted or supported by RT at all, cant be updated, cant use latest software releases, dont waste your time or money.

    Its the same company ...

    i emailed them before posting on here and they were negligent to give away info. Says there a ltd company but there not registered with companies house and have no ltd number .. so buyer beware .. seems dodgy to me .. its pirated software ..

    don't know about you but my car which is worth a lot of £££ i do not want to plug in some pirated software and end up blowing my electrical circuits

    erm actually no i didnt mate because i didnt do my research like i said. It doesnt mention anything about updates at all on the site and i didnt look at the ross tech distibutor list until now so i thought they were just repaired ones or something. Accusing people isnt something you should do when you obviously dont know anything about it.

    Ok, I have a question, how did you find out about that site, did someone on here PM the link to you by any chance?

    For the record, I have nothing against you personally, its just a discussion on a given subject of fake items.

    Yeah i found it on the mk5 gti uk forums actually with the person stating he bought the vcds cable registered, he didnt mention the updates, in fact ill try looking for the thread, that is how. I just dont like the way u made a joke and accused someone you know nothing about.
