    Finally looking to get my own diagnostic ( VAG-COM ) or maybe a VAG scanning tool as I'm not really interested in being able to code stuff just fault finding,but saying that I want something that gives fault discription not just a code.
    Found this on the bay,any members got one if so are they any good?

    rosstech is the one that everybody swears by.... I bought a little code reader and writer for about £60 a 5 years ago (for my Mk3 Golf) and I would probably go with the real stuff if I was purchasing again as this one really only does the absolute basics...

    also: the one you listed doesn't cover many B6's in the list of supported cars for each feature...

    I sell the genuine hex-can-usb vcds/vagcom cables, give me a shout if interested.

    Dont bother with handheld readers etc, no way are these even a substitute for the real thing, said as a user not a seller, many will confirm my advise & will wrk on all vag cars old & new.

    Yes plugnplay, software is downloaded from RT & as long as a genuine interface is used, then this is FOC.

    The one shown is an illegal counterfeit piece of rubbish, I only sell genuine ross-tech cables.

    Sorry I didnt see the bottom that stated it was a scan service only.

    Buttt, 99.9999%, if not all ebay cables are illegally copied, copyright, wont work with newer software, no warranty, no guarantee, will not work with RT releases software, cracked software used, can go on.
