    Depends what year it is mate,

    Later cars its on the drivers side quite low down directly below headlamp switch.

    Earlier cars have it just below the front ash tray in the centre console. Directly below head unit.

    Pre-facelift dash will be behind a plastic cover under the ashtray, facelift dash will be underneath the drivers side dash below the light switch, you have to go pretty low to see the plug.

    Plug the VAG-COM in after you've driven the car too. :)

    Good point, just incase they have cleared all the fault codes before you drive it.
