    hi guys, just been looking on ebay at the diagnostics trouble code readers, and to be honest i dont know which one would suit me best for my 2006 a3 2.0tdi, all claim to work, yet the prices vary dramatically from £20 to about £150. I did want to just get a cheap cable and run vagcom but i hear that it doesnt work on modern vag cars and i would need to spend more cash, something which i dont really want to do.

    can anyone advise on the cheaper hand held tools? does anyone have one? which one?

    these are the ones i've been looking at on ebay:

    many thanks

    steve

    You want Vag-Com, or VCDS from NHN on the forum. Simply AMAZING tool.
