    Hello.
    I have thinking of getting a VAG-COM cable and i found one online thats cheap and that seems to work with my car according to their description but im not sure and i would like to get some confirmation on it. The cable version is 11.10 ( there are other versions there but i this seems to be the more recent there). Will this version work on my 2007 a3 8p? Has anyone bought their cable in online stores ( cheaper cables)?
    Thanks for the help

    If its too good to be true - then it probably is.

    Probably a fake copy mate

    Im guessing it is a copy/clone cable, especially considering the price. But are any dangers for cables like this? Could it mess up the car electronics or something like that?

    Dont think so - you wont get any support from rosstech if anything goes wrong.

    And yes, that version will work on your car.

    Thanks for the help! :thumbsup:
    I might get it, but i will look more into vag-com tutorials and articles to see if there are any changes i would like to do,because right now what i wanted most is to test the car because i get a strange "bip" when i start it but the error message on the screen disappears quickly,so i want to see what thats all about.

    Thats exactly the one i was thinking of getting, same store and everything. I just didn't post it because i didn't know the rules about posting links(if it was allowed or not).
    So this is of course a clone cable right? It probably couldn't be used with their original software or connected to the internet(i think i read something about cables like this stop working if you put your computer online)?

    Yep if you update it it makes the cable inoperative.

    Genuine all the way IMO

    Nigel (NHN) can supply a genuine one cheaper than retail.

    and later on you can sell your genuine cable on ebay for £15 less than you paid from NHN so you will never loose much ££ anyway
