    You cant get a cheap cable to work on newer Audis as they have a CAN-bus communication system which requires a CAN enabled cable to talk to the car. The only cable I know of is the Ross tech USB one at £259.95(they do a serial one slightly cheaper).

    See here http://www.ross-tech.com/

    and this is the cable I use and from where I bought it http://www.gendan.co.uk/product_VCHU.html.

    Ross-Tech also offers an enthusiast grade CAN only cable:
    Micro-CAN

    Gendan and other Ross-Tech UK distributors have this product.

    Is the micro-CAN compatible with A3 2006 model?

    I would not have suggested it as an alternative if it was not compatible. :rock:

    Please see the A3 info page for assurance that it will work. The top of the chart states which interfaces work with the particular model and year.
