    Can i use a Op-com cable on my audi to identify faults using the VCDs software?

    Would that work, i probably need to install the driver for the cable ..?

    "This cable can not work if your car uses a protocol/bussystem like VPW, PWM or CAN-bus"

    I'm not a fan of ebay copies really. I'd buy an original cable, it will recoup its cost in no time.

    Send a PM to user NHN if you're serious about getting one.

    One of the seat forums had a group buy at around 100 quid.
    I got lucky and got one for 150.
    but they do pop up cheap.

    As James rightly says they pay for them selves in no time.
