    The basic £10 leads and the free version of vagcom works fine.

    The ebay ones are very limited in what they do. ie: they will clear codes but not show you the description of what they are/were, you cant recode modules etc...

    If your just looking to clear the faults, it'll do the job just fine :)

    EBay leads and VCDS light will have limited functions but will be fine for our B5s.
