    Hi,

    Seem to be having niggly problems with my 3.2 a3 atm. was wondering whats the best way to be able to access the fault codes. Not bothered about reseting things just a viewer.

    Whats the cheapest way?

    Cheers

    find someone near you who has one and offer them some beer tokens to let you use their cable.

    The 8P A3 needs a CAN bus diagnostics cable - either a micro-CAN or a HEX-COM+CAN or HEX-USB+CAN, so most of the cheap cables are no good to you.

    Hence the £50k on the RS4 that does the job and not the £500 on the old banger that keeps breaking down! :lmfao:
