    I want to read and check data and readings from my car to make sure everything is running alright. I know VagCom is the best software around but i just havent got £200 to splash out. Ive seen there are several software alternatives on ebay, does anyone on here have experience using a cheaper type of software to vagcom or any suggestions

    Thankyou Mike

    Find someone who has it near you who will do your logging for beer money or a specialist are about the only alternatives tbh.... Quite a few code readers out there to be had cheaper but non have the benefits of VAGCOM.

    One of the best £200 purchases I have made for my car IMO... If you sell the car you should still get most of your money back selling it on to someone else...

    agreed, most garages will charge £50 just to plug your car in, so use it five times and you got your money back straight away

    and as tuffty says, if you sell the s3 either sell it with the car or someone on here is bound to be in the market for a second hand vagcom!!
