    it will either be in the center console so underneath the ashtray in the middle at the back under a cover witch i think where yours will be or it will be below the steering wheel in the lower dash little port there but thought you would of noticed it already if it was there

    as long as it covers vag u should be ok most do eg snap on etc but honestly i wouldnt try unless i knew it would read my ecu its not worth the risk just incase it messes it up
