    Im trying to find out for a mate which lead he needs to run Vagcom on his car.

    Car is an 8P Audi A3 2.0 TDi S line, 56 reg.

    Can anybody give me some links to the correct lead he needs please?

    Like most things in life you get what you pay for. Genuine VCDS may seem expensive at first but once you have solved a couple of problems with it you realise its money well spent. Be warned that cheap ebay items do not always work and certainly will not be updated by ross tech so will be out of date before you even receive it....

    Totally agree with everyone above. DO NOT buy an ebay one. You'll waste your money and end up regretting it.
    If he can't stretch to getting a proper one from Nige, then contact someone in your area with VCDS and they'll plug in and sort you out for a few quid.

    I'm in the minority here but I bought one from www.vag-diagnostics.com and for the last two weeks it's worked fine. It appears to be genuine and has helped on both mine and my brothers car so far.

    Just my 2p :) the choice is yours. Nigel is a very trusted member on here and as you can see recommended to the hills and back.
