    The version numbers you're quoting relate to the software revisions.

    Have a look on the Ross Tech site for a breakdown of what lead you need, or ask the question in the VAG-COM section. You need to also consider what sort of laptop are you going to use - have you got USB or serial ports available?

    Bobby, send a private message to NHN, he can get genuine leads and will be able to guide you to exactly what you want.

    I am looking to get the full version with the cambus lead too as the owner of my lock up has a few 05 onward VAG cars and saw me using vag com on my car and asked if i could get it for his too.
