    For free software looks like it could be good.

    How much does a genuine cable cost? Saw a used one go for over £160 in ebay in the last few days.

    problem is the A4 of your era isn't obd2 compat, so it depends on the protocols on the device if it will talk or not

    I couldn't get mine to do anything, when I asked on here the general consensus was that it wouldn't.

    Its specific VAG protocol. You may get a few functions but doubtful, I couldn't. Any DBW a4 and B6's will work with it FWIW

    I'm running the torque app and a cheapie BT dingle on mine. Unfortunately the iPhone doesn't support serial bluetooth so has to use a wifi variant. I'm DBW and it shows a lot of info, admittedly some things still missing.

    Even more confused. Com is that keyword 2000 actually becomes an ISO protocol to handle the comms, ISO9141 with a 5b initialization at a 10.4k baud rate if memory serves... :D older vw had a native protocol that wasn't obd compliant and didn't meet emissions legislation, hence the change to KWP2000
