It's worth buying an ebay lead for your cause mate. I got mine for about £14 delivered. Just need a lapptop then and away you go.

Or buy it from VAGproducts.co.uk like I did. Can't do autoscan which is a pain though.

Not at all mate. Pain to get working on Vista though but XP works fine.

just bought one for £13.99 off ebay..
Ill do some logs when i get it and let you guys know what happens..

In the meantime im going to replace a faulty brake switch that i have been getting a fault code for, over at vwvortex they think this may be a possible cause, fingers crossed.
