As you seem to be quite experienced with the VAG-COM, if you have time could you maybe post a little guide on what you need to buy, where from and whats involved with using this.
A quick search on E-bay finds me lots of Vag-com cables for less than £20 ($40). Any ideas of the differences- the price difference is huge!My cable is the HEX-USB+CAN interface. It cost $349.00. I found the price worth it, as I have two compatible cars, and value the ability to talk to their computers.
The following thread should answer your question:A quick search on E-bay finds me lots of Vag-com cables for less than £20 ($40). Any ideas of the differences- the price difference is huge!
Yes there are. Lots of people have cables, and most of those are happy to help out other owners. A few will insist on a nominal payment for their "trouble", but many don't. My personal policy is, and always has been, that if you're willing to come to where I am, I'm willing to help out for free. That's especially true for quick and easy mods like this DRL thing. If it's a diagnostic issue, and I need to help you spend an afternoon pulling fault codes and measurement logs from the engine computer, I might say that the next beer is on you.Are there non dealers that will perform mods for a price?
And that's just what we've figured out so far on these quite new cars. I'm sure more good stuff is yet to come.but it's definitely worth it. thanks to members like aerodave, quattrings and others i've enabled the voice command, convience window, seat belt chime and most recently , the drls.
