    Mk3 Leon's use a diagnostic protocol known as UDS, the latest protocol to date and at the minute can only be fully interigated using ODIS - VW AG's new multibrand diagnostic software.

    VCDS cables will no doubt need a firmware update and possibly a hardware modification in order to be fully comparable, mind you the Ross tech team are pretty good at finding their way around things to make stuff work.

    Does using VCDS lite allow needle sweep mod to be performed as i dont want to spend the 200 odd quid just for the needle sweep.

    Yes pro version is needed to change programming. If your ever passing Preston on m6 anytime soon let me I'd be happy to show you obdeleven on your motor. You need the adapter and a Bluetooth compatible device.
