    I can't imagine £80 being genuine.

    All the genuine VCDS I've seen on eBay are near on £200 when they sell

    its a copy at that price. basically if its less than 200 quid its a fake, email rosstech and see what they say if you like. normally the copies work to varying degrees but always lock up when updating to the newest rosstech software. i rate the official rosstech so highly that i bought a second official after losing my first one (now that was f-ing painful). if you want to do more than just logging its really worth it and resale is as high as youd like to be fair.

    I have my own genuine VCDS which I bought from Gendan. I wanted to make sure it was fully licensed and also could do all the updates necessary.

    To be honest there is no real need to pay £200+ as the majority of us are only going to use a tiny amount of potential VCDS has. If I was a mechanic and was working on brand new motors etc then yeah I could see the need to pay the full whack, but for the purposes of clearing faults, logging, and enabling a few features, what else am I gonna use it for? Seems silly in my opinion.

    It's a big investment but the genuine ones keep their value well, I can expect £200 back on mine so it means I paid approx £70 to own genuine VCDS :)

    Yup! VCDS is a must for all VAG Cars! I think mine around 40.00 aswell!...200 is a bit too much!

    Yeah, but you'll never get that £200 back as I doubt it'll be a very long time before you sell your leon, and chances are you'll buy another VAG car lol

    In which case there's more value for money on it :) also with the things I've seen around people having issues in compatibility etc then I've just decided to get the proper thing.

    Changed all my wiper blades and my rear pads today (and not a minute too soon. They were beginning to grind and were very low) may well check on the fronts next week. Just need to get myself a 7mm hex socket so I can have a look. Next up...replace the air freshner wrecked dashboard.
