    The VAG106 cables are illegal copies of our product. As long as you don't mind promoting the work of the thieves that steal our product, I guess it is a good deal. VCDS 10.6 is what they stole and sell as VAG106. We do all we can to stop these people. But, consumers keep them going.

    Sure, they do it cheap. They invest virtually nothing other than the time to defeat our protection schemes. All the rest of the work in your tool is courtesy of Ross-Tech. Enjoy....

    Either of those wires look to be fine for VCDS-Lite. I know the blue style has had pretty good reports. I know nothing about the first link.

    Make sure they supply you with the proper drivers for their wires. The VCDS-Lite download does not have drivers to make the wire talk with VCDS-Lite. The provider of the wire must supply this to you.

    Hello Bruce, I am looking to get VCDS Lite as i only need it for clearing/reading error codes. I understand that you do the shareware version, however, where would i be able to purchase a cable which would work. Obviously Ebay, but as you have said in this thread ' Buyer Beware ' so i would appreciate all the help :)

    My car : 2002 Seat Ibiza
    Thanks Buddy

    If you want a trusted source and someone I know in the UK, then go Gendan and look for their KKL cable. They will be pleased to help you.

    Yes, I was lazy and did not do your homework. Yes that is the item they supply. They are our distributor for our full systems as well. Dean and Grant are good friends. I don't think you will have trouble with them as a source of supply. Yes, their price may be a bit higher but I know you can call them on the phone and talk with them. Try that with an eBay seller. Few will answer.

    Query for German Distributor

    Hi

    From the Ross-Tech site I think I need:

    for my 2012 (but 2011 model) 6J Seat Cupra. However the carriage from the US comes up at $66 for delivery by DHL. To reduce he carriage I checked out my nearest distributor in Germany (I live in Spain) from the link on the US site. The only options from there are:

    This is totally different from the Ross-Tech site. Which do I need?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    :confused:

    is KKL a KEY type interface?

    I have purchased a Gendan KKL cable, can't find a lot about KKL. Is it a KEY type interface, is it a KLL type?

    is it safe to plug a K type into a car that might be CANBUS?

    the car is a 2004 SEAT LEON (1M), looking on the VCDS compatibility chart it is KEY/KLL ok.
