    Ive found this and it has all the correct pins in the right place to talk to the car but would i be able to plug it into my laptops serial port and use INPA with it?

    Not with that one, that's just a 1:1 lead that is meant to be a replacement for a busted lead to an interface.
    You'd still need the interface in between that and the laptop.

    This. Plugging that in to your computer may well damage your serial port.

    See post 16 here.

    I've corrected your thread title for you. The year is important when establishing if your car is OBD1 or not and what leads will work.
