    Vag-Com, now that's something I really miss from when I had the Leon.

    Did you modify the OBD.ini? I can dig out some install instructions if that will help?

    If you can that would be great! Cheers.

    Standard install instructions written by some kind soul here http://www.minispecial.com/docs/inpa.doc

    You'll still need the changes to the OBD.ini to use the vagcom lead.

    thanks - do you know if the VAG.COM cable needs to be physically modified?

    Not sure. I think it's not required for the majority of cars. Got a feeling it's only for the older cars.

    There's two mods people do, one is to solder pins 7+8 together to bridge the K line. The other is for ignition detection which is a requirement for using it with DIS.

    If the vag-com has BM/BL chipset then it will need to be modified by soldering the chip legs, if its uses the RL then the chipset can be software programmed. You can also do some additional wiring to get true battery/ignition detection to work
