Buying laptop with vag-com, but it has no cable. Did a search on AZ and looked on ebay and I'm not sure which to get. Looked like many options. I have a 98 QTM so do I need single K line or am I way off base.

Seller is local, so that's a plus.

Thanks guys

Dual K-line is for the B6 only so you dont have to worry about that if you have a B5. Also on the thread he says you need a serial type cable which can be any one of the many out there since they are all the same. If you have a dbw B5 then get the serial cable because then you will be able to use Lemmiwinks too once you down load the free software.

I thought USB wasn't good to use because it's slow. Is this incorrect?

Slower, a bit. Bad, no. Serial ports are old and hard to come by on computers. I have the same year A4. I just bought the following and it is maaavolous:

ebay Item # 4602140021

If the laptop has a serial port, get a serial plug. I bought mine from ebay and use the 311-2 version of vag-com, works great.

Link doesn't work, most likely because Ebay removed it.

used only twice because you don't like USB?

I have 2 cables, old ISO-COM and a HEX-usb. Just wonder if I should sell 1 or both since I am now running stand alone.
