Both our current interfaces are "universal" (compatible with all diagnostic-capable VW/Audi).

The only catch with your car is: Does it have a 16-pin OBD-II connector or does it still have the old black and white "2x2" described at the bottom of the above-linked page?

More info. Mine has the 2x2 connector and the Hella / Audi ECM 4AO 907 473 H Apparently this vehicle is OBD1

So will your software work with this and the 2x2 adaptor plus the wired interface?

Thanks for your help.

In principle, it should, although to be honest, it's been a while since we've tested it on anything quite that old.

Hi Uwe,
I am about to purchase the $199 version of the software and cable. What do I do about the 2x2 connector/adaptor - can this be purchased from you?
Does this run fine under Windows 10? I am purchasing a second hand laptop and it has Win10 installed already. Its a dual core 7 year old compaq. I would prefer win7 as that is what i am familiar with but only using it for VCDS so would settle for Win10 if VCDS runs fine.

Personally, if I only wanted VCDS to work on my own car that had the old 2x2 connectors, I would not buy the 2x2 adapter. Instead, I would get a 16-pin OBD-II style socket, perhaps from a salvage yard) and wire it up in parallel to the 2x2 connectors.
