    2017 MK7.5 Golf GTI + HEX-CAN USB?

    I guess this is a kinda presales question...

    I've an existing Hex-CAN USB lead (2008) that I've used consistently with my VW/Audi cars, will I be ok to use this on my forthcoming GTI? Or will I need to upgrade?

    OK to use? Sure.

    Will it access every last module in your new car? Hard to say. Depends on how the car is equipped.

    My advice: Run an and post an Auto-Scan when you get the car and we should be able to tell you if it's missing something.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Is there any CAN2.0b control module yet known in MQB which HEX-CAN USB cannot handle?

    From my knowledge there is the Central konv. module in MLBevo and perhaps the module no. 74 which is I think something with suspension control...?

    I could imagine that HEX-CAN USB interface will end up in smoke connecting to a new A8 though

    I believe there can be some, but I don't have a list handy. Whether they exist in any particular car will depend on how it is equipped.

    I would not expect any physical damage, but I sure don't expect it to work well either.

    Module 4B.

    See my reference scan in the other forum.
