    Help with a MK4 golf 1.9 TDI :)

    Hi guys,

    I have just done my first scan and I'm wondering if anyone could help me out and tell me what I need sorting right away and the likely cost of it. Thanks in advance

    Code:
    VCDS-Lite Version: Release 1.2
    
    Remainder Removed.  Data from a hack/pirated copy of VCDS-Lite is not acceptable here.

    Getting help in this forum requires the use of a legitimate version of VCDS.

    You can download an un-hacked one here:
    https://www.ross-tech.com/vcds-lite/download/index.php

    And you can buy a license for it here:
    https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/vcdslitereg/

    Let us know if/when you get one and we'll adjust your forum status.

    Ross-Tech doesn't sell anything on eBay and has never provided VCDS-Lite on media of any sort. The only place to get a license for VCDS-Lite is at the link I provided.

    Then you need to open a case with eBay to report that you have been sold counterfeit goods.

    If the English version of VCDS or VCDS-Lite is supplied on a CD then it is almost certainly a hacked rip-off.

    With VCDS-Lite, the cable itself is not an issue. The hacked software you are using is.
