PC-based diagnostic tool comparison (VW/Audi/Seat/Skoda)

VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda PC Tools at a glance...

The following cables are compatible with most VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda vehicles with a 16-pin diagnostics socket. The cables, together with software downloads, provide access to all systems within a car (unlike the EOBD tools which are engine-only). PCs and laptops should be running Windows 98SE or newer.

Adaptors are available for some pre-1996 VW and Audi vehicles with a 4-pin (2x2) socket.
