I was looking for a cost effective way to access and clear a fault code on my 2001 Audi TT airbag dash light. Mike at Gendan really knows his stuff. They supplied the interface cable, which was a bargain, and I downloaded the VCDS Lite from Ross-Tech. Within seconds code read and cleared, no dash warning light. Gendan were very fast in the ordering/dispatch and lightening fast in responding to my email queries. A pleasure to deal with and I won't be looking anywhere else for my future needs. Well done Gendan.

Simple but hugely useful and it beats fault finding guesswork hands down. Well priced to get you pointing in the right direction with some decent info from the limited but free version of VCDS Lite. After that you can decide if you want to spend more by upgrading the software. Great support from Gendan too. Overall a great starter package.

Worked ok on a Sept 2004 VW T5, got me into the system to read and reset codes with VCDS Lite. Great service and thanks to the phone operator for checking it would do that model as the website states only up to 03.

Fantastic product!

If you want a product to read/reset codes without the cost of the full VCDS package then this is certainly the cable to choose. Ive only used it 3 or 4 times since purchasing earlier this year but its never failed. Its truly been well made and feels solid and refined, like VAG OEM quality.

The service and support from GENDAN has been superb too, even for a product that supposedly comes with no support (The cable and VCDS-Lite itself from Ross Tech).

Order took 2 days from purchase to delivery and came with a useful help guide. Downloaded drivers as per the guide and worked first time.

Looks to be a well built product.

Used this cable for 2-3 years now, and no issues what so ever.

Many I have used either become loose over time or end up not reporting correctly as a serial device, therefore making the COM port useless.

The Cable has been twisted many times in different directions, and stored in tight packed bags and still no issues, the cable has excellent boots on the joints.
