I recently bought a used RNS-E unit for my 2008 TT. I would like to have a VAG-COM tool when I install it. I see a bunch of these listed on eBay, but I don't know whether they're going to work. Can someonw please tell me what tool/software I need? I saw one listed at Ross Tech for $349 + $99 for software. Is there an alternative? Thanks.

I'd recommend you get a genuine Ross-Tech lead - unless you enjoy struggling with unreliable leads that often have driver issues...

You need either a micro-CAN, HEX-COM+CAN or HEX-USB+CAN lead.

My choice would be the HEX-USB+CAN since that works on nearly every VAG car (the microCAN only works on CAN bus only diagnostic cars like the TT Mark 2, 8P A3, C6 A6, B8 A4, etc.

Software isn't an issue if you have a genuine lead since you can download updates from the Ross-Tech website.
