Default OBD2(VAG-COM) cable + workshop manual

Hi,

Does anyone here know where I can buy the following in Delhi/NCR? If I can't find it in India, I will have to buy these from the US :(

1. OBDII VAG-COM cable for Skoda Fabia.
2. Fabia workshop manual or Haynes Fabia manual.

Thanks

I doubt if you will find them here in India, infact many mechanics will show a monkey face if you say OBDII.

Ask Peter Chacko of Petes.

He can get you the VAG com cable software. You can then download the software from Rosstech.

Are you sure to fiddle with the ECU of the car.
A Better solution will be go to the workshop and tell them to connect the VAG COM. They will do whatever you wish.

Thanks eclipse.

Looked at petes.in. They seem the most likely to have this cable. Have sent them an e-mail and will follow up on phone tomorrow.

I have the software and the manual downloaded and ready to go.

Saraf, I know for sure; since I bought the VAG com kit from Pete's.

They will send you the cable and then you can download the software from Rosstech.

Cheers !

Yes they did get back to me. They are charging 32,500/- for the cable which is quite a premium over the US prices. I will buy it from the US next week.

Hi Nikhil,

I have a 2010 Jetta and wanted to know if you can help me as well. The cost of the cable in India is just too insane. Rosstech charges around 249 USD.

Just in case if you are willing to help and if the VAG-COM can be used with a Jetta, i would sincerely appreciate your help
