I built a cable myself using these plans over five years ago and it still works great!

This opto-coupler based adapter only works with version VAG-COM version 311.2 which is still available from Ross-Tech:

You can download the software, test it with the cable, then Register for $99 to unlock all the features:

The free software is OBDII generic stuff, which does not seem to work with this cable even tho VAG-COM says it finds an OBDII compliant cable. There is nothing like VAG-COM however and no I will not build you a cable.

edit: ALSO WORKS WITH VCDS-Lite!
