Given the number of VW bits and pieces I've perused (and purchased) over at Aliexpress, they decided to show me an ad for one of the knock-off VCDS cables.
And holy caveats, Batman, get a load of this:


"Turn off your virus scanner"....just trust us....the people who make a business of stealing other people's IP and selling it.

I mean, if you can't trust a thief, who can you trust, amirite?

They should steal some English grammar lessons first.

I see (read) that often. People typing on their small phone screens and then failing to proofread what they and Mrs Auto Correct have written. I’m guilty myself on occasion.
