VCDS

VCDS is a software package for Windows that emulates the functions of the dealers’ very expensive proprietary scan tools. To see what functions it can perform as compared to the dealers’ tools, check out our Function Chart.

Want some reasons to choose VCDS over a generic OBD-II scan tool? See this Real World Comparison.

For an interactive web-based demo with lots of screen shots that also doubles as the product manual, spend some time surfing the On-Line Demo/Manual.

In order to use VCDS, you need a PC to run it on. Obviously, a laptop is most convenient, but it is not essential.

To connect your PC to a car, you will need an interface-adapter. We have several types to choose from.

Does it really perform as advertised? We’ve got hundreds of systems in use at VW and Audi dealerships. To assuage any doubt, VCDS comes with a Satisfaction Guarantee.
