Question OBDII Cable for RHD Audi S3 - 09-17-2020, 12:13 PM

Good day,

Didn't realise that there are different OBDII cables for RHD vs LHD vehicles.
Would have thought it was one long (enough) cable?

Few questions:

1. Will I need the RHD OBDII cable for a RHD 8V S3?
Just received it last night so haven't had a chance to do any measuring up yet.

2. If I do need the longer cable, how do I go about getting it?

3. I read somewhere that you can use map 1 without the OBDII cable. Is that still accurate for the VAG 2.0T EA888?

Looking forward to tuning map 6 for the 91 octane we have generally available here, and playing around with map 2 now that 93 octane is available in a couple places.

Thanks for the quick email response George.
Posting here for anyone else with a similar question and closing the thread.

All units for a while now ship with the longer cable.
It should be around 1.6 to 1.7meters long.
The routing is over the centre tunnel and out from the glovebox location.

On newer firmware version the JB4 is disabled if the OBD is not connected.
