I bought mine last year, the ebay listing has now gone but this cable here looks identical to the one I bought:

Don't pay $100 for an identical cable sold by unscrupulous sellers trying to trick you into thinking ebay cables don't work.

Be prepared for a long wait though, probably at least 3+ weeks to arrive

I bought the one from onestopelectronics which is highly regarded. Has worked flawlessly for me but it is a $100 cable.

I bought one of these and couldn't get INPA working. The battery/ignition dots would not come on. Ebay cables are absolutely hit and miss.

I ended up getting the one from onestopelectronics and it worked perfectly first go.

Do sensing ignition allow more functions with INPA? I dont have ignition sensing too but i can still read and clear error codes

Thanks guys. Yep I found that one stop place and was considering the $99 cable. Still cheap vs a VW/AUDI cable!
