The price does make me feel like I missed out. But waiting 2 weeks for a delivery that then doesn't work and also nearly ruined my laptop trying to install 3 different operating systems and still getting no where was too stressful. I spent days trying to resolve issues.£263 vs £12 ????? Are you both MAD ? ;-)
Added to this I bought one that everyone gave good reviews for and it still didn't work so I was lost as where to buy next, especially when the manufacturer claimed it was working properly.
I didnt want to wait any longer with long delivery times, and my thought process was...It will cost £70 for a garage to plug it in and as I am likely to always now have Vag cars it would only take a few uses to have gained my money back.
The cable will also always be up to date and holds its value should I want to sell it. Most used ones that go up for sale (which is rare) sell for around £200+ so even if I used it and sold it I would probably still save money compared to paying someone.
This is the one I ordered
