It's a mk4 car right? The KII cable will work because at the top it says mk4 body. It's somewhat confusing because of the model year vs. generation vs. North American vs. rest of world.
I believe the reason why the 2005.5+ is listed in red under needing the HEX CAN cable is because the 2005.5 Jetta was CAN BUS and they grouped together the Golf with the rest of the mk5 cars. In addition, it also says (non US) models because the mk5 Golf was sold a few years before it came to North America.
I see now I need the HEX+USB+CAN cable for $80.00 dollars more.
I am sure I will buy this eventually. In these days, I would consider this a must have.
Sorry for answering my own question. But every day I spend on myturbodiesel.com and the TDIclub, I learn more, I do appreciate these websites! Thank you.
Yes, FYI, this is the mk4 forum, your 2010 is a mk5, you need the HEX can. I wouldn't get a serial since my computer doesn't even have a serial port. I don't think most laptops come with serials anymore.
