Data Plug

Post by miniman » Fri Apr 16, 2021 9:51 pm

Does the data plug work on a 2020 1.5 tsi, and will it give all functions if it does?
I was told i should have got one with the new car, but did not, so i bought one off e bay.
Thanks.

Hi.Why did you buy one? you can get them free from your vw dealer.I got mine free from my local dealer maybe the same as yours if you are in the West mids. Got rid of mine though as it did not all ways work and was a waste of time anyway.

Too much faffing about with the dealers during COVID, I mentioned it at Solihull dealership when I got car they said “you don’t need one”
VW Sutton Coldfield is my nearest dealership

Mine is Nuneaton.I would imagine the plug still fits on a 2020.I dont know why they would change it.

Nothing much really. Most of it is already available through the We Connect app. I guess if you have an S or SE without the built-in SIM card then it allows you to extract MPG figures and things. I got one with my SEL for some reason but I just binned it as it was pretty useless.
