Madjax has messaged me and said there are two versions of the cable and given me a link of where to get one the same as madmod , apparently it's roulette to which one you get when you buy , they are the same cable but different circuits
I'll post a pic tomorrow (left cable at work)
Cheers tony

Hi mine was off eBay , and I received one the same as the one on the right
Ordered another off dx.com but apparently there's still no way you know which one you will get sent
They are the same cable but obviously not all the same boards
Annoying to say the least

My wires came loose from the board. Anyone know what order the wires attach to the board in? My board is obviously the one on the left

the item you bought^ was removed from ebay since the listing is older than 90 days... can you give us the link to the seller of that item, or look in that sellers items for an updated listing of the cable?

It looks like the one with the silver cable and blue plug is the desired one. Vs the All blue cable? IDK i just though id share, ive been looking for one through ebay, but got cold feet being scared of ordering the wrong one. The one i got is:

the one with the longer circuit board is desired. not sure if it reflects in their physical plug case size. i agree with the color of the cable and plug.

Just a heads up in case anyone is going to only go after the silver cabled/blue bodied VAG-COM's: Mine is a blue wire/blue case, and it's the right cable.

Sorry that it's not as easy as just finding a silver/blue cable.

Ill update once i take delivery but my thinking is:

Blue wire/Blue plug: 50/50 chance you will get the right one.
Silver wire/Blue Plug: Maybe 100%

Just my observation from ebay though. So just because you ordered the right cable and it being blue wired, doesn't mean my thinking is wrong. My thinking is disproved when someone ordered the silver cabled ones and it ended up been the wrong ones.

Did anyone order the silver cable and ended up been the wrong one? Please share your experience.

Madjax bought his from here: Deal Extreme VAG COM Cable

I bought two from them. Hopefully I win big. I expect it to take 2 weeks to get here at least. Will report back. I think we should also investigate and ask the sellers if they would kindly open a couple up and post pictures, or at least tell them which one we want.

Blue Plug Silver Cable.... Let us know, It helps if you message the vendor tell him you want the exact one pictured IMO. Please let us know the color of the cable and if it was the right one.

Can someone point me in the right direction to get the drivers for my BFM cable? I looked on their website but can only find the AFR logging drivers.

Dont buy from here ^^^. They never updated my order status in 4 weeks after payment and I filed a paypal dispute to get my money back, and they never responded to that either. So I ordered one from the same supplier as alieus a week or two ago. It should be here soon.

Look @ post 149 in this thread. There is a link for ecuflash 1.32, the driver will be installed with ecuflash.

I should also add that i bought another one, and it worked with my 05 STi without modifications.

Where can I buy a BFM Cable? I have contacted the BFM email but no reply. Is it better just to buy a ebay one? BLue/silver or blue/blue

I have a blue/silver one that I'm not using. I'd sell it for $25 shipped. I bought it hoping that it would work with my 2002 wrx but never could. Its been reported to work flawlessly with 2004-07 subarus. For logging purposes it works great but for whatever reason reflash and reading is prevented on the 02 and 03 wrx. I had to buy a legit tactrix cable for me to read/write. I know that he just came out with a new version that supposed to behave exactly like a tactrix 1.3v.

I've nothing but positive things from BFM. Cody is a stand up guy and will help anyone out as best as he can. I plan on having Cody tune my car as soon as I have time...

Anyone try the serial version of the VAG-COM cable? Saw it on ebay here and thought it might fix some problems I have with Romraider. When I resume from hibernate on my carpc Romraider can't reconnect to the ECU without me pressing the "reconnect" button (this is with a tactrix 1.3). I suspect this has something to do with USB as I've had the same problem with other devices. The problem went away though when I got rid of the serial to usb adapter and plugged the serial cable straight into the computer. This is what makes me think the OBDII to serial cable would work (for logging only, don't need it to flash).

What do you guys think? Would the modifications for this cable be the same as those for the USB version?
