I recently bought the busted finger motorsports cable. all 4 of my computers would not load the drivers for it. Something was wrong with the cable. I used ebays buyer protection to ship it back to BFM and they said I "tampered with it" and that the failed install was a "user error". I never once did either. I finally got my money back from them and wanted to give you guys a heads up that if they send out a bad cable they will not admit the cable was bad and will blame you.

With that being said I purchased a vag com cable for $11.49 shipped off of ebay to my door and it was here in 3 days.

I have a 2005 subaru baja turbo 5 speed.

I used FTDI drivers and it installed no problem. I am using ecu flash 1.32 and it works flawlessly. I pulled the stock map without any issues after finding the green test mode connectors buried high in the dash. The cable even has a blue led on it when you plug it into the obd2 port. Both romraider logger and ecu editor work as well.

Best 12 bucks I ever spent. Stay away from BFM. I can post the nasty emails here if you want to see them.
