I wouldn't do that mate,essentially you are just announcing that you are going to break the law.Remember RossTech are on this site and worked hard to provide that software.If you're on a budget,registration is only $99!

Your allowed to use any functional cable with a free lite version of VCDS (download from rosstech website) this lite version will allow you to do very basic things but findout if your cable is a working one. If your happy with your lead you can then buy the full version for $99. be aware that all newer cars will not work with those cables so your effectively buying something with a limited use.

which cable will i need mate? as for vagtacho i may buy that one instead
I'm not really up to speed with Vag Tacho,there are plenty of cables on fleabay,but as to which ones are any good or not,I cant really help.To be honest if you don't know what you are doing,it may be safer and cheaper to ask someone on the Forum with the kit and knowledge to help out for beer tokens or something.

You'll probably not get anyone on here to specify you an eBay Vagtacho cable since all the software is illegal. Unlike VCDS who offer a trial software, Vagtacho do not.
Genuine Vagtacho is very expensive
