Going to guess GTA = Greater Toronto Area? Was wondering this question for the longest time...came to me yesterday lol.

If your coding computer doesn't have a serial port (mine does), you also need an adapter like this one http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ht_3147wt_1165

I bought this adapter and couldn't get the driver to work on Win 7, so I suggest you spend a bit more on an adapter with confirmed working win 7 drivers (if that's what u use).

TBH, just spend the extra $$ on the $85 cable. a) 80% of people on here use it, it works b) you can help others code locally if they have cars later than MY 06, most importantly c) save the frustration on making the serial->usb adapter driver working, it's also just one more thing to go wrong.
