Never used maxscan before, but vagcom is simple and easy to use.
Thats what the vast majority of people are using on here (or vcds as its sometimes know as).
At least then with vagcom, if you run into any problems with your conversion people will be able to help you easier as you'll be scanning with the same software as they are used to.

Buy direct from Ilexa, don't be duped into buying a copy lead from Fleebay.

You can buy a cheap lead from ebay for about £10 - £20 the download the free software version of vcds.
This will be enough to read/clear codes etcT:

This is the cheapest way without getting a full working version of vagcom. Do a search on here and youll find loads of info on the subjectT:
