Btw, i will purchase VAG-COM KKL + Alfa 3-pin to OBD 16-pin adapter lead. is that enough right?

I checked at Ebay USA and i found lot of VAG COM KKL, but they say that are for Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Seat. That is the same that will work for alfa/fiat but just need to use the 3 pin adapter, right?

The first lead is fine, the second is not as that one is just a straight through cable. You need one that has a KKL interface circuit inside the 16-pin plug. Also, that type is a DB9 serial plug type. Do you have a real serial port like that on your laptop (because most modern laptops don't)?

Those two cables are all you need (assuming the second one you get is of the correct type). Also, bear in mind that ECU diagnostics on the alloy top CF1 using Multiecuscan requires a software license (~70 USD).
