You may need a different can bus adapter. With my VW Eos, the cutoff for the old style adapter was 2007/2008.

Google for VW can bus adapter and you should find a bunch of posts about it in regards to upgrading the radio.

Scan the car with VCDS. Determine the CANBUS version. If it is 1.6, then you will (probably) need to update the vehicle CANBUS to version 2. This is a hardware update....not a software update.
