    Why are we still posting information that helps alphasil when he is in the "Hall of Shame"?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Fantastic PetrolDave, you are really funny.
    I don't have VCDS, i went to a Bosh service and i payed the service, so don't judge me...
    If someone want to help i appreciate that, i can't buy VCDS just to code this interface..

    Best regards

    If you were trying repair a 10 year old car, I could accept that the $200 cost of a legitimate scan might be a problem.

    But trying to retrofit systems into a 3 year old car, nope...

    You're looking at the cost of VCDS the wrong way - I purchased my first Ross-Tech lead nearly 15 years ago (and updated to a HEX-NET a few years ago) but those leads have saved me MANY TIMES OVER their cost by not having to pay diagnostic fees to VAG garages and being able to repair my own vehicles (and those of family & friends, even non-VAG vehicles using generic OBD mode). Oh and let's also take into account the amount of free beer I've earned doing tweaks to owners I've met through various internet forums.

    Used wisely buying VCDS can be a positive investment not a cost.

    Hi
    All of you have valid arguments...i know that
    But when someone told me to install the ACC nobody told me that i will have to figure out how to code that.
    I simply buy the cable from a know german company...and the sensor for my car.
    When i went to Bosh to make the final step....i payed and they didn't finish the job since i had protection component, i went to audi dealer and they removed the protection but i still stuck.
    So i think everyone can see that i have valid arguments...it wasn't my fault this cracked VCDS...
    If you want i can show you the bosh invoice.
    Hope all of you can forgive me....
    *About this software how much does it cost and where to buy?

    Thank you
