    In my experience, postage from here to Oz isn't usually too bad unless the seller has been a cheapskate and sent it by boat I've sent a few things across to Oz including one item to Tasmania 3 or 4 years back. In fact the ECU, immobiliser and keys in my video were sent off to a guy in NZ once I'd finished coding them up and they only took 4 or 5 days to arrive if my memory serves me well.

    Gary: I like your optimism - we will see!

    If I can indulge your kindness a little further -would you mind making a comment regarding my PS question, please (or is my question too specific to the Golf mk7 module on my instrument panel)?

    I've just checked this on my car and can confirm that the value you see for the "Transponder ID current Key" measuring block is the ID of the transponder that is currently inserted into the ignition. In my case, the ID value I saw next to "Transponder ID current Key" was identical to the value for "Transponder ID Key 2". I haven't tried with no transponder because I have an old school non-KESSY setup which still uses an ignition barrel and bladed key. The ignition needs to be on for VCDS to work and I don't really want to start unnecessarily dismantling my key to remove the transponder just to do a test, so I think we can take your results for granted that with no transponder present you always see a "N/A" value against the "Transponder ID current Key" measuring block
