    Update to the VCDS software!

    I was recently asked if I could code a second key to a VW Transporter and was unable.

    Space saver wheel vs full size space saver wheel and tyre

    I've seen many and not thought too much about them, so a part from the wheel and tyre size being larger, the speed restrictions being the same, why have a full size wheel and tyre and restrict its speed capability?
