Could we make this thread about legit ODIS users? ODIS Engineering is certainly not available for each and everybody... Please understand that as soon as this drifts off into any not-so-legit theme, we're gonna close the topic down and will act accordingly with the users involved.
.. and the other option which involved purchasing or renting a VAS, such as the outdated 5052, and subscribing through erWin to get approved and setup for those supported operations which were not limited to 2010+ but that tool hasn't been updated or supported by VW/Audi for some time now.
In more recent times .. ODIS has become available per the updated Immobilizer and Pass-Thru (J2534) Noteshere but I haven't kept up to date and I certainly haven't used my CarDAQ-Plus on a modern VW or Audi in conjunction with it.
John, we occasionally speak to technicians and shop owners who are using a Pass-Thru so I'll keep this thread in mind if anyone has feedback to offer.
