OK, but according to our records, that HEX-V2 belongs to someone else....?

Hi there, Philip and I share the VCDS at our shop and he is not interested in being on the forums.

"my VCDS " ? But..........., its not your vcds . (?) Verification (as I read "how to get verified") is for the documented owner ; if they are willing to let you use their VCDS, that's between you two or three or four......

I believe this web-site / forum is Privately owned. I didn't read anything in "how to get verified" about transferring verification privileges' ...... this is related however, ............

3) You bought a second-hand system and aren't eligible for support. You can still post in the New User section of the forum, but you won't get posting access to most of the rest of the forum unless/until you elect to transfer ownership of that system into your name. You can do that here at a cost of $99.

Can he (the registered user) authorize me to use the forums?
A VIN-Limited interface that's being shared in a shop, with a company name of "N/A" when it was registered?

It's not VIN limited as far as I know, and yes, there is no company name. So what? Is it that unreasonable to ask for access when the registered user will not be using the forum? Isn't it fair that ONE paying customer is allowed ONE access to the forums?
You aren't kidding about the 'benevolent dictator' title huh? Minus the benevolent part I guess...lol.

You're right, it's not. That's our mistake. Your friend bought a 3-VIN interface from a distributor. He then paid for a one-step upgrade, which should have been to 10 VINs. But someone here goofed and gave him a Feature Code for Unlimited VINs.

Is it that unreasonable to ask for access when the registered user will not be using the forum?
Yes, I consider it unreasonable. The registered user is eligible. Nobody else is. If you'd like to switch the registration into your name, you can do so here.

Ok, fair enough.You can't blame a guy for trying. All I'm trying to do is get some DLA equipped European headlights (5G0 941 043/044E) into my 2017 Golf R. Transferred all the modules over from my NAR headlights and all went well but the damned slave modules at the headlights (3D0 941 329 D) will not accept the coding that the J745 is trying to send them. Tried both ODIS manual coding and VCDS and it does not take the '90 00 00' coding for some reason.

Please start a new thread in the New User section of the forum (where you don't need to be Verified to post) and include an Auto-Scan, so people can see exactly how the car is equipped and configured.
