    No. Your HEX+CAN is an older design and there no space left for further enhancements.

    Yes, of course:

    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.

    What more options I get with HEX-NET compared to HEX-CAN, except for enablaing developer mode? I have read that is lot faster, but with my HEX-CAN, I was still able to make coding and adaption changes to my A6...

    Well, a HEX-NET also gets you WiFi connectivity and VCDS-Mobile, but in order to use the latest features in VCDS, a HEX-V2 will do just as well.

    Then no Audi Smartphone Interface for you unfortunately. You have an MIB2 unit but the SVM process will not allow this feature to be activated on your system.
