    Features that dont claim a VIN?

    Hi, been looking over the website for a description of what I can do with VCDS on a friends car, that wont use one of my 3 vins.
    I know I can run Auto-Scan, but can I clear codes without using up one VIN?
    More generally, will my HEX-V2 warn me before it claims a VIN, or if I try to do something that requires using up one of the VINS will VCDS happily just use up my last available VIN slot without giving me a chance to cancel the operation?

    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.
