    But I see you've ordered a real HEX-V2 directly from us yesterday.

    That's what I figured when it wouldn't work with genuine software I'd downloaded directly from you, hence ordering the real thing

    What's the shipping time likely to be? Guessing it would have been faster from a UK disty (Sorry Mike@Gendan, didn't spot the distributors until I'd already placed the order!).

    Thanks

    You're right - I missed that bit.
    A quick scan of 2nd hand genuine interface prices on ebay would have been a good idea though.
    If a price seems too good to be true, it usually is!

    No problem.
    Incidentally I can't answer about Ross-Tech's shipping times but had you ordered from us over the weekend you'd have it on Tuesday.
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here.....

    It worked to shut up the annoying beep from the tail gate, so I thought it was genuine. Live and learn :-)

    Let this be a warning to anyone else out there that gets an offer like this at a car meet or similar!

    In theory it should ship tomorrow (Monday) and FedEx is generally only 2-3 days across the pond.

    If you'd prefer to order from Mike, I can cancel order number 20229873 in our system. Just let me know in the next six hours or so.

    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.

    I can vouch for speedy delivery, and you get Haribos!

    It arrived very quickly, but alas no Haribos!
