In general, I'm usually fair with my VCDS cable, I will help most people people who are local to me with a quick scan, and I will email you the complete scan results less than 5 minutes after I perform the scan, on the basis you come to me, usually at my work place in the evenings, as I just don't want to give out my home address.
Recently though, I've had a guy request me via PM for a VCDS scan with zero posts to his name. Hello, do you think I'm stupid? I told him I sold the cable just to be polite!!
Another guy I arranged a time with my postcode etc, did he turn up, nope, wasting my precious time!
I helped clear an airbag fault code for a guy who had just joined on the forum with 3 posts to his name, he sold up 3 days later never to be seen again!
Obviously, there are genuine members who have been grateful for my help.
Basically, what I'm saying is, I'm not going to help ANYONE again with my VCDS cable, unless they are known to me on the forum. I don't mind doing favors for friends of a friend, that's different.
That is all.
