    You asked this yesterday and were given an answer then.

    Until you can locate someone with VAGTacho in your area, you will need to put your old clocks back in to make the car usable

    Seriously though Mk1, what would be the point in an immobliser that you could bypass by cutting a wire or something else simple?

    On a serious, more helpful note give Midland VW a call, they're in Cannock and might be able to do it for you or put you in touch with someone who can come out to you.

    Oi go easy on the lad will y'all!!!

    Its simple, someone just needs to tell him to get his clocks coded, not that hard now is it???

    OK OK on a serious note as well, Midland VW as Tom has already said, otherwise have a look on Edition 38, im sure there is someone on there that can do it.

    Oh and can you tell we're a friendly bunch on here :moa:
