    Apologies if this is the wrong section :)

    Just wondering if there is any other software that will work to display info about the car eg MPG etc, a pc based DIS (my car hasnt got one) would be useful to work out on certain journeys some values from the engine.

    I did find some utilities that work with wireless odb cables to an iphone etc so I know theres somthin out there

    Thanks

    I had considered it, did search for retro fitting DIS but didnt come up with much, and not sure if its above my capability to install.

    I understand you will need new clocks off a similar car and the wiper stock with the controls but what about recoding the clocks for the cars immob?

    I assume my car should be ok and not too old to install DIS (1996 1.9 TDI with a 1Z engine block) as VCDS seems to report valid data in the measuring blocks like fuel left in the tank etc.

    Thanks
