    Ok i have seen on another forum where members all chip in and bought a Xbox 360 Tranfere Cable or something and shared it out between them.

    It worked by the kit getting posted round to everyone as and when they need it. So say i have the kit, i will post on the forum saying Kit Arrived ETA to repost, and then once i have used it, post it onto the next user. And then post on the forum saying when it was posted with tracking ID as the item will always be sent by recorded 24hr. Once user 2 gets the item they post saying it has arrived and so on.

    I was thinking maybe something could be applied to a vagcom or vagtacho where we swap the use of it round the forum.

    Clearly this would need someone taking point and only lending the cable to users with a certain post count. Just a thought - shoot me down at your will :superman:

    Its a good idea to a point, but like you say its hard to know whether you will ever get it back etc.

    I have lent quite a few tools out on here, a gearbox drain plug socket, boost leak tester, compression tester, spare MAF etc etc
    So far have always had them returned.So it can work
