    Hi Bruce,

    A supplementary question - if that's ok

    I've just upgraded my KII - bought a few years ago from yourselves - to HEX-CAN (Thanks NHN!) and now will be looking to sell my old lead.
    If the buyer has already registered with VCDS Lite, would he still have to pay the $99?

    Yes... in this case his VCDS-Lite registration cannot be transferred.

    But, since he already is a registered user with VCDS-Lite, he will continue to be recognized as a registered user. There is really no need for him to make a change although I would love to see the faces of the techs when he emails and tells them he is using a KII... they will surely be confused by all that!

    Do you guys stay up nights trying to dream up ways to confuse us? Isn't it obvious by now they we are more than capable of confusing ourselves? hehe

    Thanks Bruce,

    I don't know who will buy it - but suspect I may be asked that question by somebody so wanted to know before I pout it up for sale!

    Good news is I've now got HEX-CAN, so no more complications from me.
    (….until next time :sm4: )
