Please don’t pay via gift anyone. Just cover the fees yourself, that way you’ll be protected.

My understanding of paying as a gift on PayPal means you have no case if transaction goes wrong.This is something that we would discourage.

Thank you for the input! Im not very well versed in how paypal work, ive seen pay as a gift on a couple of threads and thought that was the done thing!
My apologies
 
It should be safe on a forum however you never know when you will have a dispute. The seller should pay the fees however if they are adamant, then pay the fees yourself.

You’re being rather naive there, Homer. The buyer has zero cover if they send f&f or gift. Always either add more to the amount or have the seller absorb the fees.

I think my post was mis-understood, or maybe even worded incorrectly. I completely agree with you and have always added the fees myself. I was stating that on a forum you would expect forum members not to shaft each other but unfortunately it happens, and quite often :(

I would always advise anyone buying goods privately to pay the fees and not use the 'family and friends' if they are neither (and even sometimes if they are! lol)

Back to the thread, sorry for the de-rail
 
Hmmm as far as im aware just when you change the coding. But im not certain on that im sorry.
 
To clarify the VIN situation Ross-Tech who are the VCDS manufacturer state the following, I hope this helps:

Will VCDS count a car's VIN as toward the license limit as soon as I plug into a particular car?
No! VCDS will never count a VIN toward the license limit without the user's explicit permission. It will always ask you first, thereby giving you the opportunity to decline to "register" a VIN in the interface. Besides, there are a lot of useful things you can do on an unlimited number of cars.

What functions are not VIN-Restricted?
A VIN-Limited interface can do Auto-Scans, Clear DTCs, and look at Measuring Values on an unlimited number of cars. I think this is important because I wouldn't want to keep an enthusiast from doing basic diagnostics on his friends' cars, or to use his VCDS when evaluating used cars he's contemplating buying. You wouldn't buy a used car without doing an Auto-Scan on it first, right? In addition, you can make channel maps on an unlimited number of cars because sending us those maps helps us improve the product.
