    Basic settings within EPB, open service mode, close service mode. Easy.

    You’ll also need pro subscription.

    I paid £33.99 for a year (+ 1 month free) but if not wrong, from direct website dongle was £39.99 with years subscription already included.

    Just got mine from one of the main home shopping companies for £15.99 which I thought was a bargain although I will still need to subscribe yearly after the months trial.

    Might do mine as well this week along with the discs do you know if there’s a easy way to identify the disc type needed?

    Gave some thought about the subscription again and think I might be wrong with it.

    I think, lite version allow you for service access (i.e. parking brake service mode). Before I've purchased the yearly version I checked there and could access it but didn't made any changes.

    As long as you have a month trial, it should be fine. Handy tool, tho.

    I got it mainly for the Europe headlamp adjustment.

    Cheers for the info, think I will see what it can do before I sign up for a subscription just in case it will do what I want without signing up as have Vagcom anyway.
