Recommendation for Component Removal

    I am looking for some recommendation for somewhere to remove the CP from my DAB radio unit and Convenience Module in my Facelift S6. I had booked into Cartech UK in Bradford on Friday. Arrived at the pre-arranged time to find the place all locked up and no answer on either of their phone numbers. A total waste of a 4hr round trip! The place was also a total dump, more akin to a scrapyard.

    I am based in South Yorks but willing to travel a reasonable distance for somewhere who will actually do it. Rang a couple of localish specialists who give me the usual '2nd hand units cant be unlocked' etc.

    Thanks in advance,
    Steve

    I was looking to get mine done remotely by the resident expert but let's just say that didn't work out.
    Cartech was also on my list but I have been warned off tbh by other people.
    My next port of call is Fast fit in Leeds. Not sure if they can do it but they did do the magride adaptation on my previous S3 so they do have odis.
    He is a helpful guy though and seems to want to help so that might be an option.
    Let me know how if you have any joy.

    I did call Fast Fit in Leeds last week but they are the ones who told me that it can only be done on new modules. Would be interested to see if they give you the same answer though as the guy on the phone was fairly unknowledgable/unhelpful.

    I tried Cartech as their google reviews were very good and they seemed helpful on the phone the one time thy answered!

    Cheers Steve

    Try @DJAlix from vagcar coding.

    If you can get to Leicester he might be able to do it remotely.
