It won’t be wasted money for sure.
Best thing I ever bought.

Can't go wrong with it at all!

I've just had to upgrade mine from 3 vin to 10 vin.
Not quite made my money back yet but done a few things for people :D As well as everything for myself!

I’ve made my money back already by not paying others to do the jobs I’ve needed. Not done anything for anyone else yet. Bought the 10vin as it wasn’t as much more than 3vin as it was to upgrade later.

Good point! Forgot about all the times I'd have had to take it somewhere to re-code stuff :P

In hindsight, I should have bought the 10 VIN one initially :oops:

Hope you don't mind me asking here, will VCDS cable work with ios software or is there any alternative to VCDS that can be used for coding?

I can vouch for VCDS mobile.

I've seen/heard of Carista about on Facebook etc. but I wouldn't touch it personally.

Today I have removed all the BG racking from the back of the van, given the inside a good clean and am about to start some sound deadening. I think I'll start with the inside of the wheel arches and go from there.

Any specific areas people would recommend?

@mikeb1810 one area I’ve found troublesome is the roof. I used silent coat under dodo mat and the silent coat will fall off in warm weather. I’d recommend just using dodo mat or similar on the roof.
