Hi everyone, I hope you all keeping well

Im hoping one day to open my own tuning/ service performance garage specializing in Audi, VW as I will be in the UK.

I have come across Ross-Tech VAG-COM VCDS which seems to be almost as good as a factory diagnostic scanner. Has anyone ever used this product?

Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi Hayden,

Sorry for the delay in replying. I have an Audi myself and have been playing with the map and struggling to find information in the UK to reflash it.

I do use the vag com vcds as you mentioned but this is more for diagnostics rather than any calibration changes. I have to say I'm learning as I go with this one with my background in motorsport calibration so oem reflashing is pretty new to me, well at least the software and processes.

At present I have bought a mpps v16 obd cable which I have been able to download the map from the car and now looking for a good package to view and modify it.

I'll be playing with this myself so will try and keep you updated as I go along.

As for paying someone else in the UK to do it there are a selection of trusted reflashers around from the off the shelf maps to full dyno maps!

Have you had any thoughts where you'd going to be based?

Hope this little snippet helps and I will give my best to keep you updated on how I get on with my own investigations.
