      None of the cable interfaces have VIN limits. Only the Wireless (HEX-NET) interface comes in either limited or unlimited versions.

      Either will work for your car just fine. The only real difference is that the HEX+USB+CAN unit will also work with older VWs. If you have no need to talk with older VWs the Micro-CAN will work just...

      It would help if we knew what kind of car you had. To put it as simply as possible (assuming you are in North America); if your car is older that 2005.5 you need a HEX (K-Line) interface which would...

      1) There is no "undo" button that remembers what you did previously. This is why I always do an autoscan before making any changes to anyone's car.
