  1. Hi lads Was thinking of departing from BCA and transitioning to manheim. What are your guys experiences with them? What are the prices like in comparison to CAP? TIA
  2. Hi there lads Was wondering if you could help me with a good car lift ramp supplier? Need a lift for a second premises and the lad who I brought the first lift off tried to upsell me a ramp, and these were his words “ yeah mate the one I sold you last year was cr*p so you don’t want that anymore, I was strapped on cash and they were cheap and from Poland so I sold them for a little while until I made some more money but this ramp is amazing”. So definitely not going to him again :) Any suggestions? Northwest would be ideal
  3. Hi lads Has anyone else’s insurance increased dramatically this year? who would you guys recommend as a broker?
  4. Nearest Costco to me is about 25 miles away tbh so that’s out of the equation
  5. Hi guys with the rising cost of fuel I have started to look into fuel cards, even though they only give on average 3p per litre discount- it adds up! So I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on which is the best one to go for
  6. Ton of water in intercoolers, drained them worked my magic and cars up and running now with no faults or misses
  7. Got a flood damage Porsche in and can’t start the engine does anyone know how to disengage park without starting the engine 2019 Porsche Panamera
  8. Try a different dealership, there’s always one who has them in stock
  9. Have got loads of these of dealers, just go into parts and ask for a replacement, if you have the current one now and it’s damaged take that in as it usually has a letter to inform the dealer I.e. D, F,G printed on the inside
  10. Hmm I have noticed that on the only launch website that looks legit it’s twice as much but I did get this message off the seller: Hello, Thanks for you contact us . We are Launch authorized dealer on Amazon. All LAUNCH products we sell on Amazon are original and can be registered on LAUNCH official website, if you have any problem on product registration, activation, software update, X431 APP re-installation, please feel free to contact us Best regards Doris Thanks mate appreciate it
  11. Well it’s got all the latest firmware downloaded plugged it into my 2014 s4 and it started downloading files for online coding, but I haven’t tried coding anything with it as of right now There was only one launch retailer I could find online and they were out of stock so went on Amazon and it looks like they have a professional Launch store so I went with them... Cleared an A35 Airbag light today and nothing went wrong so that’s a good sign but let’s hope it stays positive lol
  12. I can’t seem to locate the online login to update, I know on the x431 App it’s allowed me to update to the latest software but then again that can just be cloned software Tried it on a 2018 Volvo XC60 2018 Renault Clio 2019 A class A35 AMG W177
  13. Hi guys was wondering if you guys could shed some light on this- I’ve just received a Launch X431 v4 from Amazon, is there any way to check if it’s genuine? as I’m starting to have my doubts the Amazon store looks certified but there’s certain things like the product picking up the wrong model and show 35 faults for a vehicle which only shows a fuse fault on the instrument cluster... This is the product.. LAUNCH X431 V (X431 Pro) Bi-Directional OBD2 Diagnostic Scanner, Key Fob Programming, ECU Coding, ABS Bleeding Brake, Reset Functions Including Oil Reset, EPB, SAS, DPF, BMS, SRS, TPMS
  14. Hi there fellas, I was looking to upgrade my Snapon OBD scanner (ethos Edge upto 2017 cars) for something a little newer that will let me read ECUs and clear the faults, if it could program and calibrate that would be a bonus too. which 2021 Hardware do you guys suggest or do you use that’s good? I already have Dealer level JLR software so them cars aren’t an issue but all these new cars communicate differently if I’m correct.
  15. I tried insuring my m5 comp on my policy and for some reason they kicked up a fuss saying that it’s too high risk, even though I’ve got no restrictions and I deal in performance motors. no other car has ever had this problem. Maybe it’s because I put a private reg on it If you don’t mind me asking who are you insured with, David? I’m with Ageas, and In my first year with them they said they couldn’t do such a thing but after an error due to my insurance broker I “Requested” an any driver policy or I’m switching brokers and they were happy to accommodate at the same price... Im pretty sure any of our policies don’t allow us to “drive any car” as all the previous policies I’ve held state the vehicles need to be in my name or my business name in order for me to drive SDP
