    BimmerBoostFlash flashers by region

    The VAG community maintains a list of folks with VAG cables, where they're located, and what they accept as payment for use.

    How about we start a sticky here for those with facilities for rent?

    I think a member map where you guys can input your zip code might be helpful so then you can sort by zip and see who near you have a BT cable, or Vbox, or beer.

    Something else to work on oh joy.

    I have a BT cable with 3 vins (2 free) that I'd let someone borrow for flashing if they want. Near Phoenix AZ, 85225.

    You could use Google's new Maps Engine to plot everyone on a custom map. I believe there's a way to also share it to allow people to edit it themselves too.

    If you have a VIN locked BT cable, from what I understood you could still read/write as many DME's as you wanted with BB Flash. But - I may be wrong on that....

    Guys, be careful with the VINs getting locked. I'm not sure exactly how it works, but I would NOT fire up the BT software on a car that you're helping otherwise I think the VIN gets locked inside the cable. Just FYI if you have any VINs left.

    So as long as I do not load up the BT software while connected to a car, the available VIN isn't used?

    I was going to say count me in, but I don't want to loose my extra VIN's.
    From the Bavarian tech manual: "Bavarian Technic enforces this limit by storing the car’s VIN inthe memory of the cable. After you use the cable on three cars, it will only continue to functionon those three cars. "

    If you can leave black marks on a straight from the time you exit a corner till the time you brake for the next turn....... Then, you have enough horsepower.

    VINs are locked on the BT cable when you "clear codes" with the BT software. When reading it does not VIN lock.

    I wouldnt suggest "clearing codes" if the BB flash has that feature intergrated into it. I dont know, havent had the chance to play with it yet.
