Those of you still interested in coding - please let me know via PM. If there are 3 or more people, I can send a remote coding kit to your location and take care of the features you request - including DVD in motion and corner delete for 2011.5 models and below.

I was never sent the spreadsheet that is referenced above with the list of cars. So the group buy sort of fell apart.

I bought a brand new Acer Dual Core netbook today and upgraded the RAM to 2GB. It's going to be used as a laptop sent to customers for remote coding - so if the GB goes through, I would be sending that over.

I will PM everyone on the list again that appeared to show some interest:
novablackm3
kmarei
emthree4me
baarii
Snipe4real
Vrrooom3
huyner328
330iTiAg
huyner328
Kurohouou
bmaktabi
Longbow64

Here is the coding list: http://ultimatetune.com/Coding.pdf

the reason i never sent you the spreadsheet is because there was only three people in it;

--me; bailed out for reasons explained in my previous post
--kmarei; already got his coding done elsewhere
--Vrrooom3; you communicated directly with him via email and knew the options he was looking for

i think your prices are the biggest reason why the group buy fell apart, not the fact that i didn't send you an irrelevant spreadsheet...

is this the one that was $50 per item?
i paid $60 for everything i wanted
it's a flat rate
and i've seen what's involved
you basically change one line from Activ to nicht_activ
or vice versa
so $50 is a little on the anal rape end of the pricing spectrum

I agree, 50 per item is insane. flat rates really should be it.
