The reality is that most of us don't have a $2000 device so need to consider other, viable methods.

GOOD jumper cables and a second, running, car :thumbs-up:

There are a LOT of modules hidden in modern stuff!

It doesn't run when the engine is off, but the electric auxilliary cabin heater in our VW Tourans draw 80 amps at full power... but on a winter morning, the cabin is hot, before the engine is up to temperature B)

Been reading all the posts regarding the battery charger. Fun times.

Anyway, I'm looking to invest in a slightly bigger charger (but probably not as flash as Glenn's one :P ). Mainly because I'm looking to do my xHP flash pretty soon as well. Unless someone has a charger (at least 20-25A that they can lend to me for a day / few hours) :P

I managed to do the big MHD flash (~40 mins) with my CTEK 5 amp charger without any issue, but from what I hear the xHP flash draws a lot more current than the MHD flash. So to err on the safe side I'll probably look towards a 20-30A charger for my piece of mind. If anyone has any brand or model recommendations (e.g. CTEK), what are your favorites?

Took me 15min all up to do the initial flash (8HP) ;)  

Tells you exactly how long it is going to take.

Looking to borrow a D-CAN or modified VAG-COM USB cable for use with NCS Expert.

I need to do some programming and mine are buried in my storage containers somewhere.  It's been 4 years and I have no idea where they are.

In Masterton.  Wellington is fine.  I will be there often.

Ive got a threaded rod with brass press cups that i bought as the e39 rear ball joint tool from the UK. Is the touring the same?

Tool looks like the one in attached image for ‘ball joints’ also in image.

Now have a hub puller set in Auckland available (can ship). A seriously useful tool if you're doing hubs or bearings.

Anyone in the Hamilton area have a multimeter I can borrow for an afternoon friday or Saturday this week. Need to test my battery

A multi meter will only give you voltage. It will not do a load test which is what you need to do after charging it for at least 24hrs. If its over three years old...replace it
