Paid for it self in a week, thanks guys.

Thanks to the quick delivery of the IID tool by Dan at Duckworths I just saved nearly the price of the tool.
Dealer and Indy told me I needed a new compressor after replacing the front suspension.
They could not get the car calibrated and it was blocked in extended mode in front and normal mode in the rear.
According to them only a new compressor would get this back to normal.

I'm not a tech, but pretty stubborn and could not believe that a good running compressor would suddenly brake down while the car is at the dealer. That plus the fact I never trust cardealers made me order the IID tool. With the great help of Pat at GAP I got the whole thing back to normal, after flashing the suspension- and EAS ECU, calibrated the car and I am a happy fullfatter again.

Thanks to the nitwits at the Perigueux dealer and the indy the car was 12 weeks out of order.

Thanks Dan and Pat, I even enjoyed working with that tool! Bow down Bow down

Being a total nitwit in the mechanical field, it was not really dificult to get the thing working through the app on the Ipad. The on line manual is loud and clear. ...and it gave me great satisfaction to show these idiots how "honoust" they are.

Good idea Joe... Laughing
