Default The Virtual T4

This Christmas my lovely lady funded the supply of my most useful gadget yet... a Virtual T4...

This does most of what the original T4 unit can do but as I am not a full T4 owner it is locked to only the Vin numbers of my own cars...

It is a lot less stuff to cart around than the full setup though...

As supplied by Phil for a princely 150.00 you get the software installed on a laptop of your own supply (min 2.0Ghz dual core processor and 4:3 screen format) and the all important OBD port dongle.

I have been playing around with it changing my preferences and checking over the fuel / air systems, hunting down error codes etc...

It really is quite simple to use...

I would recommend one to any keen enthusiast owner who would like to have control of the options and be able to diagnose the kind of issues on the cars that otherwise may see you heading for the garage and spending at least 150.00 on a diagnostic and fix session...
Also essential for ABS modulator control for a proper brake bleed etc..

Mine is licenced for up to 3 cars VIN numbers, and these can be changed if I buy or sell cars...

Have i missed something? I had no idea these were available. Are you sure its not just for experts such as yourself?

For a virtual t4 guaranteed to do all the jobs for £150 i would buy a brand new laptop dedicated to the task !

I bought a second hand dell laptop from ebay for 80.00 to Phil's specifications, you can get them cheaper....

I suspect he's about to be inundated. Hope his box is empty.
