Not a bad idea, but a couple things-- first, I don't want to support IP infringement, and second, unless the casting for the shell is identical to Ross-Tech's, things could go horribly wrong. Even the "Ross-Tech" embossing on the casting could change the dimensions enough to no longer fit.

I wonder if Ross-Tech would be willing to sell me just the empty casing and plug from their spare parts bin, no electronics inside. I'd gladly spend $20 for test fitting purposes.

I’d send you mine but shipping to / from Vancouver wouldn’t be quick / cost effective.

My guess is that Uwe would never go for that.

Why wouldn't a business owner want to get free publicity for his product? Out of paranoia that I'd want these parts for nefarious purposes? What would stop me from buying one just to get at those parts? If I had nefarious intent, certainly a few hundred bucks wouldn't stand in my way from pursuing it.

His loss, then. Sure, most of his customers are service techs and are using his device in a professional capacity and could care less about a little custom widget, but he is most likely losing enthusiast business to OBDeleven, and people seeing this thread who are on the fence between buying an OBDeleven or a Ross-Tech VCDS may be swayed towards OBDeleven.

Yup, don't disagree with you at all, just a guess on my part. I'd say its still worth it to contact him and see what he says.

I would send you mine however its a micro-can which most people don't use anymore (but still works perfectly fine).

Package came in a day earlier than USPS initially thought it would.

Install is definitely easy. Luckily, I have a plastic trim removal set from Amazon b/c I first tried to use a thin plastic trim tool that came with my dashcam. For some reason that didn't do anything, but a slightly thicker one from the Amazon set did the trick to pop out the card slot thing.

I'm happy with it. Thanks, southpaw! Name:  20180516_183844.jpeg

Update for batch two orders:

batch two prints have arrived...



Sanding and painting now...

Then the OBD port gets glued in...

Since there were 27 orders in this batch, it's not possible for me to get them all out this week. I will complete about half of these by Tuesday and will ship then... the remainder should be finished by the end of the week, and should ship by Saturday. I will ship these in the order in which requests came in.

If you've been put on the list for batch two and haven't pre-paid yet, please do so (there are three that I am still waiting on), or those units will be set aside for those on the list for batch three.

I'm in the process of getting 27 units from batch 2 packaged and shipped .

This project has taken me way more time than I had predicted or wanted. Once these ship, I will have to up-price batch 3 and/or provide a DIY option at the existing price (such as shipping the buyer the raw 3D printed insert + OBD port, and letting the customer sand/paint/epoxy the port in place). I spent several hours with the palm sander on this batch... then there's washing, drying, prepping for paint, and sanding between two paint coats.

I think I'm on batch 3, right? What will the adjusted pricing be?
