This was purchased from IPD a year or two back. It's a complete kit and is the full comprehensive software version for monitoring engine data etc.<br>Asking $500. It cost over $1000 new.<br>

Re: IPD Soft Loader for SALE (Needsdecaf)

Aren't the software portion of these tied to the VIN of the car?

When you say software you mean the tune. How about IPDs diagnostic software is that tied to just one car or can it be used on any number of cars?

I bought the softloader for my '04 C70, and the data logging did not work on an '06 S60R (even with an IPD flash, it required the car-specific program) or my stock '01 V70. Although the V70 did connect, it didn't communicate properly. The S60 just locked the computer.<p>If you buy multiple flashes and software, you can use one computer and one cable just fine across all the cars.<p>

Re: IPD Soft Loader for SALE (LloydDobler)

Thanks for the clarification. I hope IPDs new softloader dealy-bob will be more cross car friendly, because buying multiple software for different cars is crazy.

Re: IPD Soft Loader for SALE (barrysharp)

Why is everyone so surprised that the Softloader would be married to that VIN? Nearly every other "performance re-flash" module that you can buy is like this. I've never heard of one that doesn't marry itself to that car, but I'm not going to say that it doesn't exist. Why would IPD sell something that you could make money (or at the very least, cause them to lose money) on by reflashing the entire community? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> Do you get pissed when you have to buy a copy of an operating system every time you buy a new computer (assuming you do it legally)?
