Here is my idea...

To start a global Tech II location thread and how much owners charge for the use of the Tech II. I figure it might help out a few owners make a couple of changes to their cars for much less than the stealerships would charge. There are similar threads for cell phone modding tools on XDA.

If you want to be listed on this then please list your
$$ requested for your time/help

I will add your listing to the second posting on the thread.

Hopefully we can work together to make this happen!

Listed by Country - State - City alphabetically. I have listed the price that each member would like. It's only fair to pay a little something for their time and services as they have had to fork out cash to purchase the Tech II and then taking the time to help you out. Please be generous in supporting these people who are lending a hand!

At the end of each location I have listed the user's forum name for you to click on which will take you to a separate page to PM, or email the forum member. Please remember to keep everything civil and treat others as you want to be treated. Please support these guys and gals who are so generous with their time and goods.

This is a good idea - I'd like to be a part of this list.

I'd like to see how much others are charging before setting my price.

Thanks guys... updated the 2nd post with your details... thanks for getting the ball rolling on this. I am secretly hoping to get someone from Perth putting their hand up so I can get my HID error turned off!
