      VIDA replacement option for SPA cars?

      Since Vida is now webbased and cannot be "obtained" otherwise, have you guys found another way to access diagrams and repair procedures?
      Is there a way to still use the chinese DICE units on the new webbased VIDA?

      About to upgrade my 2009 C30 to a DRIVe car, and would like to maintain that option. One grows spoiled!

      From what I understand, the answer is 'no'. 2014 is the latest model year you can use DICE/VIDA units that we're familiar with.
      '00 Mystic Silver metallic V70R, Rear Wing, Dolby
      '02 Desert Wind S40 Sports premium/winter pkg
      '12 Savile Gray metallic S60 T5, Premium/Climate/BLIS/City Safety/rear spoiler
      '13 Seashell metallic XC60 T6, Platinum/Climate/BLIS/Polestar-tuned/IPD anti-sway bar
      '16 Seashell metallic S60 T5 AWD (replaced '17 S60)
      '13A DICE/VIDA, x's '93 850 GLT, '04 XC90, '17 S60 T5 (Totaled!)

      Well, not quite. I know it will work on at least some 2015.5 models (I used mine to check a ‘15.5 S60 I was considering last year) but I think that, or possibly some ‘16 models, was the absolute end as we know it.

      I wonder if buying the 3 day online subscription for various other needs also gives you access to ‘16 and newer?
