This assumption is incorrect. Even for a virgin KOMBI, it's not going to get the VIN from CAS 'automatically'. It only happens when you are using ISIS with the procedure of 'replace' the KOMBI.

After doing what I mentioned for EEPROM, the ECU would treat itself as a virgin one...Actually, you need to write the VIN into KOMBI before you can use any coding tools.

For E platform, I used Tool32 with KOMBI_87.prg to run the job of write VIN (I cannot recall the name of the job and will post back) and then do coding with NCS. I think you should take the same approach.
