      Like somebody said before, there's a huge list on http://www.steve-hall.com/cgi-bin/VAG-Locator.pl.
      Uwe's right though, just buy it if you possibly can and support Ross-Tech. It's not that expensive, considering the total cost of all the tools you need to really work on the car, it's a small fraction. I've spent many thousands on tools, a couple hundred is not much. And compare to the dealer diag cost; and they may not even be straight with you about what they found. I've also done a lot of research into what solutions are available for other cars and believe me, this is one of the most comprehensive, best scantool solutions out there for any type of vehicle. Ross-Tech deserves the business... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      This list is good and all but people should buy it.
      People end up spending $200 on cold air intake which does nearly nothing and dont spend there money on the stuff that reall matters. Like making sure your car allways runs near perfect. So go buy a Vag-Com and support Ross-Tech. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Theres nothing wrong with people sharing technology. I think it would be cool to meet other people that need a quick vag service, because you would probably end up learning a few more vw tuning tricks. Plus someone that has done vag themselves would know how to use it, getting the tasks done faster.
      It sounds like your in ca-hoots with Ross Tech...heh....

      Hi, thanks again for so many replies and a very interesting thread overall.
      I just wanted to pipe in:
      I started this thread because I didn't want to pay the dealer $125 to tell me nothing was wrong. I knew there was something screwy with my automatic transmission, and after asking around in the appropriate forums, I was told to try having the codes pulled to get more info. I'm tight on cash like most vortexers it seems, and I wanted to see if someone could pull my codes (other than the dealer). In the end a mechanic did it for free assuming that there would be something wrong which I would want him to fix (I have an appointment for monday, though no codes came up after a scan).
      The problem with saying, "just buy one" is that most VW owners don't even know what a VAGCOM, they don't change their own oil and believe VW dealers when they claim that your transmission fluid never needs to be changed. For them and those with just slightly more know-how, a couple hundred bucks for a vag-tool is pretty costly.
      I'm glad so many people are volunteering their vag-tools, I hope this continues and that people posting here also post at the larger list already mentioned a couple times:
      http://www.steve-hall.com/cgi-bin/VAG-Locator.pl
      Really, this is one of the friendliest communities online, thanks to everyone who's sharing their VAGCOMs, time, DIY guides, and know-how!
      Abe

      Hey Dog Eater!
      I have been trying to get some help from any one with a VAG Tool but the locator list is kinda iffy. I was wondering if I could bribe you with $20 & a 6 pack? I am in CA the Inland Empire. Anyone nearer willing to help this bribe stands. I am really broke.

      ...I know I'm not the only one that made comments to buy it but I want to say right here that I am only a customer, and an unregistered one even (bought used HEX-COM, that wasn't exactly cheap) so I shouldn't be talking... But I want to make clear I said *if you can*.... I'm not anything to do with Ross-Tech except I think the product is outstanding and a worthwhile buy, it's so much better than a lot of other car specific software. I'll be registering mine soon..

      KAERU666:
      You posted this request elsewhere (So Cal Forum?) But I'll write this again here.
      I can Vag-Com your car for FREE. (Sort of...) I bought a set of Adelaides for my Variant off a guy on CB5 who also lives in Corona.
      Maybe we can all hook it up where you deliver my wheels for me and I Vag-Com your car for you. Unless you car is running so bad you can't make it out to Alhambra... (about 45 minutes from Corona)
      Anyway, email me at camarkim@yahoo.com if you want to even try to set this thing up.
