Hmm...I just got an idea...I wonder if some kind of sharing/rental could be setup with a Vag-Com for those of us not willing to invest the full purchase price.

If enough people signed up ahead of time and were sufficiently patient, one person could buy it at full price, then sell it to the next for $10 or $20 less, who would turn it over for another $10 or $20 less, until it's been entirely paid off, at which point it could simple be mailed back and forth among those members, or it could be sold off normally and the sale could be distributed among the members.

Or, someone could just buy one and rent it out for $10 or $20 per week.

Or...I dunno, I just would like to have one alone for a week or two and not have to pay hundreds of dollars. Maybe I should just buy one and then sell it when I'm done, it's not like I face competition from a large supply of used ones on the market.

I don't think this will work out bc towards the end will buy the cable for dirt cheap and will keep it or sell it for more but you are welcomed to buy my 1 week old micro can for 240 shipped. I cleared my air bag light and made the windows roll up and down so no longer need it

Good point, so maybe a less organized every man for himself arrangement, such as...

but you are welcomed to buy my 1 week old micro can for 240 shipped. I cleared my air bag light and made the windows roll up and down so no longer need it
...anyone want to buy it from me for $230 shipped in at most a few weeks?

WooHoo! I got the Vag-Com. Thanks, Felix!

Questions about data logging:
- Can I get fuel volume/rate (as in, gallons per hour or whatever) data?

- Is there a way to detect DFCO?

- What's the most accurate way to read open loop / closed loop? The first option for fuel system reports it based on O2 sensors and driving conditions. Is it accurate, and does it respond quickly?

I thought that it would go to open loop as soon as I floor the pedal, but in fact it takes a long time after flooring it (possibly waiting for high RPMs) before it does.

You are welcomed Richard, enjoy it!

sorry, but what´s parking light & flash to pass? have a photo o video? i´m spanish, my english is very bad,
Don't worry, your car is EU standard, we already have flash to pash (when you flash your lights at someone to say hello) and parking lights.

...and to answer the other question, the misnamed term "parking lights" means the amber lights and the taillights (or to some people, just the amber lights).

I started to go off on a rant, but deleted it for being off-topic. I'll put it into the annoyances thread instead.

Hey, neat info! Can the VAG-COM or a dealer set the paddle shift function on my R32 to stay in paddle mode longer than the stock 15 seconds without shifting? After 15 seconds without shifting it goes into auto mode and shifts gears. When using the paddles I often need it to stay in the same gear for much longer but it just jumps back into auto mode. Whadaya think? Cheers!

I was refered to you guys from VWVotex.com and trying to find some info. I just installed LED tails in my 07 GLI and everything seems to be working properly but wanted to find out if you can adjust the brightness of the Turn Signals through VAG-COM. I haven't seen anything like that but not sure if I'm looking in the right place.

I've got version 7.4 I believe or is it 7.0.4 something like that.

Thanks,

Chris :iono:
