    I created this vagcom locator map a little while ago because before I got my vagcom, I was using the Steve Hall list to find folks willing to help me out. What I ran into where lots of people in my area that either no longer had the tool, or wanted as much as some shops to do a scan. Seemed to...

    Now, I know that marketing isn't always 100% truthful, but does anyone else think that this promotion is more than a bit misleading? I haven't done the exact math, but a lot of the "not so standard" features aren't standard at all, they are options. Is this what "not so standard" means...
