    I just got a 2001.5 b5.5 passat 1.8T Manual Trans Silver Will be trying to do what I can with it to make it a little more presentable. Last night I changed the coils and plugs to some Hitatchi's and some NGK's one step cooler than stock. Looking to do a wrap on the car in the near future.

    I'm considering buying the Vgate Scan VS450 scan tool. Does anyone have any experience/review with this scanner or any vgate scanner? The price is right, and I don't need to carry around my laptop.
