    What measuring blocks does VAGcom VCDS provide for checking/verifying the timing on the BPY engine? for the old 1.8T and 2.7T, I used blocks 090-093. I would assume similar data is available for the 2.0T? What ARE the values/ranges to correct timing of the BPY engine?

    My haunted Passat , at 225,580 miles, it has been a great car. However , for no apparent reason (that I can see), the car will lock itself, roll up the windows and sunroof.

    Hello, Anyone got a vagcom in Towson area? I got a 98 Passat and need to do a TBA.

    Looking to see if someone can check the body throttle alignment. The car is starting but turning off. Repair shop doesn't have a vag com and they are basically guessing what the issue is.
