When you are done at Jesstzn's house, I could use the same setting modification too. :poke:

I think you can also change the behavior of the alarm settings as well. I believe it also may provide near real-time readouts of various engine components. You might dump that into troubleshooting.

I turned off my door beeps - lets my 5mo twins keep sleeping while i open the trunk.

Real-time datalogging (approx 3 measurements/second) is pretty useful... particularly ignition timing vs. rpm & intake temp and requested boost pressure vs. measured boost. Just remember to keep your eyes on the road, not the laptop.

oh... there's also wallet performance: dealer said i needed a new throttle body -- vag-com said i didn't. TB adaptation and 30,000 miles later, vag-com is still right. (saved $400+).

What exactly IS a throttle body adaptation? I've heard it mentioned several times, but I still don't know exactly what it does. Thanks,

Jonathan
