RE: Bought a micro-fiche viewer.

Actually, it *is* possible to modify a standard fiche reader to read VAG
microfiche -- I have one such modified beast (the conversion was done by
a friend, not me, so I don't have precise details).  The "real" VAG
viewers are still much easier to operate than the hacked units, and have
much bigger screens for easier reading.

Make friends with your dealer's parts guy ... they may just have an old
one collecting dust in the corner.  I bought one such unit for $20 a few
years ago (no, I don't have have it any more).
