Re: AllData

My experience with Alldata is that the repair procedures for Audi
are essentially copied from Bentley.  The one nice thing is that
you get all the TSBs if I remember correctly.  If you have the right
you can print the diagrams (which are just right out of Bentley.)  If you
have Bentley, not much need for Alldata.
