ECU resetting 200q20v digest

I believe the idea was to EXPLICITLY erase the adaptive memory after
upgrading the car. Does pulling the Motor fuses do this?

The ECU in our cars is -very- simply, 100% reset by simply pulling the
two fuses under the red plastic double-fuse shield marked "MOTOR".  30
seconds should do it.

The proper way is to use VAG-COM or a VAG1551, since both can clear the
codes without erasing the adaptive memory.
