A '98 car with seat airbag sensors?! I didn't think that they started doing
that until just a few years ago! Dang Germans! Looks like I will need to
cough up the time/money needed for this VAGCOM system. I guess I could look
into fixing my Cruise Control at the same time...

I messed with a similar deal on my ODB1 Mitsubishi 3000GT until I got sick
of it and got an AEM EMS standalone programmable ECU - Wish AEM would make
an Audi version... 

Either way, I know I could Google, but could the wiser minds here share
their wisdom on the best VAGCOM setup and where to get it? I have a laptop
with XP and USB port as well as a USB Serial Port emulator. I also have a
Windows CE handheld PDA - I tossed my Palms a long time ago... Something
that works ether via USB, or Serial or some Windows CE standard should do
