The other huge benefit, IMO, is the ability to diagnose problems before you
bring your car to the dealer. Saves time & frustration on your part, and
also lets the dealer know you're an informed customer.

VAG-COM is absolutely worth the price.  There's a bit of a learning curve
associated with using it, but once you understand how it works and what it
can do, it becomes an invaluable tool.  You can diagnose problems yourself
(especially useful if they are mod related or you are out of warranty) and
in many cases verify the effectiveness of mods. Considering what it can do
and the alternatives, I think it's a steal at twice the price.

It can read a number of engine parameters including requested and acutal
boost, air mass, fuel injector pulse timing, engine timing and knock
correction, and tons of other things.  All of the fault codes are presented
with the VAG code, the SAE code ("P-code") and a text description.

Hope this helps.
