On the contrary (Uwe Ross).

He has always been helpful and goes out of his way to provide not
only a great product (VERY reasonably priced), but a very high level
of customer support as well. 

In your past "dealings with him" (Uwe Ross) on
<mailto:VAG-COM at yahoogroups.com> VAG-COM at yahoogroups.com,
you were being a bit obtuse you got called on it. It was, IMHO, well
The only messages that may have gotten 'moderated' were when it got heated 
and they were probably not only off-topic, but I'd bet they contained
deemed inappropriate. All of the main discussion's messages are still there,

for all to read. Uwe did NOT moderate you in the way you infer below.

Low blow!!

As many of us on  <mailto:VAG-COM at yahoogroups.com> VAG-COM at yahoogroups.com
told you before, when you
ranted about the price and the ant-piracy etc, was that Uwe's products are a
and would still be so at double the price. Quit whining already. You were
wrong then
and you are wrong again now.

Yet you continue to back-stab Uwe, months later.

I've found Uwe Ross to be rather awkward and cantankerous in my
dealings with him. His USB cable costs a fortune yet contains a dongle
which provides the user with no functionality but which is only of
interest to *him* since it helps to reduce piracy. Yet it is the
honest users who find themselves paying *him* (and he *does* make a
profit on these cables), for the dongle that only he really wants. If
you try to discuss topics such as these on the VAG-COM mailing list,
you quickly find out that he's the moderator of the group as your
posts start to go missing.

Anyhow, with that off my chest, to answer the question, USB-serial
converters tend not to work, but PCMCIA-serial cards *tend to* work.
I've got a "Socket", one, very much like this:

< <http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6742328814>

which works fine for me. I obviously can't guarantee that it'll work
for you though.

Anyone ever fitted cruise to their B5 S4? There's a couple of garages

that do it in the UK charging #175 or so. The cost of the parts seem

to be not far short of that so I figure it's not that tricky to do?

The problem is, it's awkward for me to get the car to these garages,

so if it's not too tricky I'd give it a go myself.

Anyone know of any resources?
