Uwe Ross scan tools

I bought the RS232 <-> ISO9141 adapter from Ross ages ago when he
first started making them. At that time he had not published his
VAG-COM software. I used it with Baumtools VWTOOL but it's a bit flakely
on the comms side, VAG-COM is much more stable but not (yet) as fully
featured but Ross is working on it (in between making cables!). I don't
think Baumtools still offer their software via the web now that there
are so many sources for the above ISO9141 cable.

Given the cars you have I would say that the VAG-COM software/cable and
Bentley CDROM are a must if you're considering any DIY maintenance.
