I could swear that the electronic Manuals are for people that want to frig
with their computer, not fix a car. Registration process was uphill both
ways underwater, other than that, it was okay.
The electronic manual is pretty much a necessity for investigating DTC's
(diagnostic trouble codes) so if you have VCDS (vag-com) you're pretty much
joined at the hip to the damn thing. I can't imagine working flat rate and
having to piss away so much time on a computer as opposed to just looking it
up in an index in a paper book.
