I have decided to take the next step, as far as the level of work that I
will do on my 2000 Jetta TDI, and purchase VAG-COM. On the Ross Tech site,
they recommend purchasing a Bentley "Official Factory Repair Manual" instead
of a Bentley "Service Manual" as the factory repair manual has scan tool
procedures and the service manual doesn't. The factory repair manual in on
CD and Ross Tech sells it for $70. I don't have a manual yet and need one
anyway - with or without VAG-COM. My questions are:
Does a VAG-COM newbie need the scan tool procedures in the repair manual?
Is it practical to use a CD "Manual" as opposed to a printed manual? Would
you simply print the portion of the manual that relates to what you are
working on and take it to the car with you?
Any other comments or advise is welcome.
