Source?If you like being able to do things with VCDS, you may not want to buy one of these anytime soon. They are reputed to have a "Security Gateway" that blocks all diagnostic "write access" (including even the clearing of fault codes!) unless the tool/shop doing the work has the credentials to obtain a cryptographic certificate to allow such access from VWAG's server.

Huh ....I Wonder WHY?
