    Let me re-phrase: By default, VCDS shows every fault code stored in a module, whether the module has decided it's significant yet or not. The dealers' tool doesn't do that, at least not under all circumstances.

    I'll also point out that there have been plenty of real problems with those gear selectors. But given that you have a 6-year warranty, I wouldn't worry about it too much yet. If/when it shows up as a fault that the module considers significant (and I bet at some point it will), then let VW deal with it.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Then this is a very rare compliment to a such straight shooter! I really appreciate your input and I hope anyone that is looking for this kind of valuable information.

    i just got started messing around with ODIS 4.4.10 to look into programmming some ODIS specific items like lane assist, acc, component protection, etc. my opinion thus far it is not all that great. at minimum i certainly much now appreciate the speed and simplicity of VCDS that much more and will continue to use it as my primary tool if not just for productivity. i can start, diagnose and fix problems in VCDS (and fill up a tank of gas), before ODIS gets past the startup screen...
