Hey guys

Well tomorrow is going to be a big day for me. I am running up north about an hour to lakeshore wheel and tire to pick up my 18" b5 rs4 rims that I have wanted ever since I bought the car 6 months ago, as well as some summer tires. I'll post some pics of new rims tomorrow as well as my buff and detail job I plan to do. Mainly though I wanted to ask you guys about something else.

I will be meeting up with a man tomorrow at his house who has a VAG-COM and seems like he knows what to do and everything, but I want to know what sweet tips / tricks should I do to my car by using the VAG-COM. I want to do the mod where you can hold down the unlock/lock buttons on your key fob to open/close the windows, but are there any other mods that I should do as well? He is kindly doing this for free, so I want to be quick and hassle-free, as well as not look completely oblivious to him as to how to do the mods and seem somewhat of a knowledgable audi owner. (which I am [:D])

--> I am also sure that there is a master thread out there that covers many mods/tricks with VAG but I cant seem to find one. O btw I have a 2001 2.8L

Any input on which mods/tricks to do and how to do them or if you guys have a master page of VAG mods/tricks then that would be very helpful as well. Thanks in advance guys.

Does vagcom only work for one car? I see their new WiFi one and there's an option for personal 10 vins or unlimited Vin #s so my question is for the regular non WiFi one does it matter how many cars you hook up? Or can you only hook your one car..

You can buy an unlimited or a 10 VIN license version - I don't see a one license version ??
