Is there a VADIS code that will sound the horn when I set the alarm (i.e. lock the car)? My wife's Liberty does this and I think it is a very convenient feature. Please advise. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

and whats even worse is that dealers are in no way consistent with their pricing for VADIS or VIDA downloads. its just a transfer of data and they want to charge a ridiculous price for it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">
