12/19/11 VW spoke with Mr. Waldman and explained that a new shipment of upgraded VAS 6150Bs would be available by late January on a first-come, first-serve basis and suggested that he place an order at his earliest convenience in order to get one when they arrive. 11/22/11 Suggested checking with local scan tool supplier for an aftermarket alternative that will interface with a VW system. Also referred to Equipment and Tool Institute for additional information that may be available on this issue.
