Hi Jon,

Thanx for the kind response. The units coming in the field now will tell us if we missed something. If so, it can be easily corrected by downloading new firmware (unless something in the hardware is wrong, which I hope is not the case).

This is also goodness, since such a resistor must be a discrete value and is unlikely to be the "best" value, even when new.
That is true in case of the NTK L1H1. It uses E24 series resistors. In case of the Bosch, that is not true. The Bosch resistor is a thin-film resistor element that is laser-trimmed in the factory to the correct value, not in discrete steps.

Does your meter's sensor cable still use the sensor's connector, anyhow, for ease of attachment to the meter's cable, or does one just cut off the sensor's connector?
The sensor cable comes with the correct mating connector for the VW sensor attached, so it's just plug-and-play and you could buy a replacement sensor from your nearest VW dealer.

The questions and responses from this list and others are continuously collected and will be put in the FAQ. As you can imagine, our marketing and sales types are busier than a one-armed juggler right now and so updates to the web-site take a back-seat.
