    Misfire detection on VCDS?

    Is there a way of using VCDS to log a misfire or similar as I suspect a may have either a faulty coil or ignition amp.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I have tried this numerous times and it doesnt seem to bring up what i need?

    I get this - (obviously snapshot taken without engine running)

    Can you post a step by step method by any chance as this VAG COM thing baffles me sometimes.

    I may just purchase it off eBay. Seen a few used genuine ones for £55 which seems ok to me!
