Resetting the computer is easy. Just disconnect the battery. Reprogramming the computer afterwards is the expensive thing. To the best of my knowledge the only way to reprogram your computer is to take it to a VW Authorized Dealer. Normally the vehicle will run if you reset the computer, but emissions, alarm setting, radio can be negatively effected by not reprogrammed.
