VAG Com needed to add factory BT to VW Golf?

So I am thinking about adding an OEM BT kit to my Golf, but as I understand it, it also involves re-programming the gateway using a VAG com programmer (which costs an additional $450)… Was not planning to buy one of these too ? :aiyo:

If really needed I guess I should also get an MDI upgrade at the same time…

Any tweakers out there done this upgrade themselves and got a VAG ?
