All VW dealers have access to an official list of VW Rabbits in transit as they are shipped from Germany to U.S. dealers. For each car, the list specifies the VIN number, delivery date, name of dealer receiving the car, and options - 2dr or 4dr, AT or 5-speed, color, etc. I want to get web access to this list, so I can find a dealer in the Seattle area that is scheduled to receive the car I want. Thus far, I've been jerked around by dealers who promise to get a Rabbit allocated to another dealer, but the other dealer won't do this. So, I want to get direct access to the official list. Please provide the link to this list and any password required. All suggestions welcome.

It is highly unlikely that this type of information is acquired via "web access". The software and access is probably only available at the VW dealerships with their custom company computers. But, I have bought a few vehicles by the method you are describing. If you are not having success at a particular dealership, just keep calling around to ones in your area until you find one that has good customer service. If you are willing to put a $500 to $1000 deposit on an exact vehicle (VIN already or not) most dealerships will reserve it for you before its even built. Just tell the dealership exactly the model, colors, engine, transmissions, etc.. that you want, and they should be able to request one from the factory. You may have to wait several months to get the exact vehicle you are looking for, but it is usually well worth the wait to get it the way that you want it! You will, after all, be driving it for at least a few years. Unfortunately, by using this method to buy your car, the dealer will probably be less willing to give you a really good deal. Just save a few more pennies and get the 2007 R32 (just my favorite little VW).
