Default Oil Pressure

Is it possible to see the engines oil pressure with a VCDS scan?

$100K+ car and no way to see the engines oil pressure.... I've got an engine tick and I'd like to confirm that there is proper oil pressure there...

You have to tee in a gauge at the pressure switch port or other access point.
