    Also I dont have the standard DIS for my car either, would I still be able to install the Enhanced DIS in and get the standard readouts (fuel consumption etc).

    I've got the same age/spec a3 as you, and I've been told that mine hasn't got the CAN bus.
    What's an Enhanced DIS?

    It won't have a CAN-BUS.

    Only the 8P chassis onwards do.

    the 8l has the odb11 serial port. Im not sure when the enhanced dis came in.

    The serial port is under the dash by the drivers door

    Enhanced DIS replaces the standard DIS, shows more information like boost pressure, engin oil temp.

    It is not compatable with CAN-BUS.

    http://www.amtuning.com.au/enhanced_dis.html
    Here is a link

    My problem is that my car doesent have DIS and I would really like to add it.

    Has anyone done this?

    I was thinking the the Enhanced DIS might be cheaper.

    That Enhanced DIS/FIS thing has been around for donkeys, and only fits pre facelift and early facelift S3's from what I remember.

    later facelift s3's are supposed to come with a hybrid CAN bus system, but only for the dash cluster, meaning that the FIS wont work with it.

    The CAN version of the FIS has been "in development" for many years, so i cant see it ever coming out. Oh, and it doenst work with Navi+ equipped cars either. shame.

    heres some more links to the product:

    If my car doesn't have DIS is there anyway of adding it, if so please explane what would need to be done.

    I could get a instrement cluster from the wreckers that has DIS.
