    Needle Sweep on S3

    Hi I have just purchased a S3 on a 07 plate, and I was wondering if the needle sweep could be activated on it?
    I had a test drive in a 57 plate one and that did it as soon a you turned the key, the 57 plate one did have a white DIS, where as mine has red (not sure if this has any bearing on the matter)

    I'm a newbie so please go easy on me

    Thanks,

    Daz.

    unfortunately it does have a bearing lol
    the needle sweep is only a feature on the white S3 cluster and no other (on the A3 chassis) which is a pain as it means a whole new cluster to get it

    The white dis was retrofitted on a 57 plate tbh, I cant recall when it came in, but was around 07-08 onwards, need to get vcds on the car to see if its possible in coding.

    I have the needle sweep on my 57 plate, and I have the red dis, not the White dis.

    I'm pretty sure you can enable/disable it in vcds, but perhaps you need a 57 plate onwards to do it?

    Get your vag on it mate, see if it accepts coding & then you'll know.

    My july '07 S3 with red DIS does the sweep...
    2007 S3 - Swivelly headlights, magic foldy mirrors, two tone warm cow seats, beepy reverse, lazy motorway button, well good talky radio with telly & map, loads of lights inside, squished steering wheel, Milltek cat-back loud bits.

    I take it because there is a long coding helper here in the engine:



    and not in instruments:



    that I cannot activate needle sweep?

    An output test on Instrument Cluster gives you needle sweep, though not exactly what you're all after... Still cool though

    Thanks, for the help guys. It went in to the dealer today to have iPod connection fitted, and I asked them if they could do it, was told by the dealer (Crewe Audi) that my software on the car is too old, and that it only come into place in 2009. Is there anyway of updating the software? What differences are there?
    Thanks,

    Daz.

    There is no mention in the pop up of needle sweep.

    I guess mine is too old.

    Well they're talking crap given reports by 07 owners on here already with on red dis, need to get vcds on there to see if possible to code.

    If you have no adaptation channel there for it, then time to fit a white dis.

    I barely even notice the needle sweep anymore. It was very cool at first, though.

    First time I saw it was on a Subaru Liberty (Legacy) about 7-8 years ago.
