I’ve always thought that the Auto Hill Assist (or whatever it’s called) was a bit lazy on my S3. It seemed to drag the brake a bit too long, causing jumpy set-offs and creaky brakes on hills. No doubt it was slowing my 0-60 as well, hehe.
Anyway after a bit of digging with VCDS. There is an option in the Mk60 ABS module for adjusting how much revs it needs before the assist will turn off, Light, Normal, or Heavy. Just changed mine to light and it’s so much better now, much smoother to set off on hills etc.
It’s under ABS (03) Module, Adaptations (or basis settings, can’t fully remember now!), Hill Hold Control, Values can be 1, 2 or 3 (light, normal or heavy). VCDS 11 Beta has labels for it.
Hope it helps!
