    Audi/VW VAGCOM Question

    Is this a stupid question or could i take my Audi to a VW dealer instead of an Audi dealer to have my new instrument cluster coded in?

    No not a stupid question mate, quite a sensible one really. In theory you would think VW could do as VW/Audi/Seat and Skoda all use VAS, but I believe that different makes have slightly different coding solutions.

    I know you can take your Audi to VW for servicing, belt changes etc as I rang for prices before. But saying that my local Audi (Chingford) will not take in VW cars!!??

    Best bet mate, is to phone your local VW dealer and ask.
    Let us know, as I am sure a few others here would be interested.

    There is no problem to take your Audi to VW dealer for instrument cluster coded. You can take your car to them without any hesitation.

    Just been in to my local VW dealer and they said that they can do service work etc, but they don't have access to the Audi side of things when it comes to the immobiliser coding, this might be just specifically for the instrument cluster swap, they may be able to do other work with VAGCOM but as far as the instrument cluster goes its a no go.
