    From the hand book:-

    Ignition on, pull right button on speedo, SERVICE shows. Pull it again and hold until SERVICE IN ----KM---DAYS is shown. Pull the button again within 5 seconds.

    VCDS will do it easily if you are failing to do it with the buttons.

    Take it back to the independent for them to finish the job off.

    A cable which plugs into your car and accesses all the electronic modules so they can be set and/or re-programmed.

    It is specifically used for VAG vehicles and many members on here own one.

    The software is downloaded from the RossTech website (the software developers and licencing authority) and the info is decoded by the chip/s in the plug at the car end of the cable.

    About £250 if you.re interested in buying one !

    true, however as you can see from my post frequency i hardly ever come on aside from to lurk and admire some of the cars, so to be honest i had no idea you could do that!

    cheers.
