    Have a read of this thread, does seem to confirm what you say and NHN says, and so far from what I can see there is no fix yet

    the thing is that apparently there is a fix for the A5/S5: http://www.geocities.com/a6retrofit/...5vagcodes.html about half way down there is coding for the drl's but that doesnt work. when i plug vag-com on the car on the coding there is a option saying to dimm the DRL's and by a certain % i have disabbled it so it would dimm but it still does it. im completly lost.

    Have you tried updating your VCDS to latest 805.2 as this would show the latest features to code where as 704.1 is fairly old.

    Pretty much answered your own question there mate I should think. As Nigel says update to the latest version which will have label file support for your newer car.

    Once you have that installed post up an Autoscan for your car so we can have a look and if that fails you can contact Ross Tech directly for help.

    Antonio, the one you're using is a cheapy of ebay, 704.1 is counterfeit, you risk on your 30k car a cheap cable seems little silly.

    If you want authentic you have 2 options, micro can which only does like A3, Golf 5 chassis, not others or get Hex Can USB which is best option, yes more money but it can connect to pretty much any VAG car, so handy if you have a friend/family who needs help or you change VAG cars.

    I was doing a group buy for 228.75 which is 30 cheaper than rrp, but had little responce once price was confirmed given exchange rates, if I can get 10 people then I'll do the deal, do you want to buy one? Cause might be able to muster 10 now as I think I know 7 already.

    You can compare interfaces here - http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/interfaces.html

    The Hex & CAN is the ideal one to go for really.

    Is 228.75 fully inclusive or is there postage on top?

    Also, is that price for the HEX & CAN option?

    If it's 228.75 all in for the HEX & CAN option then count me in - I'm definitely in for that price
