    new stalk and someone to code it in for you

    you wont need a steering wheel control module as they all do DIS but if you want cruise too then you may have to look at upgrading the steering wheel module too

    What you're after is referred to as the 'Driver Information System' (DIS). You would require the stalk as you've said, but once installed it will need to be enabled with VCDS software.

    I believe full DIS ('full' as opposed to the basic just 'miles remaining') when enabled from the factory came with a low screen wash warning, so a pin on the blue dash plug needs earthing or you will constantly be notified that your screen wash is low.

    At least earthing the pin is the easy option, you could alternatively install the screen wash sensor and run the cables back though the car, but this is obviously a lot of work for a feature most of us don't need (as car enthusiasts who regularly check levels anyway ).

    Here's the thread where I got this information: DIS and Cruise - Done

    And as you probably don't have VCDS, here's a map of members that do who you could contact and see if they'll be able to help you out: VCDS (formerly VAG-COM) forum
