    We got it, 02 plate - A4 B6 2.5tdi Quattro Avant

    Howdy fellow Audi-ists

    Well, picked it up late last night, all we can say is diesels have no right to go like that

    Done the first mods tonight, being to set the alarm to chirp, speed locking & sequential unlock. Hey, diagnostics are fun

    Placed an order tonight for our RNS-E & adapter looms, so there comes another project.

    In terms of the DIS, following my earlier post & me being a numpty, the car does indeed have DIS, but just doesn't have the OBC for mpg etc. Hopefully having cruise already it will be a case of retrofit the stalk only.

    It is booked into Audi on saturday for a recall, Plenum Chamber clean out, ooeeer misses!!

    Heyho, so cheers for the welcomes peeps, let the mods start....NOW!!.....Woohoo

    Shane, (York)

    Not vagcom, but similar. Product called Launch X431 which does all vehicle diagnostics etc

    If your local, your welcome to pop over to have a fettle.

    Cheers for the welcome, although we've just come from an all singing fire breathing (NOT!!) slug of a Vauxhall Vectra 2.0 Di<S>

    Cheers again

    Hiya guys,

    Vinesh, check this page out I found - http://www.wak-tt.com/vagcom/vagcomclcoding.htm . It gives you a step by step on doing the changes. Unfortunately, I can't tell you exactly as I don't have Vagcom, rather a full obd diagnostics system. Just make sure you note your original coding down before you change anything.

    You will need the calculator that Simon kindly posted also.

    Cheers

    Shane

    Thats the plan. Just need to lay my hands on one. Did a search on the net last night, but to no avail.

    Does anyone have any good outlets, apart from dealers, to buy these things. I know many moons ago, when I used to have an old 1.9 5 pop Coupe, we used to have a backstreet vag parts shop who could get anything.

    Cheers peeps

    Hi guys

    jase0851 - All A4's with the multi-display in the dash will run DIS. From what I gather, because I have cruise already, my control module should be compatible, hence I only need the stalk & then a quick reprogram. If a new comp is required, Audi quoted me 120.

    I'm still learning my way round the different coding's etc, but hey, in at the deep end Have diagnostics - will fix!!

    Going to order my stalk on saturday from main dealer, came out at 73.16 inc, (less a bit for trade), but it's a special order item, so who knows how long till it gets here.

    I'll keep ya all posted.

    Shane, (york)

    I prefer the alarm to be set without a "chirp" mainly cos it would completely p*ss my neighbours off when i come home late from work....

    I do like the idea of being able to set the Central door locking to autolock at 10 or 15mph, and unlocjk when I take the key out of the ignition though...

    So, is your Audi A4 Avant Quattro a sport or SE ?

    Hiya JohnboyC

    To be honest, the chirp is hardly audible. Not intrusive like any aftermarket brand of alarm, but it's nice to know you've set it.

    The autolock is more safety for our lass, who will be driving this the most . We have had this on all our cars, seeing as everyone has had a Clifford of some type, but these were triggered by RPM, not speed. I will probably get round to slapping a Clifford on this beast with remote engine start of course

    Our car is just an SE, but I am going to slap as many extras on as possible. One of the major parts I can't find any info on is retro fitting rear electric windows. I would of thought the convenience module in the car would run it, same as VW's, but i need to do some checking yet.

    Cheers peeps,

    Shane, (York)
