    Question Best Mods & VCDS Tweeks

    Hi All!

    What are the best VCDS unlocks or tweeks?
    Defo want to do the one button press all doors unlock and enable tyre deflation (if possible?)

    Whats the first mods or desirable mods I should consider doing?

    I've been thinking so far:
    K&N (or similar) Air Induction Kit
    Carbon Fibre Boot Lip Spolier
    Carbon Fibre Wrapped Window Pillars
    S4 Brushed Aluminium Door Mirror Covers
    Tint the Rear Windows
    Black Edition Grille or RS5 Grille
    Piano Black Interior Trim
    Rear LED Lights (if it doesnt have them)
    Paint Brake Calipers Red and attach Audi Logo stickers
    Rear Parking sensors (if it doesnt have them - maybe front as well)
    Rear Seat Covers (so wee one doesn't dirty seats!!! lol)
    And eventually, Audi Dynamik Alloys


    Does anybody know where the Piano Black Interior Trim can be purchased from?

    Have to admit I have it on.

    The lap timer seems like a gimmick but it's the only way to see the oil temp!

    Thats a useful link. Can you not take your car into a dealer and ask them to turn on the bits you want...?
    In my personal opinion

    You don't know what can be done on a B8 but you don't want to look at the thread that shows you?

    The first post lists them all. Perhaps it's just a bit too easy?

    Mine says the same .... but then when she's sitting in the car waiting to collect the kiddy from school and can have the aux ventilation running suddenly it's a good idea

    oh and the mirror dip

    ... and beep on lock

    ...etc etc

    We couldn't get the beep to lock option, battery indicator or the hidden menu (whatever it does?!!!)
    So what does the Aux ventilation do?
    I got the needle sweep and lap timer activated.
    I have to give a big thanks to Brodster as well! Top Bloke!!!

    How to do it and what it does is here : AudiEnthusiasts Vag Com

    but without hidden menu you're very limited : AudiEnthusiasts Vag Com

    To be honest if you're struggling to get that going perhaps you shouldn't be playing in there coz you can do damage.

    I wasn't doing any tweeks. I had somebody alot more knowledgeable than me doing it. I wouldn't go near the bootloader. But what exactly does the hidden menu do?

    It's basically the engineering menu. Did you click on the second link? In there it shows some screen shots. In there when you make changes you have to be careful as unlike VCDS there's no logging and hence roll back is down to you knowing how it was set.
