    Hill hold assist

    Hi all
    is hill hold assist a retrofit option for the b8?
    Is it just a case of installing the right switch and programming?
    Is there any guides anywhere to help do this ?
    cheers
    john

    Is this just the auto hand brake release when you pull away?

    No, it's a different switch which makes the car hold when stationary once engaged you don't have to keep pressing it like the normal hand brake switch

    You also need to run wiring from the ABS module in engine bay to the new switch in the centre console.
