as a matter of fact it does
anything that is not bought from ross tech and cheaper than 350£ or so is counterfeit I guess ?
then what ? I just bought one from ross tech because I use mine a lot but before that I had many cheap cables that worker perfectly. never had issue with any of them.
As far the the rear DRLs are concerned, Audi do not activate them for the UK because they are not required by law. In Scandinavian countries and some parts of the USA they are required by law and Audi activate them for cars being sold into those countries.
You can do a lot more now with the current MMI set-up that, in the past, required the use of VCDS. The VAS system that dealers use is not the same as VCDS although they can both do some of the same things but the dealers VAS system costs £,000s.
I had a pm yesterday quoting 259 but apparently there's an offer on for asn users so u want me to forward the pm on @steviefleming
Thanks .....that might be an idea.
My local VW Audi specialist done some VCDS stuff for me for £30 on the S5 , but I just thought buying one maybe cheaper and more flexible in the long run.
On the S5 I got him to ;
Switch the LEDs on at the back
Switch on the remote locking beep
Switch off the seat belt beeper
Switch on the ability to be able to move the car without having to have the drivers seat belt on.
Turned off the front LED 'wink' when you indicate ( so it stays bright all the time )
Turn up the brightness of the front LEDs ( when you turn on the full headlights , I think they dim to around 15-20% , so I asked him to turn them up to 60% I think)
Turn off the wiper after swipe when you clean the windscreen
Switched on adaptive brake lighting ( although I've not been able to really see the effects ! )
i think DRLs are brilliant, especially on sunny days when its difficult to see cars sometimes because of sun glare. rears would help too i think if you're traveling toward the sun. (big fan of LEDs if you haven't guessed by now) the interior of my golf looks like the sun. no wait, i tell a lie, the sun isn't as bright.
Once you have done it post a vid
I don't know how the VCDS works but my cousin does, and he has the software and cable etc, so was wondering if anyone can tell me how to switch off the start / stop function by default on my S3?
It's a pain in the ass having the manually switch it off every time I get in the car.
I can't check needle sweep as the S3 does it as standard.
Info on needle sweep is on this thread:
I've activated it on mine and posted a video on page 2
Good info on here, will hopefully add the display for standard rear sensors soon
Sat in my car now with the laptop and VCDS (connected to net with Audi Connect :) ). Just tried 40168 on 03 ABS, while it does accept the code, when you try to do any adaptions, it still say security access required. No TPMS yet! :(

Looks like its not the correct security code after all. Hopefully RT will get it soon :)
As soon as the codes are known for the central control module so the ACC and lane assist can be adjusted I'll be buying VCDS, no question. Our golf could do with a DSG adaption running too.
Is there a list of what the modules are and they control anywhere and which codes are known right now?
Ive got VCDS and will be having a play when i get mine!
I'm so tempted to do this but I am really worried about any traces of this voiding my warranty, could anyone confirm that this wont be a problem?
It definitely is not
