    I'm experimenting with TPMS via VCDS on 8V.
    As such, it's not complete, but details are here:
    Enabling TPMS for A3 S3 8V *Experimental*

    To keep this thread tidy, best to keep the discussions on the thread linked above, if you wish to partake in the experiment.

    Does the latest S3 have needle sweep or does it need to be activated in vagcom?

    I've got a cable I used on the TT 4 years ago, I guess I'll need new software for the S3 then.

    Yes, but light up when ignition turned on. It's a nice touch

    Dealer should do that for you, in going to ask mine to be done before / during pickup.

    My dealer did mine for me during an "Aftersales Evening" at the garage. It required connection via the OBD socket to the dealer's computer system and then it was activate via the an internet connection to Audi AG. Took about 10 minutes in total. The master tech who did it said this is how most things on the new A3 are activated.

    My dealer enabled mine when I picked the car up - took 10 mins, including the drive to and from the workshop.

    My dealer is a hundred or so miles away (carfile.net purchase) and I have VCDS so would like to do iut myself It will only be a bit somewhere in the rom.

    are you referring to just the standard ACC indictors and displays, or a different "hidden" menu?

    You can change the default distance. By default, it is on 3. I'd like to be able to set it to 2...

    Yes, but the £1200 I saved over my local dealer more than makes up for the fact I can't set the default ACC distance....

    Adaptive Cruise Control. Modulates your speed up to the maximum you set. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKBCGZn3icY

    Yes, it is that good.

    No. You have to order it unfortunately.

    If you do a lot of stop/start driving or following cars on A/B roads and you can alter your order - do it. It works incredibly well with s-tronic

    Never heard of the system in the Mexican versions to be honest, and unfurtunately can't order it, as my car is already on the dealership. It's just a matter that I get off this plattform on wednesday (I work offshore for the oil industry) and sign the papers.

    I'll be presenting it soon.

    Thanks.

    thanks for taking the time to post. Might group them together in relation to which part they effect the car such as the DRL / Xenon

    You are missing a few other trivial adjustments like the auto dipping mirror and oil temp.

    Hi guys, there's a few mods I would like to do (and there is beer tokens for whoever is in the South East).

    Has Video in Motion been unlocked for the tech pack high?

    Video in Motion is not sanctioned by Ross-Tech.

    You have to use an alternative tool. Do a search on this forum, there are plenty of heated posts and threads on this subject.

    That's fine, wasn't asking if it was justified, just if it was possible.

    As veeeight said, you can't activate Video In Motion (VIM) using VCDS.

    I have the tool to activate VIM for the Audi A3 (8V) and Golf Mk7, but I'm based in Aberdeen.

    Thanks for the reply. It seems that it's a full reflash of the MMI at the moment? I'm certainly not paying £80 for the privilege!

    Has anybody had their car serviced after changing the settings? Rumour I heard is that the car is plugged in and 'reset' to the standard UK spec settings.

    I'm looking to add a rear view camera to my A3. Does anyone know how the VCDS steps to activate the rear view display when the car is shifted to reverse?
