    Tourist Mode / left hand drive switchover on 2012 Xenon Plus Headlights

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience setting 'tourist mode' for driving abroad on new 2012 A3 Sportbacks with Xenon Plus lights? I have followed many different guides and where I should be able to 'activate left/right hand drive switchover' in VCDS, I get 'Unknown' in the stored value field, rather than 'active' or 'not active'



    Apparently RossTech have had some issues with the new Xenon controllers (8X0-907-357C - I emailed them), and my car is left hand drive, but the option is still there in VCDS 11.11.2 (newest version.)

    If anyone has found a way to set this up using VCDS and not going to Audi with the newest controller version, I would really appreciate some help! I have been talking to Dave (h5djr) and hopefully we will be able to resolve it, but if anyone else has some information, that would be great!

    Thanks a lot, and all the best,
    Mike.

    P.S. Does any one else's VCDS 11.11.2 look like that, as I've seen it look very different where you can actually select the channel and it's not a drop down menu! :S

    There's some odd 'stuff' in latest version. I'm sure I noted for xenon calibration it's got my car defaulted to 00013 which VCDS lists as A3 Cabrio, not A3 3dr Quattro....

    Yeah that was one of the quirks we were discussing mate on the phone that time, how come it wont accept coding for A3, but will do cab, even vas at the dealer wouldnt code A3, go figure.
