    A few vcds tweaks

    Just got my cable from Nigel, great service. Vcds is brilliant!

    So on my A3 8p I have;

    Enabled alarm chip on arming
    Set the rear fogs as tail tights
    Set comfort closing by remote for the windows
    Adjusted my wildly inaccurate fuel computer
    Enabled speed readout on my radio
    Increased tail light brightness by a few percent
    Set tear drop wipe for rear wiper
    Found out my car has an auxiliary heater!
    Fine tuned the cam timing belt
    Adjusted and smoothed my engine tick over

    Probably a few other things too that I've forgotten!

    A fantastic piece of kit, well worth getting for anyone handy with cars.

    Anyone got any other little jems this software can do?

    Gary

    No it was already there and enabled. Just didn't know they had one! Guess they are probably standard on the diesels.

    It's where after you have turned off the rear wiper it delays the last wipe for a few seconds to catch any dribbles.

    Can you tell me how to:

    Enable speed readout on my radio
    Fine tuned the cam timing belt (I've turned RPM down on my engine and still got the shaky idle)

    Also I was wondering if it was possible to make it so windows auto close when locking the door?
