      Ahoy mate.
      Looks like you are the most recent guardian angel with regards to the 3.2 A3 software issue.
      I desperately am in need of help- the only challenge is that I'm in the southern hemisphere ;)

      Could you perhaps help with the .bin file for the correct software version?

      Thanks in advance.

      i saw your post about the K1S dash cam unit and I'm now looking at getting one but I've read a lot of bad reviews online about them in the long run. i was wondering if you've had any problems with yours?

        Hey!

        The only issue I have really had was with the battery. My camera was running 24/7 and the battery would get hot and eventually swelled up. It would also not act as a "float" during the Start/Stop engine crank. Changed it out for a GoPro Hero 2 battery and has been good since. Needs a fast memory card also, very fast! I am using a 128gb Lexar 633x.

        Hope this helps!

      Thanks DJAlix, I really appreciate you seeing me at short notice before you went away. I've done a few hundred miles in the A3 since you updated my ECU software and as well as the dramatic improvement in running I think it has improved MPG a fraction too. Thanks very much for the other tips and advice you gave me whilst the software updated. Such good value I almost can't believe it.

      thank you for the answer
      I haven that 29 byte
      I then add the 30 byte without problems ?

        To be honest I am not sure as I have never had a car with 29bytes visit me for any works.

        As long as you backup your original long coding you should be able to revert. I would try adding byte 30 first and if it is accepted change 28 and 29.

        I have a 63 plate 8V with 30 bytes and byte 30 was 08 from the factory. My car has S-Tronic.

      Hi DJAlix, Can you help with fault codes scan/clear as well as activating needle sweep and a couple other bits on my B8? I’m based in North London so pretty easy to meet. Many thanks

      Hello, for some reason I can't private message you.

      Did you have any idea on how to get the automatic time syncing working on a retrofitted MMI 3g+ in an A5?

      I assume it is just some coding?

      Any help would be great.

      Cheers,

        Hey there! The forum moderators are currently reconfiguring / testing my account so PM's might not be working for me. As posted on the VCDS thread, I am doing some digging on this one. Will let you know what I find.
