    Hi, first post on here, yesterday I purchased a 53plate 2.0 tdi se, it drives spot on & was a joy to drive home from Bristol. Only problem I have is that there is no dis coming on in the middle of my dash & no option to browse the OBC on the wiper stalk. Although it has cruise control fitted, am I right in thinking I will need to buy new clocks along with a compatible wiper stalk & get it all programmed before I can have the dis working?? Or do I just need a new stalk that can be fitted? Any help of anyone local would be much appreciated or does anyone know of anywhere that does it, I am in South Wales. Many thanks.

    Post a pic of your instrument panel with the ignition on.

    Get a stalk from a A3, nothing else to avoid compatibility issues.

    NHN can do the install ;)

    New cluster time!

    You can get a 'fixed' dis but you simply have nothing. Send NHN a PM.

    You have no DIS whatsoever, you need a whole new cluster plus all the immo coding etc.

    PM NHN and he'll tell you the price!!

    I have the later dash and fitted the stalk myself. Dannykn9 was an absolute star and went well above just another person on the forum, to help me code my stalk.These people will help you, have patience.

    Ok cheers, I am a bit impatient, but not having the obc controls is really getting on my tits!!! Just wondering where NHN is from as I'm in South Wales & don't really want to travel for miles to get it all sorted. Also wana mention that I got a set of 18 rs8 alloys in Matt black with tyres off eBay for £120, well chuffed & can't wait to see what it looks like with them on 2moro.

    Do a VCDS search in the forum and it will show you the closest person that can do the coding. Send them a pm and offer a few beer tokens and I'm sure they will be happy to help!!

    Also I spoke to the auto electrician in my local garage who has vagcom about getting new clocks & wiper stalk & coding it, but he reckons that's a very expensive way of doing it & I'd be better off part exing my a3 for one with better spec.

    You need vcds which is software on a laptop and a lead and you scan the car then it comes back with infoo if you have the right steering wheel controller.

    If you go to the section at the top of the forum titled forum search and type in VCDS user map it should bring up a map of the uk with all the people that have VCDS to do coding with.

    hopefully a kind person will help you. They will need to scan your car, see what speedo cluster, stalk and controller you have and if compatible to enable you to have DIS. If not they can they advise what you will need to get the full DIS option.

    Hope this helps
