    Don't quote me on this, but I think the brightness of the LED's is only when you have your dip on, when just DRL the brightness stays the same as set by Audi.

    The lap timer also shows the temp of the oil etc, which is just nice to see. If its possible why not switch it on! :)

    On the radio control unit, you have the option of the Audi A4 8K to activate the battery indicator for the radio Concert / Symphony.

    The following coding is used:

    1. Select STG 56 (Radio)
    2. STG adjustment -> function 10
    3. Channel 39
    4. Increase value by +16

    Managed to get everything working I wanted, except mirror tilt when reversing. I don't have module 76, could this be why? I thought it was suppose to work on all?

    Bit 4 and 2 set to 1
