    That you can manually move them? I dont mean pull them off the screen, but make them sweep the screen, by hand?

    I only just found out today when washing the car - it's very useful....

    Do you mean when they are in 'service' mode or do you mean that when you have left them on a 'wipe' setting and turned off the ignition that you can move the blades across the screen by hand?
     
  4. how do you get it in wash mode again ?

    Turn on the ignition, turn off the ignition, take key out, turn on wipers.

    They should move 1/2 way and stop.....

    The big round thing inside makes the car turn in different directions (try looking just in front of all the pretty little clocks if you're struggling to find it).

    There is a kind of launch control though... hold the brake with it in D/S/M, floor it, and let go of the brake 1/2 second later. Best with ESP off, but I dont think it does the gearbox internals any good. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    well ill tell you all, It Enters A.A.D.M.P

    which means


    Audi's Advanced Drift Mode Program.

    All the power is instantly taken to the rear wheels, the front wheels enter Neutral Mode.
    If you Power down on the throttle the back end sways from side to side.
    The engine goes into S.M.M (super map mode) with over 300 BHP instantly powering just the rear wheels.

    If anyone has seen the New Dukes of Hazzard you will know how it handles round the roundabouts /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif


    Now wouldn't that be good if it were true ! LOL !!

    Are you saying that they've got rid of the real launch control? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    i.e. ESP off, Sport mode, selected, left foot on brake, rightfoot floored (revs should not red line but told and 5.5krpm) and then when you come off the brake it flies.

    It's still there isn't it? It used to be as I surprised the boke from the dealership when I tested it. He had no idea! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

    Depends on the model - Launch Control only there on the 6 cylinder models.

    Although there was a guy here from outside the UK with a TDi that had it....

    I wonder if there is a way to turn it on and off with VAGcom?
