    It was an £85 option on all standard models, and came standard on all SE, Sport, S Line & S3 models.

    What model is your A3? If you have an AC button on your heater controls (if you don't have full climate control) it can be enabled in the cluster software

    My older A3 was a 2006 'Special Edition' (different to an SE) - kind of one up from a Standard so had the standard heater controls but also a tiny 'AC' button on them too. This made it possible to do the software mod. If you don't have that then I don't think its possible. Sorry

    This is A3 8P. Has xenon lights, DSG, rear parking sensors, cruise control, ESP. No multifunctional steering wheel. Seems like nothing more from car electronics. On instrument cluster it has red display which showing radio and big indicator if low fuel or washing liquid. I have tried to change number 2 to 4 in coding of group 16 or 17 as described in one manual of this forum. No changes.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1368096476.764276.jpg is this the right sensor? Do you think all secret is in wiper stalk? All wires are the same? I am a bit afraid to damage something.

    Whereabouts are you located - might be easier to get a local retrofitter from the forum to advise and quote you?
