    I connect vagcom on audi and compare the temeratures on audi and vagcom.
    Until temperature was rising to 90°C anything was fine, both values was correct. But when temp on VAGCOM rose to 100°C, on audi (water temp gauge) was still 90°C. WTF?!?! I don't want this, I want audi to show me actual temp of water!

    It's there some way to reprograme this?

    In a word, NO. So long as the temp needle is on 90 which is straight up, then everything is in working order as far as you are concerned. The actual temp probably fluctuates between 90-100 with the fan kicking in at 100 to cool it back down to 90 which is optimum running temp.

    The dash has a built in buffer to stop the needle fluctuating all over the place. If it were to stay at 100 for a period of time, it would rise to show you.

    Otherwise it would be like the original mini and the like with their fuel gauges varying depending if you were going uphill or downhill, or around corners
