    Tried vcds with @DJAlix from VAG Car Coding and could net see any option.
    Carista showed only basic options so no luck also.

    Does anyone else know a way to code out bulb check so does my car do not flash like a Christmas tree?

    Could not see anything obvious via VCDS also :(

    @DJAlix, got the PY21W Amber indicator led bulbs to fit into the front but it threw an error.
    Can possibly fit the resistor but don't think it will get rid of the hyper-flash.

    Need permanent solution to it otherwise will be forced to go back to normal bulbs

    I remember I had a pretty long look at VCDS for a way to do this during our first session but could not see the settings I would expect to see from other vehicles... and carista, which I hate using, offered no solution also. Have just done a fast google and I think you will need to try the resistor route as it seems people are reporting the same bar the licence plate lights, people seem to retrofit A8 LED units for these.

    The rear ones did not gave any error but front ones did.
    Not much space in there to attach the resistor as a heat sink but will try.

    Installed them anyway and wanted to see the result and must say, they do not give as much light as standard bulbs.
    @t8ups offered some bulbs on A3 with different fitting base.
    Also mentioned that cheap bulbs may have weaker tight output and I think this is what happening on my car. Bulbs weren't cheap but not the mid or high shelf either. Also meant to be error free
    Wondered if he came up with solution for bayonet base.
    Did you had a chance to speak to him, Alex?

    There is no way of coding out the bulb checking on either central electrics or central convenience modules, it's hard coded in the firmware and not a coding option

    For the past few days I've been looking for the particular thread made by a guy from A6 C7 platform, who wanted to change he's front bumper to the RS6 bumper, but cannot find it anymore.
    As the RS6 don't have fogs and he's A6 did, he tried to code the fogs out so the ecu doesn't shout about them. He was digging quite deep in the vcds coding option and even showed the way how he did it to another member.
    Didn't seen the pictures of the finished project but screen shots of particular option and code values they should be changed to.
    I think it also worked for that another member.

    May this be the case of the A6 C6 that it cannot be done the same way for each and particular bulb?

    Unfortunatly there is no way to code / options features that are not available i.e. In the new A3 8V's the coding and adaptation options for lights is amazing detailed to the point where you can change voltages per bulb. The A6 C6 has no such coding or adaptation channels available, so the only option is hardware mods really.

    As above the C7 has completely different software & hardware controlling the bulbs, and the RS6 uses the same central electrics & central convenience modules as a normal A6 C7 so the option to code out the fog's is possible, as it had to be coded that way for the RS6. There is also no way of using the C7 electronic modules as the can-bus systems between the C6 & C7 are incompatible.

    Oh well ...

    Thanx guys for all your input.

    I don't think there is a car that We would've owned and not thinking of moding it.

    Managed to sort out front indicator dash error with a resistor.

    Made a video but app doesn't allow me upload it so will do it later.

    Indicator is working perfectly and much faster than normal bulb.
    Only thing is, intensity of the light.
    At night I will be definitely visible indicating vehicles from ahead of me but in day light might not be as bright.
    Might need to find more powerful bulbs on the net unless @t8ups will make some for us.

    On the pictures also can be visible

    In slow motion, the standard bulb is so slow and the led one just pop on and off.
    Love it

    Fitted second front indicator few days ago. Just got it up on YT


    Spoken already with @t8ups about proper led bulbs he invented/designed.
    Might be going for them soon.

    What do you people think of those?

    Will do another video of them during the day at later stage
