Dial sweep? Walk me home lights? (If that's the technical term)

    As above really guys, anyone know if it's possible to code in dial sweep and lights that stay on when locking and unlocking? Mite have been covered but I can't find anything. Cheers :)

    Coming home lights, think you need the switch on the dash for them, so not sure it's just a coding thing....
    Think dial sweep is just b8's as well

    That's a shame about the dial sweep, noticed an 07 Octavia vrs had it the other day, was hoping the same could be done on the b7. When ya say a switch for the coming home lights, is it just a different headlight switch or an additional one?

    Yeagh, there's a second knob, right next to the headlamp height adjuster and you can either have them on or off. Work when you open and close the car with the key or switch off the engine and open the driver's door from the inside, and stay on for about a minute. It lights the fog lights and rears light clusters and cabin lights. Must say, it looks really classy and never ceases to amuse me!

    Cheers

    I think my drl switch is there. Doesn't look like there's space for another without making a mess of the dash. I'll look into it.

    It's hardly worth it then. I thought If it was a case of a switch and abit of coding, I'd do it just to have it. If it's big money I'll live without..

    Yeh looked in to this with my previous Audis and there was too much work involved.


    ...have it on mine now must admit its a nice feature but very rare.

    There are after market modules but not sure how they work and how good they are...

    Worth it if you can get it, especially if you've upgraded your number plate and interior bulbs to LEDs, looks pretty cool and very easy to find your car in a dark car park...

    Defiantly a nice feature but didn't realize they was rare, only problem I seem to find is when you walk away from your car you get people telling you that you've left your lights on all the time

    When you turn the ignition on, the dials sweep to the right and then back again, like an R8. Nothing major just a nice little touch
