    Had a look around the site, but couldn,t really find what i was looking for.

    My mate as a beautiful deep red audi a4 170 bhp..... year 2007, anyway on his Dis, it gives him readings of his current fuel range, eg 350 miles left in the tank.
    Anyway to the point, i'm sure when i had his system in a previous audi i owned.... i was able to change what was readable in the DIS, miles per gallon, time driven etc etc..... now he reckons his DIS cannot be changed from showing fuel tank capacity.... i think he's wrong, so please put me right.
    He doesn,t have satnav in the car, it looks like the all red led ( i think) display, but does have MF steering wheel, he just as the ordinary concert radio, but is about to fit an off the shelf satnav to the vehicle.... obviously suitable for the audi a4.
    If you can help... Many thanks.

    My S Line only has the range thing. From what I have read the SE got the multi function DIS but the S Line did not hence the high number of people who retro fit it.

    As above the rocker switch will let you cycle through the options. You can add or remove categories if you go through the help function.

    I have an 05 SE and the DIS is Multi functional so the above quote may very well be totally correct.

    Have you had a play with VCDS? It has to be coded as being fitted with Board Computer on the steering wheel channel, mine stopped working when I was changing the coding on my steering controller when I was coding my retrofit cruise control. If not, have a play with the button on the underside of the wiper stalk and on the end of it.

    Thanks all, it seems your all correct, he as the s-line.... so its only showing fuel range, no extra button on wiper stalk.

    My S-line SE 170 from 2007 has a colour DIS with range, MPG, drive time etc. but i can't remember whether the S-line SEs had colour DIS as part of the pack. Maybe all the colour ones have the full suite of readings, whereas the red display only shows range?

    Know what you mean Bez. My 2003 Leon had twin computers with all the settings but my "posh" Audi doesn't. Tight gits! :)
