    Yep. Open 46 (comfort module) and look at the long coding in the long coding helper. You'll see options for

    Select 46 (Comfort System)
    Long Coding -> Function 07

    Byte 06 Bit 0 Unlocking Confirmation (Blink) via Door Locks
    Byte 06 Bit 1 Unlocking Confirmation (Horn) via Door Locks
    Byte 06 Bit 2 Unlocking Confirmation (Blink) via Remote Control
    Byte 06 Bit 3 Unlocking Confirmation (Horn) via Remote Control

    Byte 07 Bit 0 Locking Confirmation (Blink) via Door Locks
    Byte 07 Bit 1 Locking Confirmation (Horn) via Door Locks
    Byte 07 Bit 2 Locking Confirmation (Blink) via Remote Control
    Byte 07 Bit 3 Locking Confirmation (Horn) via Remote Control

    Before you change anything write down your original code, just in case!

    Do you really want it? I think its well annoying and loud! If it was an electronic beep then yeah but its a blow on the horn, wakes the neighbours up in the morning! :)

    .....that is of course if it works the same as when i enable it on my Beetle. It got turned off straight away!

    Bloody annoying beep though especially at night, then again I'm nocturnal anyway so regularly go out at stupid times of morning to check something on car or grab some tools, lol, but for sure you hear that beep on an audi & you think uhhhhh noooooooo

    It wasn't a blow of the horn on my 2005 A3 sportback.
    It was a high-pitched beep.
    Not particularly loud and only for a fraction of second.

    Anyone that finds it annoying must need psychological help, as they're evidently in a very fragile state of mental health.:scared2:

    I loved the beep, I'm looking to have the same thing enabled on my D3.

    Its not a horn blow - its an unobtrusive electronic beep. I find it really useful personally and am regularly grateful for it. I once had a "senior moment" in the Trafford Centre car park (about 8,000 cars) and could not remember where the hell I'd parked. I was very grateful for the beep that day as the indicator flash would have been invisible.

    The beep is a little loud for my liking. I park in an underground car park, and the echo/reverberation is a little annoying after a while. Must be the roof or something.

    So thats 2 of us to the psych ward now then Boggy

    To me it sounds rather **** tbh, you expect it from a halfords after market alarm system but not an audi, not being stuck up or anything but its well built good car so I expect the alarm to be on the same level if you get me, I mean also the siren is pathetic isnt it, lol, ok cant be to loud because of the law or something & must go of after a period of time but really its **** sound level & sounds like the bloody birds sitting on the damn trees, lol

    the old A3 beeped the horn which sounded naff. I prefer no noise either but then again I already reside in the nut house.

    On a 2005 it's not the same beep as on a newer A3. I dunno when it was changed but the old way is very quiet.

    I find the volume on mine very useful for when I'm in a carpark and can't remember if I locked the car! I got into a habit after Afghan of not locking my car.

    You'd have to be locking/unlocking the car a helluva lot for it to be remotely (sic) annoying.
    Any neighbour of mine complaining about a once-a-day, split-second 'beep' would get a look I normally reserve for women passing comments on a football match.:tocktock:

    Exactly mate! a few months of no doors and then picked up a brand new S3 and probably a third of the time in the first month I found I hadn't locked the doors overnight.
