    I am interested in having the above fitted to my 2007 a4 avant, is it possible to have it fitted to the 1.8t?
    Also what else would i need if i got this kit & is there anything else required to fit it & get it working?

    eBay - Item # 280963940389

    Thanks in advance
    Nige.

    Thanks for the link Sandra, i had a nosey through it but i hit a snag when it came to coding it in. I feel confident enough to fit it but don't have access to vcds to code it in, keep contemplating on buying a cable but don't want to end up bricking my car :eek:

    It's quite easy mate. I managed :). Plus if you keep a note of anything you change it can be put back. Pushed the boat out a purchased the cable and it's been really helpful so far. You could always look for somebody local that has it and would sort you out

    Might look into getting the lead then & see if i can find some nice fella to show me how to use it :sos:

    Will check with the ebay seller if it is suitable for the avant, don't wanna get the wrong part to start of with ;)

    If you get a lead make sure you get a genuine one. I've had a couple cheapo and they don't do much or last long. As for the cruise you'll want the stalk, lower steering wheel surround and possible the ccm module, clock spring depending what's fitted. I had to go whole hog as I didn't have dis or mfsw fitted

    Without sounding too dumb here, what exactly is dis? Is it the dash? I have the mfsw fitted so hoping that's part of the problem sorted already. Well it looks like if i can't find anyone close to me to code it in then i may well just have to get one of those ross tech leads, i've heard about those classy chinese ones ;)

    Also try sposor Jb0o he in hartlepoole, he can fit/code as well. If you fit yourself and just need coding, click the map link in my signature and you will see those around you on the map, jstvsend them a private message (conversation) :) x

    im in Sheffield

    you will just need the stalk and lower cowl as you have MFSW you have the correct parts already fitted

    dis is the average fuel used times distance to empty etc.

    do you have buttons on the end of your wiper stalk ? if so that's dis sorted.

    its about an hour tops to fit and code and yes going down hill if will keep its speed unless its very steep.

    Yeah got the buttons on the wiper stalk, Thought it was that but was unsure what it was abbreviated for, don't tell me 'display'? :(

    So if i was to order the parts i listed above from Audi, would you be interested in helping me out with the fitting & coding if i travelled up to you?

    either clutch or brake switch
    very rare for them to show a fault code

    unplug the clutch switch and bridge the plug test the cruise if it works then buy new audi or tps only and your sorted

    if not working still them brake switch
