    thanks!!! will try but am slightly confused with the window re programming.
    so you hold the lock button till they close? then release and press lock button again the the unlock button to open them fully?

    Sorry, didn't explain it very well. You need to do the following:

    1) Press window switch to wind window all the way down.
    2) Release switch.
    3) Even though window is fully wound down press and hold 'wind down' switch again for a few seconds. You will probably hear a little click.
    4) Do steps 1 - 3 but this time winding the window up.
    5) Do the same for all windows.

    Actually dont release the switch for at least 5 seconds when doing this process, so wind it down holding the switch in that same position when fully down for 5 seconds, then wind it up & hold switch in position for 5 seconds, do this twice 1 after another as I find sometimes it doesnt take on the 1st go

    The car learns your driving styles again & you would probably be back to square one, so in the 1st instance it may appear different, but it wouldnt most likely be a prolonged change.

    Tried this myself last night. Once all the ESR & power steering fault lights sorted themsleves out I went for a spin. Certainly perked the S3 up - at full chat I got that nice induction noise I had when I got a trial remap & it certainly pulled a bit better than previously.

    Radio, date etc all stayed set - only had to reset the clock.

    Might not last too long, but nice cheeky temporary pep up...:thumbsup:

    Just trying this now. Will update later.

    Had a moment of panic when I shut the bonnet and locked it. I forgot you can open the doors with a key!

    I guess it depends what your car had 'learnt' before you did it. Mine had obviously learnt to be a lazy slob so the reset did it a world of good.
    Maybe yours was already running fine.

    :yes:
