    VW call it Auto Hold which is a less confusing description IMO.

    It is fitted as standard on the new Golf, we are test driving at the moment. So is the tyre pressure indicator which I also believe should be fitted as standard. If we decide to buy an Audi we will definitely want both these fitted.

    TPMS will be compulsory on all cars in the EU from 2014 so I will not be expecting to pay for it!

    You will though, as Audi will put up the prices of the car to account for the new standard kit, just like they did with DAB.

    I thought that DDS could be enabled through putting a code into the VCDS?

    AFAIK the TPMS uses the ABS sensor to check for any wheel that is spinning at a different speed than the others.

    It does not work if all the wheels deflate at the same rate. This happened to a mate of mine. He never noticed that his low profile tyres were going flat. All tyres and all alloys destroyed.

    Hi, if it is the second generation system fitted to the 8V then it should be able to detect simultaneous under-inflation in up to all four tires using spectrum analysis of individual wheels and this is performed within the software. Thus I would hope that the new A3 was using the newer version...

    I thought it got a 'base' rotation in the first 15 mins of driving, then compared to that. That's what the handbook suggests anyway.
