    Hi guys,

    Anyone know if the brightness on the LED DRL's can be adjusted with VCDS/VAGCOM?

    I'd prefer it if they didn't dim when the sidelights are turned on or when the indicators are on.

    Cheers :)

    Cheers, I did see that but was wondering if it's possible to have them at max brightness when just the sidelights are on?

    I'd like this too but I think it may be a little bright at night if they stay at max brightness with dipped.

    Sidelights (DRL) only at max brightness would be fine at night.
    They would need to be dimmed though when the xenon dipped beam is on.

    Why the hell would you want it on full brightness when using your turn signals? Don't you think other drivers might not see your turn signals and possibly result in an accident? Bad idea IMHO

    +1... They dim for a good reason when the turn signal is operated and they are brighter in the daylight because they are "DAYTIME running lights"!!!
    Can't see why you would want them a bright as sidelights considering if you have them you have Xenons...

    Plus this thread is ages old!! :blink:

    I've had mine set like this because I thought it looked a bit silly dimming when indicating, a bit like the DRLs weren't getting enough power when the indicator was on! And I think you can see them just fine. It's been like this a year and no one's crashed into me yet! lol *touch wood*

    The problem will be if someone does run into you, and they argue they never saw your turn signal, insurance assessor looks into your car and finds the setting changed... you could be in trouble with no pay out then. They are set to dim for a good reason especially on motorways.

    Norway here! We love riding with the DRL and the foglights at daytime to get the "bad ass" look, but the DRL is dimmed down when you put it on to park and one drag out on the switch. Anyone knows if you can stop the dim on park and just leave it strong like the daytime DRL?

    Sorry for bad english..hehe

    Yes
    09 Cent Elect
    Coding
    long coding helper
    Byte 24
    bit 0 to 6 DRL Dimming decimal value % 92 *1 = 92%
    bit 7 DRL as postion lights checked

    change the number to 100

    it is a number x 1% = brightnes percet

    eg 100 x 1% = 100%

    retick bit 7 box again

    if you want your rear lights with the drls add 1 to the byte 18 bit 7
    eg my TT is 58 LED drls BiZennon i change it to 59
    i now have all side lights with DR

    You need to change the digit on the top line long coding as there is no option with the helper
    use vcds 10.3 but I use the new VCDS 11.2 download
