    Your S3 should already have this activated as I believe its a standard activation feature on the S3. Weird why its not or is this one of those weird Audi things that was to do with facelift mods and red>>>white DIS?? They are both in adaptation for Instruments. If you havent got VCDS have a look on the map and find a member near to you and PM them asking if they would be kind enough to assist you.

    [09-Instruments] - [Adaptation] - [ Special function I]

    There I think it should be 111 (lap timer and needle sweep active)

    If this is wrong then someone will be along to correct it.

    You need to go into Instruments module 17, then into adaptations.

    Get a genuine one then I can help further, sorry I don't support Chinese counterfeits, any discussions on them will be removed as the forum only supports genuine interfaces aswell.

    I maybe in that area soon, so ping me a PM if of use.
