    I've got it on mine, although it's not diagnostics, I think its the settings, I can see the engine temperature, next service date, parking sensor distance and a load of other stuff.

    Although i'm not sure why the OP doesn't have it, so I'll leave that question to someone else!

    No, 8P has the oil temp on the DIS.

    PRE FACELIFT ONLY 8L's had it as part of the climate by pressing the bottom right and top right buttons then using the temp buttons to cycle through. It showed live engine data too.
