    Hi guys,

    I have auto lights on my S3, im just wondering as a few people on here have mentioned it can be done, does anyone know where in VCDS you can enable DRL's to be on in the off position?

    My mother has an A1, her drl's are on constant at full brightness when the lights are at the off position. I want this on my S3 :)

    Thanks

    yes it can be done via VCDS, but right now I cant remeber the code.

    I did it a while back but didnt like the idea of it, so set it back to default

    Just had a look through VCDS with a friend, couldnt see that option anywhere. The only thing we could do was change it from US to Scandinavia, which also has done nothing to the sidelights. Maybe it just cannot be done on mine (58 plate facelift model).
