    Hi All!
    I test drove a 2009 S3 and on start up, the needles did a sweep round the dials before going back to the start.
    My 2007 S3 needles dont do this.
    Is there anyway for them to do this?
    Thanks in Advance.

    It depends - some 2007's can do it and some can't.

    Only way to find out is to have your car plugged in on vagcom and see if the option is there!

    My S3 was Manufactered in March 07, if that helps. I just need to find someone with VAGCOm in South Wales.

    For me, it added a few thing. The Digital speedo is my favourite. It also adds comfort functions for doors & windows alone with a way of checking oil temp. Above all, its higher a resolution & looks cleaner & more modern.

    Yeah very hard, on your wallet lmfao

    TBH it depends on the dealer you use to code it in, mine are brilliant, done a number for me & other members, but some other dealers are cockerels of the highest order, get all up there own cause you have the audacity 1st to ask them, 2nd to supply your own cluster & 3rd to advise them the true time/cost of the job, some reports about dealers are hard to believe some days, but they're true.

    It seems like a big job and too much hassle!

    If you think thats a big job then you'll never get any mods done :p

    TBH its fairly simple, for your car its a case of finding the right cluster & a dealer to code, that by my reckoning isnt hard at all or hassle.
