    Planning on cleaning my S3's throttle body this weekend, following the thread on UK-MkIVs:

    A little confused though when it comes to alignment. Having a DBW throttle but no VAGCOM to hand to align it, am I right in thinking that it will align itself after a few miles of driving?

    "Switch on the ignition and leave it on for 30 seconds.
    (You should hear some clicking in the engine bay, always after a battery disconnect)
    This is not guaranteed to happen as the ecu decides if it needs doing"

    Thanks - sounds pretty straightforward! One question though; why would you go through the hassle of fiddling around with VAGCOM if it realigns itself by leaving the ignition on for 30secs?

    Doing it with VAGCOM guarantees it will go through the motions, ignition method is less predictable... and connecting your computer to your car is cool :thumbsup:
