    My 2006 A4 1.8T S-Line has no trip computer-WTF!?!?
    Astonishing considering MK5 Golf TDIs have them.
    Is it possible to retrofit using a cluster with trip computer?

    You should just need the wiper stalk with trip and someone to code it in. I've got a spare saloon stalk if interested

    Do you actually have a dis fitted, just not trip data in the display, if no dis at all then yes its a cluster job, if has dis then needs stalk fitting & coding, we offer these services.

    Sorry for being a noob but can someone explain what DIS is and perhaps some pics to compare DIS & non DIS clusters??

    OK Driver information display. Not sure. I have a central display with lines seperating the different sections.
    I have miles until empty, outside air temp and something else but no button on stalk to scroll through other functions.
    Does this mean I need just the stalk?

    Yeah, should just mean you need the correct stalk and then someone with vagcom to code it for you

    Mazi if you do attempt yourself, be very careful as breaking any of the parts in the way can end up costing £200+ to replace & can render the car unusable, so be careful.

    I can can heartily endorse this sentiment. My inept attempts to feed a cable for my DRLs into the fuse box left me with a £350 bill and very lucky not to lose my ECU altogether. Unless you are really confident of knowing what you're doing, pay a professional to do a professional job.
