    Anyone know if it is possible to recode the DRL's so I get the turnsignals stay on instead of the LED strip on the B8?

    I know it is possible on Golf MK5, Some Audi A3's and Audi A4 B7.

    Haven't heard of a request like this before. Are you sure it can be done on an A3?

    Mean looking car by the way!

    Not the newest A3 with LED's. It is something about using canadian light set up instead of European(like mine is)

    My S3 is that era and there's no option on VCDS for Canadian. Just Scandinavian (DRLs plus tail lights) or North American (DRLs only) :shrug:

    Anyway sorry I can't help mate.

    NHN. Thank you :) I will try this next time I connect vcdc to my car. But are there any place to se how I do long coding? I have to admit I don't know how to do it without the long coding helper :(
    I have only used that when coding.

    yes :)

    Module 9 activate Byte 10 bit 0 (change to 1)
    Then go to byte 2 bit 6 and activate that one (change to 1).

    Thanks to DavidB8 on Audizine for help with this.

    Hi guys. I am new to this forum, it's very helpful and I have already found the answers to some of my questions.
    I know now how to put the Xenons in to the Tourist mode to drive in Europe.
    The questions I couldn't find the answers on this forum are:

    1.Is it possible to have the tail LED lights as the DRL's and if yes how to do it.

    2. Is it possible to have the mirrors automatically folded when I lock the car/activate the alarm and opened when I switch the ignition on (I think it should be possible as I have had a loan car which had this function). How to do it?

    3. How to make the mirrors tilt when I choose reverse.

    I have an Audi A6 Avant Le Mans 2.0Tdi Multitronic 2009 (C6 F4)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Serge

    Given turn signals are used for that very thing, you may get pulled by the polizia for lights being on constantly, question is, why would you even want to consider yellow/orange lights on all time, the led drl's are far better.

    hehe, it seems er have different opinions in the UK and Norway.
    Crisp white and blue are played out... GIMME SOME ORANGE LEDS AND SUM 1000K HIDS!...just kiddin, but i kinda like the look

    I would like it as sidelight, when im parked with like 10%-20% brightness. Police cba unless i drive with it imo.
