    I should have known better, but having talked to a tech at Harrogate Audi on the phone who agreed it was do-able, I took it in to them today for a While-U-Wait job to have the following VAG-COM work done on my 2009 Final Edition A4 Cab (B7):

    • Unlock RNS-E Nav disc eject
    • Retrieve RNS-E pin code
    • Turn off selective locking
    • Turn off speed locking
    • Turn off seatbelt chime (module 17 penultimate code flip digit to 0)
    • Enable telephone voice control (module 77 penultimate code flip digit from 0->2)
    They came back to me after an hour all sheepish and said they'd only been able to do the first job and the rest weren't possible: too complicated / too specialist / too dangerous. They said they weren't going to charge me, like they were doing me a favour!

    Makes me want to buy VCDS just to show them, but I don't think this work is really worth 250 quid ;) I can't believe Audi garages don't know how to work on Audis.

    So, can anyone recommend a specialist in Harrogate / Leeds / York who can do this stuff?

    Thanks BlackQuat - you were a bit too far for me to travel. I ended up using a mobile car technician who did everything I wanted for £40. So if you're looking for someone with a VAG-COM/VCDS in the Leeds / York area, I can highly recommend Chris Dodgson at ADS : Engine Diagnostics - Leeds | Auto Diagnostic Services

    You cant retreive pin from radios with VCDS, so he either has the dealer VAS unit or he's rewritten a new pin number with a cd hack.

    Also dealers dont use vagcom, they use VAS & new tool thats name escapes me right now.
