    What do you need the codes for? if you have VAG com it tells you what you need to enter.

    the local garage could not do it. Did not have vag com it had a cheap diagnostic reader which could not change anything. So is anybody with vag com in the lincs area willing to help me or as my car is going for a service at Lincoln Audi next week, would the stealers do it for me. Would they frown on me for doing these jobs myself and refuse to do anything about it?

    I got Ipswich to do mine for me while it was in for a fault code thrown up by turning of the traction control

    Just dropped the car off at Lincoln and asked them to sort it out, so hopefully they will. Gave me a bogstandard 1.9TD manual as a courtesy car, can't wait to get my car back.

    Just returned from lincoln and they have sorted out the steering wheel and when they checked the rear light units they have put on the report sheet that it is working correctly. So am I right in saying you need vag com to adjust the settings. If yes what are the settings.
    They also fitted a black grille and surround for me and when I got home and checked it they didn't even tighten the top 3 torx screws, So I won't be using them again. I'll think I would rather go to the local audi specialist.
    If anyone has got vag com and is fairly local can you help me please.
