    Mirror Dip when Reversing

    I found it on Google (it might even be in the VCDS tricks thread in this very forum). I ended up disabling it again on mine though as for some reason, when putting the car back into drive, the mirror would return from being dipped but wasn't going back to it's original location - where it went...

    Brake pad warning light 2 weeks before mot... what are the best brands

    My weapons of choice at the moment are Brembo discs with EBC Redstuff - they're pretty good! :)

    Squeaky Steering

    Just for anyone elses info - this is what I found on Erwin Two articles relating to steering noise at the front of the car. The other is the issue of the noise around the slip ring at the steering wheel but in my case that doesn't apply.

    Ok thanks! I'll buy an hours access to Erwin as it should be on there :)

    Squeaky Steering

    Any ideas what it is that causes it? Obviously they don't have power steering fluid so that's to be ruled out. Mine has developed it as well - seems to be between 10-40mph - any faster and it disappears. Definitely coming from the front end of the car and on both sides - it's not at the...

    GPS & ACC BREAKING NOT AVAILABLE

    I brought mine off eBay luckily in the same colour as the body to save that hassle so not sure on that one. The dealership price was slightly eyewatering compared to a 2nd hand one which was in perfect condition when it arrived :)

    GPS & ACC BREAKING NOT AVAILABLE

    If you have an Avant and very flexible fingers, you don't need to remove the headliner - you can access it just about enough to undo it and replace it. You need o take off the panel between the bootlid edge and headliner though but it pulls off with a little bit of force - you can always replace...

    Monochrome Display Upgrade

    Maps only work on the display on facelift (2015>) cars as far as I know with MIB-2 fitted. 2013 will just show the arrows/junction arrows in high res. Auto transmission won't make any difference. Clusters come in petrol and diesel variants and also KMH and MPH.

    Monochrome Display Upgrade

    You can but you will need to buy a new cluster and then find someone who can do the mileage correction. You will also need a trip to the main dealer to remove CP.

    Comfort control unit

    Scrapping the Keyless will save you a bit of time wiring up behind the door cards but to be honest, to fit the power tailgate will mean you have to take the drivers side trim off all the way to the boot anyway. Kufatec may be able to paramaterize the module for keyless in advance. VCDS will be...

    Comfort control unit

    The biggest problem is the invest in equipment and access costs. There's plenty of tools for enthusiasts out there like VCP and VCDS but the cars are getting more and more advanced and blocking what you can do without official kit. Once you start looking at jobs requiring access to the central...

    Comfort control unit

    Depends how much extra the coding dongle is - might be worth giving @DJAlix a shout as he might be cheaper than buying the dongle. It might be worth giving him a buzz anyway as the CCM will need component protection removing unless it is a virgin unit from Audi parts. Dealers will do this but...

    Comfort control unit

    If you don't have the power tailgate option from factory then you will need a new Central Convenience module. Keyless retrofit can be done without changing the CCM if you have the power tailgate already. For Keyless, you also need VAG CAN Pro as VCDS cannot enable it. The unit has to be...

    Avant roof bar rubber feet?!?

    VAG have been having some issues with parts deliveries recently. My other half has a Golf and I recently went to get some parts from our local VW dealer - the parts manager explained they did a KFC DHL and switched their logistic network over to someone else and it went totally pete tong! Wrong...
