Correct, High Beam Assist was an option on C6 FL. Have retrofitted this several times. Pretty straightforward. Requires new rear-view mirror (which includes the CMOS camera), new indicator/high beam stalk, E-CAN. 2 new wires need to be run from the mirror to the gateway for E-CAN. Central...
Higher or lower in the alphabet doesn't always mean newer or older. It really depends if M is the software or hardware index. The first is usually hardware and software goes second. 4F0 907 468 M should support 3G+ but does not support Extended CAN (ACC, Lane change, high beam assist, etc.)
Here is the list of Extended CAN gateways you can use:
4L0 907 468 A, SW: 4L0 910 468 A
4L0 907 468 C, SW: 4L0 910 468 A
20-pin: (you will need this if you want to go to 3G+)
4F0 907 468 G, SW: 4F0 907 468 G
4F0 907 468 G, SW: 4F0 907 468 L
4F0 907 468 G, SW: 4F0 907 468 N

@B5NUT - the country coding is RoW - left-hand drive and does not affect the language, unfortunately.
But to answer my own question.... I have experimented a bit and found out that actually, the language is not set in the Long Coding, despite of what Ross-Tech documentation says. Instrument...
Interesting problem... I have upgraded the instrument cluster to the facelift version. All coding done, mileage adjusted, CP removed. The instrument cluster is from Germany, though and even though I changed the coding to switch language of the cluster to English (UK), some messages are still in...
According to Elsa, it should work. One wire goes to the Gateway and then continues to the alternator (blue wire). The second wire (black/purple) seems to go the fuse box in the luggage compartment... not yet sure where but hopefully I'll find out.
Aah, just looked at the wire diagrams and understand how it is done. There is only one wire - going from the battery monitoring unit to the gateway and from there to the alternator. So no second wire from the boot is needed. Good, saved me a bit of dismantling :)
Are you sure there is only a single wire going from the boot to the alternator? I remember someone saying thay just tapped the second wire under the engine control unit and re-routed it to the gateway...?
Also, how about mirror heating? Are door control units also affected? Right now, my mirror...
Interesting, will see if I can do this. The alternator is a straight swap? No coding? I understand I will have to only use one wire going to the battery management unit. I will use the existing second wire and re-route it to the gateway somewhere near the plenum chamber.
My car has 145k miles on it, so I guess replacing the alternator is not a bad idea. I didn't see any room underneath to operate to take the voltage regulator off. Is it really that easy? My info is that the engine has to move to replace the alternator. Also, my car is an Allroad so chances are...
Thanks B5NUT then it is as I suspected. I bought a whole new alternator, which is newer than mine (same specs) and has the FL voltage regulator. I also have the new cable. Now it's down to having the alternator replaced - a PITA job AFAIK.
Hi all, I'm back with the seat heating problem. Tried switching A/C units but the problem persists. A friend led me to believe this might be due to the battery management. Right now, I have upgraded to the 20-pin gateway but this is not connected to the alternator. I still have the old BM unit...
I would actually be ok with 3G as the only thing available through the online connection is google earth maps and 3G is sufficient for it. 2G is just too slow and by the time the map loads properly I'm already out of the area :)
I guess your unit comes from an A4, A5 or Q7 originally? Mine is originally an A8 unit and it required parametrization to enable the entertainment fade.
The unit is a 4H0 035 670 G so my guess it is around 2011. Which receiver module is the one to get, would you know? I only know it's a Temic...
On a better note, I managed to get the entertainment to fade when parking aid is on, which seems to not work for some people :)
The one thing that I'm still a bit confused about is that my data connection seems only 2G. The 3G icon just never comes on. Is there some modem settings that I need...
Thanks much guys for your help with the heated seats. My settings seem to be correct, so I ran a little bit more diag with VCDS and it appears that it's the actual panel that is broken or loaded with the wrong software. When I try to switch on seat heating via the Output Test function of the...
