Thought I'd start a new thread to pull together all the VCDS mods I've come across so far for the 8V. At the moment only limited coding info is available for the 8V, although this will improve as time goes on. Admin - Might be worth making this a sticky? These are all tested and working fine on my MY14 S3, but please note you carry out all VCDS mods at your own risk. Always take a backup of the current coding, and remember the adaptions you can make are dependant on the model/options in your car. Acoustic (Alarm Beep) on Lock/Unlock  Central Electronics Go to Security Access and enter 31347 Adaptation channels, and you are looking for: (1)-Acknowledgement Signals - Akustische Rueckmeldung entriegen (Un-lock acoustic feedback) (2)-Acknowledgement Signals - Akustische Rueckmeldung verriegeln (Lock acoustic feedback) Set each or one of them to Yes Just to note the beep is much quieter than the old 8P beep, but still useful especially with advance key. Acoustic Lock Menu  Central Electronics Go to Security Access and enter 31347 Adaptation channels, and you are looking for: Acknowledgement Signals -Menuesteuerung akustische Rueckmeldung Set Yes This enables a new menu setting in the car settings screen which you can control (on/off) the lock (not unlock) beep from the MMI, rather than using VCDS. Set Oil Temperature on all DIS Menus  Instruments Go to Long Coding Byte 10, Bit 1. Display Oil Temperature Tick Box This enables the oil temperature on all DIS menus (the ones you scroll with your left thumb) rather then just the lap timer. Very handy as the S3 has no temp gauge! Should be like this as standard really! Adjust Switch Off Speed For Parking Plus  Park/Steer Assist Go to Adaptation You are looking for: Abschaltgeschwindigkeit fur Einparkhilfe or Switch off speed for parking assist Change to a speed you like (Standard is 10 km/h) This changes the speed at which the parking plus system turns off after activation. I've set mine to 15 km/h so stays on longer. Anymore anyone? I'll keep this updated as I come across/work out more Disable DRL's in Light Switch 'O' Position  Central Electronics Go to Security Access and enter 31347 Adaptation channels, and you are looking for: (9) Tagfahrlicht-Tagfahrlicht nur in Schalterstellung AUTO Set Active This turns off the DRLs when the light switch is in the 'O' (off) position. I.e no lights at all, even the DRLs are turned off.
