Audi A3 8P Power Folding Mirror Coding

    Afternoon All,

    This is my first thread, so bare with me if something is slightly wrong...

    During the lockdown period I have retrofitted power folding mirrors to my 5dr A3 8P SB. I have sourced and fitted all the necessary parts including the 'P' spec door modules. The next step of this little project is to get them coded into the car. I have contacted my local VCDS dealer who has asked me to have the code ready for him. This is my first time dabbling into the coding side of any car, so I thought to seek some advice.

    I have found the coding for the 8V which to my understanding is similar, but the 8P does not require coding to the CE? Is what I have found below correct for the 8P model?

    Enabling Drivers Door Folding Mirror
    [42 - Door Elect. Driver]
    [Coding - 07] -> [Long Coding Helper] -> Byte 4 Bit -> 4 Change 0 to 1
    Or Check the box for "Foldable Mirrors Installed "

    Enabling Passenger Door Folding Mirror
    [52 - Door Elect. Pass]
    [Coding - 07] -> [Long Coding Helper] -> Byte 4 Bit -> 4 Change 0 to 1
    Or Check the box for "Foldable Mirrors Installed "

    On another note if anyone is interested in the process of installing these I'm happy to share what's worked and what's not worked.

    8V uses long coding, 8P is a collective number added together, vcds pops up the coding helper anyway to advise the numbers to add for features on each door.

    Thanks for the information, it sounds like it should be fairly intuitive then?

    8V coding is nothing like the 8P as you have a mix of whats known as Long Coding and Adaptation channels for this retrofit. Waste of time following any 8V related information.

    Depending on what you have in your car, ie door handle illunination, safe motor , pinch point etc will determine what your code would be . So once you open the module 42 go to coding and add up what you have in your car and type code into drivers side , then passengers aide ahould be 1 number less , my passengers is 0004734 , my drivers is but i couldn't see this code working as mine has be reprogrammed uaing Eeprom ( 0135804 ) mind i havr 3dr

    Can you please explain a little bit more regarding parts for this retrofit, what I need to buy and install how many parts?
    I have standard mirrors.
