    I believe it worked on my PFL... Any idea how I can check??

    I have a slight drone which I noticed when doing it manually by unplugging them, so I think it is successfully done

    Can anyone confirm that on latest update (3.3) that start/stop disable function works with no fault codes and that oil temperature is displayed on all screens on the centre display between speedo and rev couter. Also I presume the push button for start/stop no longer has any function when toggled, if the Carista code to disable has been employed? This is for a 2017 S3 no VC and I would think there would no difference in PFL cars for application of these features and vice versa.
    Thanks in advance,
    Dougie

    Oil Temp is only on the DIS (screen in the binnacle). Its only on 2 view options for me. Its on the MPH (speed) option screen & 1st option screen. forget the names! scroll through and with the left scroll button on the wheel & it should be there. It doesn't work on the efficiency option which for me is option 2. Sorry if this is confusing. i forget the names of the 3/4 view options!

    Start/Stop thing did nothing for me. would love to hear more about it and how to get it working...

    Also would love to hear more about the much raved (@MadsE??) version that is in beta att he moment as there are supposedly more options coming? or is it just bull?!

    Haha. Sorry. I am really not good at posting the screenshots. But the final 3.4 version should be out in a few days.

    I can confirm that start / stop works on my car. I used method 1.

    There are several new options. But again it depend what your car support.

    Method one and two, please describe, as there is no info on the website. I assume they are temperature related and is the push button start/stop completely disabled?

    There are two options to chose from. My work with the first one and I guess yours will too. And be turned off completely and the button will not have any affect then - I guess. The behaviour is like when the car is cold.

    I think it is fair that @MadsE isn't sharing too much information since that is the nature of being a beta tester. If we told you all what is coming, then it didn't come or didn't work out then you'd be disappointed haha

    As a side note, if you wish to join the beta (I did) there is no obligation to try the new features... You can just 'look' if you wish :)

    Also I don't think Carista really want all details of the beta online as competitors could then work towards beating them to bring out new / similar features

    what would of been the best thing if they managed to do the exhaust valve open close option on there rather than going under the car and manually doing it

    See if you use these tools to set something - is it an instant warranty void from Audi? Always wanted to enable the auto tilt passenger mirror when reversing, but worried that Audi would try get out of any fault with the car if they noticed it was modified.

    You can just put everything back to how it was whenever you want. Something like mirror tilt will not be noticed

    Plus legally (as far as I can tell from logic / reading) they can't claim something like you enabling mirror tilt ruined the gearbox. Obviously if you have a mirror that becomes faulty... That could be a different story

    Can someone clarify about the in app purchase bit - I read somewhere that there is an amount to pay (£14.99) but is that an indefinite customisation subscription or for a year/limited period

    Not sure on the exact price mate. It if you go to their website it tells you very clearly the pay structure. I got the official Carista dongle so I got one month free with this. After the end of the free month I paid for a year full access at around £30.

    after a bit more research, it appear the "pro" used to be £14.99, but has now changed to a subscription based purchase - iTunes mentions

    Top In-App Purchases
    1. Pro Package£19.99
    2. Pro 1-week Pass£9.99
    3. Pro£33.99
    4. Pro£33.99
    Does 1 and 2 mean the subscription only ? - If so do not know what 3 and 4 are as they are both the same amount - perhaps they include the adapter??

    I haven't checked for a while to be honest. Bit annoying that even with the beta, you have to plug in and do the scan for it to see what customisations are available... and even then I don't 'think' it tells you what's new... have to work it out for yourself from memory

    Typical, do everything you need in the free trial period, get promised of marvels ahead, pay yearly fee, then nothing happens! Half got me thinking that Carista people signed up here to promote the app.

    Nothing for my A3. Lost faith in this thing. It does everything you want it to do in the free trial. No point in the upgrade per yr. Also, i got my needle sweep and all those extra things one does when you get the app, done by a chap in Leicester for £20 with his VCDS. Since iv got Carista all iv done is the chirp when locking. Hardly worth the £35ish yearly free and the £25 dongle price. Only point it becomes useful is if i have an error code on the dash. But even then if i get one i hope its before the yearly subscription runs out.... :blink:

    Sorry mate i really cant remember. Ill check my last posts and see if it comes up as i remember posting about it in August last yr. Think hes well known and recommended though.

    EDIT: Company are: http://www.vagpro.co.uk/

    I think he did a special price as he came really late at night and was really busy so had to fit me in. I was living close by too so bear this in mind if your quote is higher! but have a haggle anyway!!

    Still worthy for me as i'm one of the earlier ones that purchased Carista.. good times when it was £16 for the pro package, so bought it before the change of pricing took place.

    I will plug later to see what is there for my A3 but as you said I think I have done everything I wanted on my A3, needle sweep, oil temp, chirp on locking..etc..

    Regards

    I think they need to pull their finger out and actually test the stuff they are adding:
    • Allow configuring beep when locking / unlocking = new A4, A5, Q5, A7 only
    • Refuel Quantity in MFD = VW only
    • Oil temperature display = Mine is actually enabled
    • Allow enabling of oil Temperature display via MMI = new A4, A5, Q5, A7 only
    • Auto headlights activation threshold = should say early, late and something else

    Yeah it is a bit of a shame. It looked promising but I sent them a few errors too when enabling stuff, either errors, problems or it didn't work at all and I got nothing back really....

    Also like you say a bit annoying it doesn't 'feed back' from the car to say what's actually configured. It only seems to know what it has done.

    So the app is free...then can I use it with any OBD reader? Don't really want to fork out $52 CDN just for an OBD reader if it's just a generic one...

    The app is free, but for customisations and in-depth diagnostics (resetting of codes and reading full codes) you need to subscribe to their service

    But yes, generic adapters are compatible providing they meet the specific ELM (?) version they mention on their site
