    Did you run a scan on the car and find out what sort of codes it is throwing, if any. Might give you an idea as to why it is giving an error.

    If I activate Audi Drive will I lose this when I press the car button?

    No, you won't. Car systems will be selectable from one and ADS from the other side of the MMI buttons.

    Does Carista give you a Launch Control count?? Is that free or do you need to subscribe for it?? @Tashfeen ?? Guessing you’ll know this one.

    Yes, it does have launch counter. I am not too sure if the unpaid version does as I have the paid one which does

    I believe it is under 'Service'. A colleague at work has borrowed mine otherwise I would've checked and let you know exactly where to look.

    Is there any app that is free that will show you the fault codes? To save me from paying for Carista.

    MMI is playing up and there are error codes, just don't know what they are yet:

    There is probably VCDS Lite if it still exists, though as I'm a fully paid up owner of VCDS I don't know how much it allows it to reset. As usual, good information and good functionality does cost you money.

    Just for info. I am in Todmorden, Lancashire. My subscription runs out in a week, so if anyone wants to use it, free of charge, with the carista dongle send me a message.

    Yup, Carista has been sending out fliers about that, I got my second one during last year's cheap deal, I thought that Carista were, at that time, just moving out of the dongle/adapter market - one year on it seems not so!

    I had a look today and haven't seen anything. In fact it seems that some things have been removed, certainly the Soundaktor adjustment used to be there. You could have a look at the Beta version but that is (obviously) not going to be fully stable.

    How bizarre. Yours is a B8.5, isn't it. I have it activated on my A3 8V as well as the B8 SE that I had.

    I found the mirror wouldn't return to the same spot and over a couple of reverses you would need to re-align the mirror! Sometimes in reverse I wouldn't want it to drop either so now-a-days I have it off by default by having the switch in another position. I'll use it if only needing to reverse park close to a kerb on the passenger side.

    Same here, it doesn’t really locate to exactly the same position. Just move the switch to passenger side as and when I need it. It is handy for curbs on that side though. Especially with freshly colour changed wheels!!!

    I asked the developer about this as I had the same problem. The mirror position is stored in the same memory that the power seats use. If you don’t have the power seats the mirror won’t remember it’s position.

    Carista came yesterday so I've had a play around with it. Knocking off seatbelt alarm, getting that god awful start/stop to remember that as a rule I want it off, led and rear DRL enabled, and ADS which I'm looking forward to trying out! Any ideas why that wouldn't simply just be enabled on the car since it exists anyway?

    I've not touched the green menu other than following instructions for enabling ADS, anything else useful in there? I'm nervous about tinkering....

    Can you not close all windows on locking the car?? This doesn’t seem to work with a long press on the remote?
