    There are some features fitted across the whole VAG range of motors that some people will miss. Here's a couple to start you off-----------
    1. Centre sun visor above the rear view mirror. It's just a small plastic pull down flap on the front edge of the headlining.
    2. Parking place for fuel filler cap. The cap has 4 notches around the edge, use any 2 of these to hook it on to the top edge of the filler flap to stop scratches when it dangles on the rear wing.

    Add some more if you can.

    If you have dual zone aircon, you can sync the temp control for both sides by pressing down the driver side air con temp knob for a few seconds. Try it!

    In a similar way, both mirrors adjust when you adjust the drivers side, you then have to switch over to the passenger side to adjust this one individually.

    I think it can be set in VCDS. My headlight washes activate if I have the washer stalk active for more than 3 seconds or so.

    How do you know if your car radio has Bluetooth. I have a 2008 A4. It has a concert radio. Will this have Bluetooth?

    Don't think BT is standard pal, I think it's a separate module that is an option although my talk out of my ****!!! Search for BT on your Moby in the car when switched on and see if it apppears, I might have a go as have same motor as you by looks of it, mines 08 sline 1.8t cab.

    You may need extra modules to stream music through your speaker. Give HNH a message if you are interested and he can quote you up.
