    I was browsing through some german forums today and came across this. It was listed under Q5 mods but I tried on my 2012 A6 and coding was accepted. Didn't had chance to test it yet. Anyone else done this or can confirm if this actually works.

    Motorway mode takes advantage of the large amount of light and optimized lateral and apron lighting of the xenon plus pig launcher. About sensors, a vehicle electronics analyzed continuously the speed of the vehicle. After a short time above 110 km / h, the system is based on a highway driving and automatically switches from the low-beam mode in motorway light mode. Due to a special position of the aperture in the xenon headlights plus additional light is then focused by an aluminum reflector and far in front of the vehicle is thrown but without dazzling other road users. The sight is more than doubled: from 70m in low-beam mode to 150m motorway light mode. This increase in visibility means to respond to objects in front of the vehicle at a speed of 130 km / h has a gain of 2 seconds. so Motorway mode increases driving safety significantly.



    The following coding applies:

    Select Cent. Elec. - 09
    Coding 07
    From Drop down menu Select 2 - xxx - RLS (rain and light sensor)
    byte 0
    Bit 0 - motorway light - Activate

    I've activated it but reading the text it only applies to the Xenon Plus headlights which have the high beam assist??

    In my VCDS is states 90mph and above!

    Do you have the high beam assist?

    Or just standard xenons?

    Mine are standard so I don't think this will work even though it's been enabled

    Do you have to flick the stalk to activate or simply drive at the required speed?
