Afternoon all!

Just picked up a 2009 Q5 which has had a few nice upgrades from the previous owner, however I have a few questions if you don't mind helping out :thumbs up:

1. It's had an SQ5 flat bottom steering wheel added and whilst all the controls seem to work, the paddles don't to shift through the gears. Is this something that can be programmed with VAGCOM or is it more likely that some wiring is missing?

2. Front end has had a face-lift with updated bumper and headlights. Again, working fine apart from the headlight washers. Can it be programmed or more likely to be missing the components behind the bumper?

Dash also brings up error for DRL and headlight bulbs which both work. Hopefully this is cleared up with VAGCOM?

3. Only had it happen once, but when coming to a stop, the car feels like it wants to jump forward just before it stops completely. A bit of a "jolt"

Appreciate it's a hard one to diagnose over t'interwebs but any obvious things to check?

GREAT looking car smudge90 :thumbs up:

There's going to be an ASN member with VCDS (VAG-COM) in Hampshire that'll help - get down to the "VCDS (formerly VAG-COM) forum" and review... :readit:
