As of April 15, 2016, we have learned that some 2016 and newer MQB based models may contain certain modules which are not accessible with the HEX-USB+CAN
Not sure exactly what you mean cuke2u, you can update VCDS software and cable firmware but the HEX-USB+CAN interface has a hardware limitation on the newer MQB cars talking to particular modules.
OBDEleven is a completely different wireless interface which works in conjunction with an Android tablet. Has most of the VCDS features people would want and the price is excellent.
You can do the normal long coding like VCDS.
Module 46 works, see below link.
You can use the apps which do coding for you, these are chargeable items. If you know the VCDS codes, I wouldn't bother with the Apps. Long coding is free with the Pro version.
There is a debate about the very same thing over on the A3 8V forum here http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/hold-assist-via-vcds.296879/page-2#post-2861939 with a VCDS expert, the issue appears to be one of safety as the change in coding is rather guesswork that involves the abs module. That is probably something you don't want to muck about with...
