    Does anyone know if there are any hidden MMI menus for the latest Audi A7?
    I know some of the older Audis had a way of getting into the system by pressing and holding a couple of buttons.

    You can try Car+Back for Red Menu.

    The Green Menu must be enabled first via VCDS, and after this you can enter it by pressing and holding Car+Menu.

    You can get more information in the A6/C7 tips&tricks topic.

    Cheers for the info. Pressing and holding car and menu doesn't seem to do anything? Do I need to have it in a particular menu or something?
    Also, how do you get the green screen enabled and does it effect warranties etc do you know? I don't know anyone who has the VCDS software unfortunately.

    Yes, as I told, you have to enable the Green menu with a VCDS first. Until then, Car+Menu will do nothing.

    Also, how do you get the green screen enabled and does it effect warranties etc do you know?
    As far as I know, it has nothing to do with the warranty, but all this kind of tips and tricks can cause expensive service bills if you don't know what you do in these menus. The Green Menu in itself usually not a useful thing, it's usage is mandatory to make the VCDS modifications active.

    I don't know anyone who has the VCDS software unfortunately.
    First please refer to the tips & tricks topic's first page, there you can find all the possible modifications. If you will need something from these, than these can be done in several places. But if you don't need anything from the listed options, then you will not need the Green Menu at all.

    Sorry I meant the Car+Back option for the red menu. This doesn't seem to work. The only red menu I can get is the standard Car button. Does this also need the VCDS enabled to work?

    Maybe the hidden green menu may could cause me more problems than I'll gain.
    Thanks for your help so far. Very much appreciated.

    As this doesn't appear to be "[a] topic related to home or business computer and personal technology" I have moved it from Tech Shed to the A7-S7 section.


    Considering selling my VCDS KEY-USB interface. If you're interested please contact me via PM or email.

    Maybe you pressed the wrong order: Press the Car first, hold it, press Back, and hold it. Hold these for ~five seconds. This is the regular way to enter the Red Menu. However, as you have a brand new car, maybe this menu was disabled, or maybe it has a different key combination. Never mind, there are not too much interesting things in the Red Menu, you can live happily without it

    Thanks for your help so far. Very much appreciated.
    Your welcome, enjoy your car

    Looks like they must have disabled it as no joy.
