    Recently got an 2012 a7. Great car just wonder If there's a way to do a few things below.

    1. Adaptive cruise control be set to number 1 distance
    2. Stop radio from starting - I will try mute or volume down see what happens after that
    3. Auto stop start when stopped using the brake is there a way to keep it off with foot off brake using accelerate to activate engine would be great as using auto hold defeats the object when realising brake
    4. Lights switching them to off should be off? Drl,s are on but switched onto side lights drl,s are on but dim?
    5. Rear indicators to be dynamic well semi dynamic between the 2 indicator lights?
    6. Set speed for when spoiler comes on? And ba k down?
    7. Keep spoiler up when car off and start again?
    8. If somebody in the car ford and vw have a way to reduce the alarm allowing you to lock doors with somebody in the car?
    9. Map in the cluster shows Compass when no route selected is there a way to show the road etc?
    10. Front parking sensors do t activate when close to a car unless button is.pressed or reverse is activated?
    11. Reverse camera my picture is poor is there a way to get it clearer?

    Sure there's a few things if missed lol sorry if it's long

    1 - yes Iíve done it on mine. You need VCDS or someone with it to activate the menu in the MMI to allow you to change the preset.
    2- not sure. Try setting the volume to minimum?
    3-no I donít think so
    4-can be done but again need the menu activating with VCDS
    5-yes, I did this before getting the new new fully dynamic lights. There is a box that you connect that allows the semi dynamic feature to work. Have a search on google for A7 semi dynamic indicator box.
    6-not found a way yet but must be doable
    7-not found a way but would t want it to act that way personally.
    8-yes, again you need VCDS
    9-I donít think so
    10-Iím trying to find this as I like how VW activates automatically when near an object.
    11-check the camera lens doesnít have moisture or condensation inside. Iíve seen that a few times and youíd need a new camera if thatís the case.

    Thanks i have replies in Red.

    Found this on a r8 forum not more information about it

    There is a way of doing this, but it will require a little electronics knowledge.

    You need to be able to essentially do two things:

    a) Read the canbus speed signal
    b) Install a relay off the speed signal that will trip a switch at a desired speed

    I have done this for a customer with an S5 who retrofitted an RS5 rear spoiler and wanted it to go up at a lower speed than stock. A lot of work and trial and error.

    I think it was about a grand in total whereas the semi dynamic box is about £250 for the pair.

    10-Iím trying to find this as I like how VW activates automatically when near an object. (Please share if you do)

    I think Iíve nailed this one. Will confirm next week.

    I think itís just the camera which needs replacing.
