    I seem to remember on my TT it was possible to do a factory re-set which tightened up throttle response etc.Certainly on my Merc C Class I could do this and it was great .It meant if you had been lazy on the throttle for a while you could get a re set which meant it was much sharper.Can you do that on the A4 ?

    You're thinking about the Throttle Body Alignment.

    I've not tried it yet but I'd expect so :

    would love to have a play around with some of these settings - i'm due a service soon so might see if i can get some changed at same time

    anyone had experience of the cheaper Vag-Com cables available on Ebay ?

    £30 v's £300 for the rosstech one ?

    seems the rosstech one acts as an activation dongle for their software - is the freeware version any good for minor tinkering like altering the settings mentioned ?

    You're only paying a bit for the cable. Most of it is to use the software hence why Ross-Tech put a dongle in the cable. You can download a free old version of the software which is fine on cars 5 years old etc but with our using the CAN bus you need a fairly up to date version.

    Did you really think people throw big money at it if it could be done very cheap

    p.s. You can actually do it a lot cheaper. THere are applciations out there for £25 or so that run on Iphones etc and use wifi to talk to a ODBII adaptor which is about £100.

    I know that Biscuit on Tyresmoke.net has this solution but since I'd already bough mine I've not looked into it.

    Can you use the MMI hidden menu on a Concert system or do you have to have NAV/MMI High ?

    Would these work on an 09 A3? Also, does anyone know how to make electric folding mirrors automatically fold in when the car is locked and out when unlocked/started, as my A3 doesn't do this, you must turn the knob.

    In intend to activate both Brake flashing mods. I did a test the other day and at a 60mph full on emergency stop the hazards didn't come on. No idea why it's not activated as I can't see any downside.

    I'm also gonna turn on the flashing brake lights. I've previously looked at an add on device so if the car can do it then why not!
