    Hi...

    Trying to compile a list of all the tricks that can be done to your car using VAG.com

    1. LED DRL's full brightness all the time when using indicators, fog lights or driving lights.
    2. Remove seat belt chime.
    3. Auto closing of sunroof or windows when arming the car.
    4. Sweeping needles on speedo / rev counter on startup of the engine.
    5. Enabling Lap Timer on the DIS.
    6. Emergency brake flashing (brake lights and parking lights flash in hard braking)
    7. Enable hidden MMI menu.
    8. DVD SatNav eject lock.

    If you know of any more just add them to the list...

    One more thing, does anyone known if it's possible to enable the BLIP on lock and BLIP BLIP on unlock.
    I had it done to my Golf GTI and it was great...

    I've done all the above apart from 6 - isn't that default.

    The first one I did was add "honk on alarm"

    I've also changed it so that the rear lights are active with the DRLs.

    Where do you get the vag.com kit from?

    What about the passenger mirror dipping when selecting reverse?

    www.ross-tech.com (make sure you're sitting down when you get to the price page)

    Mirror dipping is something that only cars with Comfort pack i.e. memory can do.

    Cheers Scottyuk, stuff paying that. Would be nice to have the needles bounce round on start up and have rear light on with DRL's but not for that price!

    Most people don't buy it for just that.

    Both my TT and my S4 were modified so it's nice to be able to keep a look out for any problems before you have to go to the dealer.

    As an example, on my S4 the car showed no problems. I plugged in my Vag-com and it showed an intermittent loss of signal from a knock sensor. Now since the car was tuned up to nearly 400bhp, knock sensors are quite important! If I hadn't had my vag-com, I'd have run it until the next variable service e.g. 17k miles without knowing. As it was I took it to the dealer and they resolved it under warranty

    Most Vag-com owners will help other people out. This is where car meets are useful. I've done many peoples cars ...although I'm stupid as the most I've ever taken off anyone in payment is a BigMac meal

    A token gesture is normally all that is required as people are not just provinding the tool but f course they're giving up their time as well.

    Many forums have Vag-com sections where owners will post their locations and offer their services. The only this is....just because someone (i.e. me!!) has the tool and can see the disagnostic messages, it doesn't mean they're an engineer and hence they may not know how to solve any issues found but at least you know about them.

    Hi...

    That's great...

    I've a local VW / Audi Independent service garage that I can go to for VAG.com stuff
    Last time I was there for a VAG.com session he charged me £20 + VAT.
    I just need a list of what I need doing for when my car arrives.

    It gives the ability to access lotsa of options that 99% of people don't know what they do

    On top of that you can turn on the car battery level graph so that when you go into CAR you have an extra option which shows the state of the battery. To be honest it's a gadget rather than a feature
