For any local Toronto A5/S5 owners, I have located a dealer with a VAG-COM cable at a cost of $359. Does anyone already own one they are willing to share so we can make those DRL and voice-command mods in Toronto?? I don't really want to spend the money on a new cable unless I have to.

Hey Omega - send me an email with your personal information so we can connect. I bought the cable today and already made some of the changes. We can negotiate to cover costs with at least one other A5 owner I know that is interesed as well

Ragazzi, send me an email so we can chat about details. I have purchased the cable last week ($400) and made the 4 changes already to my A5
- no more winking DRL
- voice activation turned on
- seat belt chime turned off
- windows controlled by key fob
I live in Etobicoke so not far for you to travel.

Have you guys had success with your mods? I have a US S5 and live in Toronto. Can one of you help me with the modifications if the dealer won't do it?

TorDoc, glad to help out. I have modified a number of A5/S5 owners already so you are welcome to join the gang. Send me an email with your contact info and we can schedule a date/time.

Frank,

Do you have the black A5 that I occasionally see driving in the Kingsway/Islington area? Every time I see it, my wife says that I get a big smile on my face.

I may need your help when my car finally arrives...called the dealer today...hopefully Oct/Nov.

--I can't stand being soooooo patient!!!

No one asked me about doing the vagcom mods in the Montreal area, yet I see many A5 with the "lazy eye" problem!

I'd be very happy to do the vagcom mods to anybody with the A5/S5 in the Montreal area!

Done and done

Frank - thanks for doing the mods for me. I'm still trying to figure out the voice activation menu, and need to make sure that I don't roll down the windows and open the sunroof by mistake, but all is well.

Best thing for me is that I often leave the sunroof open, and then have to go back to the car, get inside, turn on the electronics, and close the roof. Now, I just hold the lock button from afar and the roof closes. Plus, my girlfriend doesn't tell me my front lights are busted when I have my signal on!

Hi Frank,

I too am very interested in the vag-com modifications that you've done. I saw a new A4 the other day and the DRL lights blinked on-off when he was signaling.

When I finally take delivery of my A5, i would be willing to pay for the use of the cable and your know-how. I'm not far from ya in the Toronto area.
