Which VAGCOM mods are your favo(u)rite (depending on which English you use)?

The ability to close the windows and sunroof OR open windows (doesn't open sunroof) by holding the lock/unlock buttons on the remote. A big plus when it's hot and you can roll down the windows to begin cooling the car. Or when it's pouring rain and you can close the windows and/or sunroof without having to run out in the rain.

yeah you can open the glass roof by remote too. Once it's unlocked with the VAG you can go into the MMI settings and select the roof too.
My favs are in my sig :2thumbsup:

Is it possible to use the DRL as the blinker...instead of the amber side markers? So that when you hit the blinkers from inside the car, the amber side markers stay lit and the DRL blinks....?

Idk why, but i think that would be against DOT regulations.. just a thought.. i think amber has to be the color.

all of them...so far discovered

...especially convenience key opening of windows/sunroof, closing of windows/sunroof and auto fold mirrors...and the naughty ones - disable seatbelt chime (for those brief moments) and vid in motion.

Strange - I didn't have to use VAGCOM to set the windows or the roof open with the remote.. From memory it was a setting in the MMI.. In any case, this is great because I can be sure my black car loses all the hot air before I get in..

I will eventually get a ross cable so that I can enable the really cool stuff like the battery meter...

Has to be needle sweep first because it's there everytime you turn the ignition and remind you why you bought Vag-Com, followed by voice command as it was not even an option for cabs regardless of variant (A5/S5) although it can be temperamental with SatNav it works great with the phone.

Just my twopenneth....

Cheers

xxup,

Good point - it seems pending on your market area or MY, some of the bells and whistles are activated (or not)...in my case, needle sweep was stock - Mulski used Vagcom to activate his, and you're absolutely right about it being a great feature letting the car ventilate before stepping in - especially with an S-Line interior. VCDS is a must for A5/S5 enthusiasts! :)

What is ads? I don't know the acronym. I'll probably know it and then feel stupid for not realizing what it meant.

ADs = Audi Drive Select which means adjustable steering, suspension, engine and the sports diff if fitted.

There has been observed posts of members not being able to do everything that the true Ross-Tech cable can do. I strongly recommend taking the plunge and spending the $300+ for the actual cable. It will truly pay for itself in the various ways you can personalize your car.
