So I've seen everything that's possible with the Vag-Com cables and software, but i'm curious to hear from you guys from all those various things, what have you ACTUALLY done and use on your A5/S5?

I'll start:
- Roll windows down with key (and moonroof raise)
- Remove the front headlights wink on turn signal
- Audi Drive Select - Default to Individual
- Remove seat belt chime

I think that was it for me....so let's hear yours!

Don't want to be a drag on your post, but most people put their VAC-COM updates in their signature. :thumbsup:

Cheers

i've seen that, but you don't think it would be convenient to have a thread where at least people like you that do it reply, so that we have it all in one place instead of having to look at each thread?

Plus, i'm equally interested to hear what folks' feelings on them are.

For example, initially i didn't do the Sealt Belt chimer, and i super regretted it. Or if i did a mod that i used way more than i ever thought i would.

Hi
Can I ask what the Audi Drive select does changing it to individual? - is this on all A5's?

Thanks

nope, it's an addon package (although i think u can get it on an S5 through VAG-COM)

But basically the VAG-COM tweak lets me have the car start up automatically on the "Individual" setting (by default it's AUTO, so then you always have to manually change it). So with Individual, i can go into my car setup and adjust the engine, steering & suspension, and then it's like that every time i start it up!

Seems like a good idea actually, I would just request that you attach the best link on how to do so beside each one. That way it would really be one stop shopping to get anyone started.

I was told that the ambient lighting is only available with full MMI when i spoke to the dealer.

Is this the case?

I managed to find a full or nearly full list of vag-com mods and procedures which I have on my pc at home.

Ones I have done or had done are:-

Needle sweep on start up
Battery meter indicator in MMI (of no use really)
DRL wink on on indication
Activated healdight washers pump V11 after retrofit
Xenon headlights programmed from halogens
one touch unlocking (Cant stand double click on key ring) or this may be via MMI screen.

Agree & my list

Agree with the VAG COM Enthusiast page, most everything is there. My list is in the signature (after I figured out how to do it) :wall:
