The dealership won't do it as it would mean disabling settings that are there for safety reasons. Plenty of threads talk about this.Seems like many on this forum would like to make changes in the factory settings-chimes, lights, rev limiter etc. Is it worth getting a VAG-COM to make these changes yourself or is it better to get the dealership to do it? Thank.
Im doing 2 member's S5 today actually and I did one on Friday but im in Boston.... if your ever in the area let me know.If you don't want to purchase the $350 cable, you can likely find someone nearby who has the cable and will do the mods for you. If you don't find anyone on this forum, you can do a search for someone who has the cable using http://vagcomlocator.com. Since the cable is used on Audi and VW cars, you should be able to find someone in your area.
