    Interest check: Low cost carbon fiber interior trimmings for 8V

    I'd be interested in the red stitch trim, do you have an example of how it looks? In the UK a few press RS3's had carbon trim but it wasn't an option on early cars. I believe it is an option now, but piano black is standard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Would depend on Quattro vs FWD rather than DS surely?

    Oh sorry, misread. I really like it. You have to get quite close for it to kick in, so it doesn't annoy you in traffic etc as you shouldn't be stopping that close behind someone else. One of the best tweaks I've done. I also missed it from my Mrs Octavia vRS Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You should find it in DJ Alix's PDF linked in his sig. Rear DRLs are just the normal rear lights as if you had them on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is it as simple as you want it on the highest setting (biggest bar, flicked towards the end of the stalk)? The only issue I find is if the car has a wet screen at ignition on it sometimes needs a jog to do the initial wipe, but after that max sensitivity is fine and sometimes I even turn it...

    MagRide & VCDS

    Watching this as I plan to H&R my RS3 with mag ride. I found on other threads relating to using these channels to adjust A6/S6 suspension there is a max of 17mm adjustment. Here for example. I suspect there will be a value smaller than the 20-30mm we need to enter here too. Let us know what...

    Reversing camera coding help

    From discussing this a few weeks ago it's not simple. I'd suggest you contact Advanced In-Car Tech as I know they've managed it before after some extended fiddling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No. Rules say all indicators must flash in phase, the only exception being motorbikes which may flash front/rear alternately. That said, I and many others have had this enabled for some time with no trouble. Probably indicated in front of 7-8 cops and nothing. It's unlikely they know the law...

    8V VCDS Mods

    I've seen a number of cars royally messed up and not fixable with VCDS after people have gone poking and then not being able to revert the changes. Dealers have had to flash the cars back to factory at some cost! Rosstech (for the known ones) do put warnings in the long coding helper, but there...

    http://www.kwsuspensions.net/kw-ddc-ecu-coilovers-inox-41418.html These claim to work with factory fit Drive Select - no mention of RS3 on the compatibility but it could be as they haven't updated it yet. Might be worth getting in touch with KW to see what they say about a delete 'module'.

    Some mag/electronic suspension delete kits come with a plug you replace the shock absorb connection with - the plug fools the car into thinking the mag ride is still installed. Not sure if you can get it for the 8V, but have seen it on many other VAG platforms.

    I haven't tried it, but it could be linked to the parking sensor switch off threshold (which is configurable with VCDS). I actually increased mine as it annoyed me having to reactivate them when doing multi-story car parks and wanted the security of knowing I wasn't going to scrape the front in...

    Same with mine. Doesn't reduce the radio volume either. I prefer it as it is though. Would be annoying otherwise.
