Ah the wait is over, picked mine up this morning. So pleased I had the brake calipers painted black, they look sweet behind the black wheels. Neatest feature I've just discovered so far is on my electric seats, the head rests are electrically adjustable.
Already plugged the car into vcds and activated the alarm chirp when you lock the car. Will get some pics posted soon.
At black stud... Got my car going into audi Friday to have them look at recoding the ambient light settings, keep you posted or maybe others can answer how there ambient lighting behaves?
INTERIOR AMBIENT LIGHTING CONTROL (3G MMI HIGH FL MODELS)
Thought I'd share this as this isn't as straightforward as earlier cars:
1 - Using VCDS
To enable Ambient Lighting.
[09 â Cent. Elect.]
[Coding - 07] -> Long Coding Helper -> Byte 16 Bit 6 - Set this bit manually to "1" - (1 = active) - there is a checkbox for this on latest version of VCDS so you can check it rather than change coding string.
Now (if you haven't done it previously) unlock the hidden menu for the MMI 3g and activation of the footwell lighting
Select STG 5F (Infotainment)
Channel number 06 set to to "1"
You've now done with VCDS so turn that off as we need to access the next set up changes via the MMI unit:
2 - Using hidden MMI Menu
The Hidden Menu is enabled using combination of the following keys 'Menu' & 'Car' (both keys together), and hold down for about 4-5 seconds until 'green menu' appears.
To enable Interior Light in MMI Hidden Menu
-> car -> cardevicelist
-> car -> carmenuoperation -> Interior Light -> value to 5
FOR the new facelift models (2012 onward) you must also make the following change:
-> car / carbusassignment (set the value of interior light to CAN comfort set by scrolling the options - there are many)
3 - Perform MMI reset
MMI reset (facelift) Press and hold the function button -1 - (Menu), the confirmation button -2 -, as well as the navigation button -3 -. simultaneously The MMI then goes down and restarts Takes about 60 seconds.)
When the system reboots you should be confronted with a menu in the MMI like this (In the Car systems menu)
If you do it wrong (like I did last night), it will look like this:
And voila you have permanent LED footwell lighting (which uses very little energy). I changed Audi's single LED bulb to Trups' 4 LED version to give a bit more light. Will report on what that is like in due course.
BlackEd what dealer are you with mine is Swindon Audi I'm having an absolute nightmare with them been told they can't do anything until 10 days have passed which I don't believe for a minute. Might give Audi UK a call it's been sitting down Sheerness since 3rd March..We've had an A6 stuck at port too, was built 19/02 and still not at the dealer
