    2003 Audi A4 B6 2.0 FSI

    My car went in for it's annual service on Thursday, this time to an independant VAG specialist instead of a dealer to avoid any risk of the NOx emissions "fix" being accidentally applied to the ECU of my car by a dealer. The courtesy car I got was a 15 year old workhorse of an Audi A4 but I...

    Number Of Registered VCDS Users?

    Something I've always wondered is how many registered users there currently are in the world of genuine VCDS interface cables. Can anyone at RT provide those stats, maybe breakdown by cable type and also registered VCDS Lite users? Of course, if this information is deemed confidential to RT...

    VCDS Auto-Scan Module List Query

    Quick question. When an Auto-Scan is done, at the top it lists a load of module numbers. Is VCDS using some kind of intelligence to gather this list or is it simply just looking in the CAN Gateway "Installation List" for any items that have been ticked as being installed? Chassis Type: 1P...

    LED Bulb Coding - License Plate Light Without Pulse Width Modulation Option

    In preparation for replacing the license plate incandescent bulbs in my car with LED bulbs instead, I thought it would probably be a good idea to actually test the switching off of the "Lamp Monitoring (Cold) License Plate Lamps active" option first which on my 5K0937087R BCM is Bit 6 of Byte...

    New Toy For My MFD

    Look what turned up today :D I've been thinking about getting one of these for quite a while and finally took the plunge. I'm sure others have already seen or know what these devices are all about but it will be nice to be able to see some real-time data directly in my MFD. I must admit that I...

    Used HEX-USB Just Sold for 260 GBP - WTF?

    I don't get it. Why would anyone pay 260 GBP for a used 13 year old HEX-USB (which would cost another 99 USD on top of that for registration transfer and support) that can't even do CAN diagnostics when you can get an all singing all dancing 3-VIN version of the HEX-V2 for 225 GBP with support...

    How To Identify ECU Software Version With VCDS?

    My car is due to go to the dealer in the next few weeks for a service and while I intend to get them to sign an agreement form stating that they will not touch the engine ECU software on my car (I do not want them going anywhere near my car with the emissions fix software), I want before and...

    Lorry vs Caravan

    This is doing the rounds at the moment and happened on one of the UK's busiest motorways a couple of days ago (ignore the date/time in the corner of the video as it's incorrect). The comments at the bottom of the video probably speak for themselves :D And a longer version here...

    Is the dealer lying to me?

    Long story short, I've had an ongoing fault with the interior monitoring sensor for my alarm. It's now been to the dealer 3 times to get it repaired under warranty, but every time the car has just come back with the same fault again even though on each occasion the dealer says they have fixed...

    SEAT Leon Mk2 - Setting the Service Reminder Interval back to Flexible Schedule

    I have a 2012 SEAT Leon FR which is based on the Golf VI platform. Due to my impatience and misunderstanding of how the MFD service status works following a service, I have now inadvertently set the service reminder in my car from a flexible long life service schedule to a fixed service...
