@stefan147: Hi. I'm guessing but IMO, it would be very surprising if it was possible to select just parts from a standard VC screen to substitute into another VC screen version. At best, I suspect that you will need to accept the entire VC screen arrangement from a different, standard version (if it's possible at all).

Again, I'm guessing of course - but perhaps a possible option might be to change the software switches for the Vehicle variant in the upper nibble of Byte 2 on the hex17 module. My logic assumes that it's these Bit-strings that determine the standard VC screen arrangement for various models.

So, if you know the hex value of Byte 2, Bits 3-7 from the VC screen that you want, you might try using this setting on your hex17 module - perhaps? I note that Byte 2, Bits 3-7 on your car has the value hex28 - which means Vehicle variant, derivative 6.

Once more, my hypothesis is nothing more than the mental musings of an interested (and intrigued) forum member -it's total supposition really!!

Thank you Don. We got nothing to lose so I will give it a go. The thing with Vehicle Variant though is that it may change the model displayed or the speedo/tach numbering. Am I wrong?

The weird thing is that I have seen pictures of the display I want on many different models from 1.6tdi to Cupra but never with a full scan to help me copy it.

Likely not!!!
But by fact of sheer logic - if:

is true (and if my hypothesis is also correct) - there should be a version of "Vehicle variant, derivative" that should obviate your fears -I think, maybe?
