Hi,
I just ordered a new Audi A3 (2021) S-Tronic S-Line 1.5L 110KW. I believe its chassis code is 8Y.
Will I be able to use my Ross-Tech cable?

Thx,
JST

Since you have a current cable (a HEX-V2), yes, it should work. However, "write" functions will not be available in some modules due to SFD.

OK. Now, I haven't touched VCSD for a while (hmmm...3.5 years now) so....what the is SFD?
And do you know where I can find a list of possible modifications?
I'm still driving my Audi A4 2.0 TDI Quattro 140KW 190PS, and the mods I did on this car included for instance signalling from 3 to 4 times, start/stop completely off, Audi lane assist,....
I think I have about 10 mods done on my A4.
So, what can I do on my A3?
I ordered it with the assistance pack, matrix LED, B&O, adaptive damper control, 18" Audi Sport Flag Design rims,....

Please pursue the link in my post.

The new "Mk.8" generation of cars is not as mod or tweak friendly as previous generations.

Pity....
But there must be something....
Signalling from 3 to 4 is one of the mods I think is very useful. 3 is not enough, 5 is too much, 4 is exactly right. :-)

Anyway, thx for clearing this for me, Uwe !
