Anyone on here know if it is possible to enable the oil level and battery gauge in the MMI-3G+ units?
Before I try to program this in engineering mode and vagcom I wanted to see if anyone on here had any success achieving this.
Please let me know.
Thanks.

oil level = yes
battery gauge = no

The oil level you whould be able to enable in the green menu. I have it on mine.

Battery gauge - I've read somewhere they removed it since it didn't give the correct information for some reason. It's only possible on 2G units.

You can still enable the battery gauge on some, however there were problems with what that gauge showed and customer expectations. In short, when displaying the "true" battery state customers would often be confused (i.e. why it ain't fully charged). They then decided to add an artificial threshold (similar to the coolant temperature gauge platform function) up until it would show 100% at all times - therefor making it sort of useless.
