No worries. It must be in the adaption channels so I'll look with ODIS over the next few days and post a screen capture.Hey Ant,
Appreciate you continuing to look into this. If there is anything else you need to assist, please let me know. I tried to look in Adaption Channels but couldnt see anything "obvious" to enable it. I'll take another look though
RE: Soft Power Close doors, sadly not... quite rare for a car to have them here in the UK as a pricey option. I'd love to retro-fit if someone could work out how.
Re soft close doors, I'm thinking of doing the retrofit as I believe our door controllers support this feature (as there are no PR variants in ETKA). Having said that, it is a little expensive as you need:
1. 4 x New door locks that have a connector that links down to the soft close motor. Front doors are LHD and RHD specific so you can't get ones from mainland Europe. I think however that the A8 ones from 2012 onwards are compatible as the non-soft close door locks are actually A8 ones. The soft close ones have a "4M0" part number but obviously as you are replacing the old ones which are A8 variants, the newer A8 ones should fit.
2. 4 x soft close motors. These are the A8 ones.
3. 4 x new black plastic trim that houses the soft close motor
4. 2 pin wire loom from the soft close motor to the door controller per door.
I'll check the exiting door controller with VCDS and see whether it accepts the coding for soft close doors. I wont do the mod if I have to replace them as well.
If door controllers are OK I will most probably do the mod and will write it up on one of the Audi forums.
