I have a couple of questions regarding clusters, gateways, and was wondering if someone on here might be able to enlighten me.

1) Is the functionality between the following clusters the same, or is there a difference ie., Assistants menu or other capabilities

5N0920883C SW:611 (This is just a color cluster, but not 3D)
5N0920883E SW:703 (This is a 3D cluster)
5N0920883G SW:1008 (This is a 3D cluster, but apparently different manufacturer than the previous version)

2) Is it possible to update the 5N0920883C with 703 software or greater?

3) Can anyone suggest some affordable tools for reading and writing flash on VW modules? For example, if you need to flash a gateway 7N0907530AS to 7N0907530BC.

4) Where can someone find firmware that can be flashed? I could surmise, that simply reading the flash from a newer device, and ensuring hardware is matching, would work as one source.

Obviously the dealer can do some, if not all of the above.

1) You already mentioned the differences.
2) No it will render your cluster useless.
3) VAG CAN Professional
4) Reading flash from ECU is very complicated. You can get flash files from the VW or Audi Flash discs.

It is possible to upgrade cluster SW. Not by me, but it is possible. Sameway is possible to upgrade SW06xx to 0705 etc.... to get 3D.

Hello

The files flash could be downloaded on the "erwin" after ti have create account

You could update the firmware with many tools like VagCanPro or VAS or Odis or AVDI

I have upgrade my audi B8 gateway with AVDI without problem
