    The video is from an A4 B8 - not an A4 B9

    On the B8 you can use what DV52 has written - on the B9 you can't use VCDS, you need another cable, e.g. VCP or OBDeleven

    You A4 is a B9 - so you can not use VCDS for enabling VIM.

    But just to explain how it works on an A4 B8:

    [EDIT] Thanks, but we really don't want VIM instructions here in this forum. [/EDIT]

    [EDIT] That is fine with me - but I didn't write anything new, then what DV52 had already written - I only set up the steps in a more readable way. - Please be more consistent in what is allowed and what is not! [/EDIT]

    rlarsen: I suspect that the resulting confusion was one of my making - mea culpa (as we ex-catholics say )

    Whilst I knew that Ross-Tech held a particular view about VIM - I wasn't aware that there was a forum prohibition on explaining how it could be implemented.

    Now that I have become aware of my faux-pas - I have deleted my offending post

    My apology (to you and to RT)

    Don

    Edit:It is with a degree of trepidation that I write the following: I acknowledge and I totally agree that Ross-Tech has (and should have) complete control over what is allowed and what is not allowed on their forum. But I remain mystified as to why there is this apparent forum restriction on discussion about VIM. Yes, there is the safety factor for those folk that are idiotic enough to watch a video while driving, but really ....... is it morally, or legally reasonable for this forum to provide a nanny role against such foolhardy behavior? It's worth noting (I think) that there are other reasons than the driver watching videos for wanting to enable VIM.

    If I may be allowed to use an analogy - should we ban the use of knives in society because they can be used to harm/kill people?

    Or, (and I use this second analogy without any intent of offense to the forum's administrators) - how does the forum standard on VIM sit against the forum's "advice on weaponry" thread -which whilst I'm not a gun person, I nevertheless find to be extremely interesting (not because of the technical discussion - but rather because of the thinking process of the authors)?

    Again, without intending any offense - is not the same "nanny" role that appears to underpin the forum prohibition on VIM equally applicable to the "advice on weaponry" thread - for which there is no forum prohibition? And I'm sure that if I looked carefully through the other threads on this forum, I could find further discussion topics that might fall into the same category.

    The point that I'm (respectfully) trying to make is that there is a correct and proper role for censorship on any forum - but, IMHO, the rules for this function need to be consistently applied and cogently argued (and ultimately, reasonably interpreted by the forum administrators)

    hmm......... hope I don't get sent to the naughty-corner for expressing my views!!

    Apologies. I must have missed that.

    It's not any kind of personal conviction, but rather an effort to keep the lawyers from knocking on our doors when something bad happens to a car that's playing a movie at speed.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
