    1998 Audi A4 1.9tdi

    Hi All.
    What level of vcds do I need to do things like resetting the air bags, deleting the EGR and bringing the glow plugs on at a higher temp (to run veg oil) and adding cruise control.
    I run win10 so needs to be compatible with that.

    No version of VCDS can "delete" EGR. I do not think you can influence the glow plugs much either. You would need someone to modify the ECU software, which VCDS does not do.

    A registered version of VCDS-Lite would be sufficient for clearing codes, adding cruise control, and pretty much everything else a diagnostic tool can do on that car.

    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.
