Memorize driver's seat position to key

Has anyone with access to vag/vcds tried to activate driver's seat memory, so that same can be stored in the remote keys? (There is considerable discussion in other Audi forums of users with " electrical" seats activating this function).

I'm confused. If there are alterations that can be done to the car's settings - such as memory seat and mirrors folding, etc., then why can't the Audi dealer just program it in?

Software is one thing, hardware is another. The Q3 does not have the hardware to do it... I don't know if i have the terms correct but there is a memory seat module and the appropriate wiring which neither are there. Roger has a really good thread on this issue....

Mainly because most car manufacturers don't completely write a new set of code for every model. There is a base set of code that they can use on multiple models to turn on and off modules as required. There is not an expectation that most users will ever be able access this base code and it isn't even even possible without a special tool and software.
