Vcds?

Anyone on here play around with VCDS coding on the Q3 yet? I'm interested to see what is possible to enable via some simple coding changes.

For those of you that don't know what I'm referring to: http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/index.html

For example, on my 2011 Volkswagen GTI I was able to enable a gauge sweep when the ignition is turned on, rolling up/down the windows via key fob, disabling the daytime running lights, and enabling the European headlight switch for city lights and rear fogs. There are tons of other possibilities hidden within this program, I'm excited to see if anyone on here finds any hidden gems I might be investing in a cable soon for both our cars, so I'll update if I do & find anything neat!

Your existing cable - if the current one, and I believe it should be for your VW - will work fine. I am pretty versed in VAG-COM and have a good friend who is a programmer for RossTech, so will be exploring soon as I get my Q3 to play with ...

I've done many codes on my Audis so far and look forward to the same and more for the Q - stay tuned -

Subscribed, really interested in what exactly can be accessed. Is there any risk of voiding warranty or the like from playing around in VCDS?

Depends on your dealer, what you're messing around with and how much you know about what you're doing. Basically, without some care, you CAN mess some things up, Audi can fix it, but they may not be very happy about it AND they may/can charge you for the fix...

But most things are reasonably safe, even though Audi may undo some/all of them each time THEY scan/code your car. My dealer knows me, knows/saves my changes and keeps them for me. I have a substantially re-coded ECM and they know to NOT scan or code it.

@CocoPops - interesting : where's a couple modules in the detail, i.e. 4 - Steering Angle - Drive Select and 46 - Central Conv - BCM? Seems they're fine but the detail blocks have disappeared in your scan log...

Pass.

Not sure why, that was just a full autoscan.

I'll try and see what happens if I run it again.

Thanks - btw, Misano is such a GREAT color - please post a few pics in your garage. My good friend has a Misano RS6(C5) and it's so perfect for that large sedan - saloon. And, I just drove a new S3 in Austin that Audi is raffling off this weekend at COTA (yes I bought tickets of course), and it looks good too - would love a peek at your car...
