OK, you have me intrigued.

Does this hidden (green) menu save fuel, reduce emissions, buy carbon offsets or something green like that? Or some other type of green stuff?? Turn the Q3 into a Hulk-mobile maybe?

Nahhh, none of that stuff - it's just literally a monochrome green (actually light and dark green) screen. >:D

Okay, but it must be for something other than being green. Some type of secret screen for engineers to play with the background coding or something like that.

If it doesn't actually add any features then why is it called MMI 3G green screen?

It's called the green screen on all current Audis. It is intended to review and remark features and options on the car that correlate with the car's programming. It's NOT intended to be used by the consumer for additional 'features' - think of it as your PC's DOS window (Command Prompt) or Task Manager compared with its GUI Control Panel ...

OK, but what kind of stuff can you do with it if you are in the know. Can you add in some cool programs or something like that? Reminds me of "unlocking" your phone.

To complement this post. I try to change the channel 6 and never is accepted, but I discover that in some models you use the same procedure as described by Roger but instead of the Channel 6 use the Channel 5, and it works 0:)

Good catch - mine was already enabled and I did not need to adapt this channel's value. I'll make a note in the original post -

Thanks ...
