Thanks for this sub forum, very useful.

I purchased the Ross-Tech device and have successfully programmed some of the tweaks listed here in my Q3. However, there are a few I'd like to do which I can't find. Can anyone help point me to the right codes?

1. Is it possible to show the current gear number at the bottom of the driver display next to the D or S? I know this is possible in other Audi models but I can't find it in the Q3.

2. Separate out the rear turn signals from the stop lights. I hate that they come on together.

3. Needle 'sweep' on start up?

I'm in Austin TX and happy to make the VCDS system available to anyone local who'd like to use it.

Well, I can point you to 2 of the 3 and really just don't know about the 3rd (your number 1) yet - will do a little research and hopefully find it - it used to be part of the MMI settings, so that may make it a little challenge ...

and THANKS for your offer to help anyone in your area with VCDS - nice work and camaraderie !!

Try this for number 2 :

btw, PM me an email if you're interested in a VERY special Audi Motorsports Experience at COTA in September when the WEC cars are here - believe me, it WILL be worth it !!! You'll need to join the ACA first though - so cough that up ;)

Hope you can help here,
Face lift Q3 with active lane assist, wish to activate the speed limit display.


Also have the Xenon plus headlights which include (ROW) LED rear lights, I understand to convert them over to the dynamic rear indicators this is also a coding issue.


Any idea the coding required or where to start?


Thanks,
Stitch
I am located in Australia with a ROW spec facelift Q3 TDI.

First, welcome to our forum - perhaps the best Q3 forum out there - at least I think so. Second, unfortunately I cannot comment much on the facelift cars as we don't have them yet (although about 100 are at US ports awaiting release (to catch up with 2015s still arriving - go figure) and we'll have to wait at least another 3-4 weeks to see our first ones.

As far as I know we do not have active lane assist (we have the passive version) as an option, so I cannot also comment on your request to display the data/speed limit for it. Also, what I do know of the dynamic rear signals there is an additional module for this that must be coded into the Central Electronics (J519) via VCDS, but again, I do not have the specifics yet. I think a few folks in Germany and the UK are doing this now, and can prolly be of some help - I am hopeful that some of our UK/EU members will pick up on your post and respond ...

When I can get more info or a car to scan, I'll post some more info - sorry.

I can see active lane assist coming out in the future as audi needs more to keep them ahead and keep the Q3 fresh, just not sure when that'll happen.

Thanks Roger,
I have just received the Q3 so I am testing the waters to see how to improve some features.


Yes I would have to agree with you on this being the best Q3 forum, I had moved over from a VW Touareg and was blessed with Club Touareg for advice and information. The best I could find in my local area were mainly Q5 or A3 forums which are not that much helpful.


Lets hope some of the first buyers of the facelife models have an interest on how the cars operate.

Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 platforms. Just left the 2011 V6 TDI. Very nice ride but I now need something smaller for just the two of us. The Q3 ticked all the boxes and was very simular to the Touareg's setup.

I would love to see how we can do the dynamic turn signal mod for 2016 prestige models...the little line instead of everything lighting up

So you want less light in the turn signal? I think the sequential is so cool!

The same VCDS coding should accomplish this - but I have not confirmed. Just note which bytes you're changing and change them back if you don't like it - no harm no foul... The dynamic part is handled by another control module -

Ross-Tech: What do I need to buy?

I found the Ross-Tech store to be confusing. First, most of Audi related products indicate that they work on MY09 and earlier and the Q3 is not listed, yet I know that several forum members have been scoping MY15 Q3s. There also appears to be plethora of products and I just want to be able to do some of the mods outlined on the forum. So what do I need?

Enable VIM on RMC

Someone has been able to enable VIM on RMC system? Many hints are available for MMI 3G but for RMC looks like the only way is to buy a dongle to unblock the video.
Problem is that on RMC I cannot find the serial number neither using VAG neither using the hidden menu

Any help?
