Consumption Correction

If you have done manuel calculation on the cars consumption and you can see the numbers do not align with the cars calculations, you can change the numbers. This requires the big instrument cluster and works for all A3 8P models.

Please be aware that this will also have influence on the actual consumption, average consumption, etc.

Default is 100 (which is a percent value).
You can change it it to for example 105, which would be 105%

Highest value: 115%
Lowest value: 85%





Tire Pressure Monitoring

In the instrument cluster you can activate the display of tire pressure monitoring. This requires no new parts but it however only available for A3 8P models from 2010 and later.

After coding the feature it can be enabled/disabled in the D.I.S. (The feature will however not be working before 100% driven kilometers after enabling)

Gearshift Indicator

The instrument cluster will display the recommended gearshift at the bottom of the cluster if enabling this feature.

The feature requies D.I.S. See the guide of retrofitting D.I.S. here.

This feature is available for all A3 8P models from 2010 and later. Your Body Control Module however needs to support the feature.

Comfort Menu

Activating the Comfort Menu gives you access to oil temperature, enable/disable rear wiper and cornering lights.

This feature can be enabled for all A3 8P models but D.I.S. is required. See the guide of retrofitting D.I.S. here.
