    I notice on my i40 T6 that the dials done sweep on start up, but my 150ps does not. Anyone with euro 6 models get dial sweep. can it be done with the vcds ??

    Bit of a gimmick but i liked it :D

    Thanks @mark i did see your comment on it before but i was not sure if the my17 model was different as i have notice some differences in the way it works already.
    I am making a list of changes to get done with vcds . Any more good tweeks ??

    list so far
    Auto lock/unlock
    Teardrop wipe
    Dash MPH
    Lower speed on HBA
    DRLS coming home lights (instead of headlights)
    Rain closing (not sure that one works from what i have read)
    Rear wiper off when reversing
    auto fold mirrors............only joking :slow rofl:

    A lot of stuff is in the adaption list.

    The dial sweep is called - 'Instrument celebration'

    A like the sound of some of these "tweaks"......but could vw use it to wriggle out of a warranty claim.......just a thought? Is anyone near north Leeds/Wetherby/Harrogate area with a good understanding of all this vcds voodoo stuff who fancies a few beer tokens for doing some of these?

    Does anyone know the VCDS code route for "Instrument Celebration"?
    Never had it on a car, but did have it on motorbikes. One of those simple things that makes you smile.

    Well after having a bit of a mad moment i took the plunge and purchased a vcds kit. I am a bit dangerous when its come to this kind of thing as i have said before, but after having a kind offer from @Loz to help and some support from @Pauly, Thank you, i decided to give it a go...........

    Managed to get dial sweep working and MPH on the dash, now that's amazing for me !

    oh dont no what to try next :)......best not get to cocky as it will all end up in trouble :slow rofl:

    Excellent, I know where to come if I struggle to get mine to 'sweep'.
    Gonna have to get Pauly to give you the magic VCDS tag on your profile.

    I do not recommend you letting me anywhere near your van with a lead and laptop! it would be a mistake, I'm really not safe
    As for a badge, I think not, anyone is welcome to borrow the lead but best I don't mess.

    I activated that on mine, and within 30 seconds the wife had put her foot down and told me to change it back "immediately". Ohhhh I do like a forceful lady. ;)

    Have been thinking about taking the plunge with vcds. Its just the price tag of the lead. Fancy having the dial sweep, teardrop wipe and the beep on lock/unlock.

    I think it's the force in me :)

    Mmm I don't do beeps neither

    I had mine from Marshalls Industrial Direct it's not cheap but as I will be keeping it for years I'm sure I will get my money's worth out of it.
