Found one side effect of coding the cluster for Saudi Arabia: There is a speed warning at 74 MPH. I didn't realize the upper line of the cluster could change color!

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlnjZKRJroI

We set the speed warning in the MFD at 70 to show the difference between the two warnings.

I think the 74 mph speed warning is excellent and I like the seat belt chime. So far I like the Saudi coding.

About rain auto close function I have noticed if my driving side window closing before sunroof. My sunroof will stop closing, even if it is not fully closed. Any one else have this issue?

Maybe try fully opening/closing the sunroof several times? Would this re-set the sensors at either end? Ditto for the door windows?

Gotta love the guy who commented on your video saying, "This is taken in Saudi Arabia."

Does the 74 MPH coincide with 120 kmh max speed?

How did you get in to Saudi on VCDS? Instruments 9> Long Coding> language? Or can you get it via the steering wheel buttons MFD > Language?

You change the long coding on the instruments, then go through the MFD and turn everything back to US units.

Still haven't figured out how to get the single side parking lights working :/

you can have that plesent chime by going to
17-Instruments->Adaptation->Seat Belt Warning - Version 3
And you are not warned when you go over 74mph!

so you dont have to change everything else back to US measurements...

This seems the best place to ask.

Is there any coding for the AC system that would make the Recirculation in Auto Mode be on by default, instead of having to press the button twice each time the car is started?

If you turn on the Rain Sensing Wipers and Auto close feature what happens if your in the car driving and the RSW detects water? Do the windows auto close if your in it?

So say I'm driving and it sprinkles rain, but not enough to roll up the windows. My wipers go on, does the car freak out and try to close the windows and crush me ?

The rain closure only operates when the car is off and locked.

Thumbs up

For those, like myself, that love these features, however, have no idea how to implement them is there a "newbie" type of scenario/how-to? I'm asking because I'd love to enable some of the features like the auto sensing, heated seat memory, etc but don't have a cable (???) or the software (???) that it takes.

Someone mind explaining what it takes? I believe it's a cable and software but is that something a normal person can purchase without spending ton of $$$$ on it?

Thank you and sorry for such a newbie question.

Welcome Newbie!

Go to the first post in this very thread. Click on every link in that post. There is a link that will take you to the very place (Ross-tech) you need to go to purchase that 'special cable' (micro-can) to operate the software (downloaded from Ross-tech) known as VCDS.
