I've enabled the rain sensor, awhile back, but yet to test the other feature with the sunroof, etch. All in all the rain sensor works pretty well - sometimes too good.
I did make some mods in adding features like the seat belt chime, showing the console in both metric and miles, among other stuff. Works like a charm.

auto wipers is priceless..yeah sometimes it does a single sweep when it is not raining..could be due to direct sunlight reflection or whatever..
but for the auto close...it does not always work, sometimes no windows close..or only the front windows do...but really it is a none issue to me as I do not plan on leaving windows down or sunroof open...makes no sense..too risky

cheers

Both auto rain wipers and sunroof/window closing works off of the RLS Rain Sensors. As others mentioned, its always a hit or miss thing., has to some something with the Sensor itself.

One thing i noticed was, ever since i replaced my windshields (stock windshield broked) replaced with a OEM equivalent one, which doesnt have the light green tint as the original glass.

Replacement Glass seems to work better with the RLS., the sensing is more responsive and works better now.

Thinking that there should be a VCDS setting to adjust the sensor threshold.

I've seen a picture somewhere showing EGT in the MFD. Can that be enabled, or is additional hardware required? Would be a nice way to watch for a DPF purge. I can't use Torque, because I don't have an Android phone, and not going to get one just for that.

I was aware of that one. Wasn't sure if that was the only way. Thanks!

I just picked up a Passat SEL and read that there is no way to keep the car running with the remote start which sucks. Is there any way to extend the run time. 10 minutes is a joke.

I too have an SEL and never wished for extended run time, but simply the ability to unlock once started. Idling these motors is just wear and tear, plus probably going add to the clogging up your DPF filter.

Installed a Frost heater @ 500 miles and I've been happy every time I get in my car on a cold day after plugging in.

I will most likely pick up a frostheater for my 10' jetta and my new Passat, I wanted longer run times for when I cant plug it in. It would be nice to have the temp gauge move some when I get in it after working a 16hr day in the cold.

I'm sure it's easy to picture in your head but I'll take a picture before I leave work tonight.
people normally install our white Fog LEDs which match the DRLs:

So is there anyway to extend run time with VCDS when using the remote start.

I have a passat b7 2.0tdi bluemotion 170bhp MY2011 Comfortline in India.. The problem is i'm not able to activate Horn confirmation on lock/unlock even after enabling if from VCDS 15.7,Activate/Deactivate Blinking Confirmation works without issue. Also Staging/indicator celebration does not work it says Error:Channel Not available.Although many of my friends in India have activated these features on their passat, Jetta and Polo but i dont understand why i can't enable them in my Car.
Can anyone help please..

Has anyone figured out how to enable the flashing CHMSL?

I see the 14's (or maybe the 15's) has the function enabled that will flash the CHMSL when you apply the brakes. I can't figure it out on my 13....
