Default Audi/VW summertime window mod

Hey everyone, so thereís this oem mod that is in the computer already that allows one to put down the windows by double tapping your remote. Itís only oem in Europe and has to be activated through a computer module system called VCDS. Is this something that I could easily do? Is there a guy I can slip a $20 too and he could help me out? Itís a super small mod that I feel ads a lot of convenience. Very new to modding cars. Please be kind.

Thanks,
Colby Keating

It is easy to do. You just have to find someone near you with VCDS (or a similar tool). There are VCDS owner locator links in several places or you could post in your local sub-forum asking for nearby VCDS owners. You probably don't want to drive to Las Vegas, so I could do it for you.


Have Fun!

You can easily do this (and a lot of other cool tweaks) with the Carista app and a $20 OBD WiFi or Bluetooth scanner (I use one from Veepeak I bought on Amazon).

I have VCDS and I do this kind of thing all the time for people for free. If you were close I would do it. Check the list for someone near you.

About 10 people listed around Orlando area. Our site map locator seems to be broken currently.

If you want to drop by my place, I'd do it for free as well.
Of course, I'm located on the exact opposite end of the continent, but hey - it's a nice summer drive!

Seriously, though - I'm sure you'll be able to find another TDI owner near you willing to help you in exchange for, at most, a refreshing, icy-cold beverage.

What these guys said - I just thought I'd complete the tour by providing a location in New England!

Cheers,
