I just had my 10,000 mile oil change but also had Vag-com done---- i had the DRL's turned off, i had my windows controled by my remote key so when i lock it all i have to do is hold the lock and all windows close- then when opening hold open and all windows go down, also i got the horn turned off when you lock the car only the lights blink** !!

You really don't need the VagCom to shut the horn off when you turn on your alarm. You can do that from the menu of your display, as well as the windows and locks thing you got done

Windows and locks via the Multi Function Display.... I call bull shit. I did the horn thing, but I am 99% windows can't be done without a VagCom. Tell me how BlackMamba

^^ The only thing I can do with the windows is set is so that if I hold the key in unlock for 2 seconds, the windows (of my choice) will roll down. I can't do it with the key fob though.

So your VW dealer did the VAG-COM tweaks for you? What did they charge you for that?

My car came with all the modifications. I didn't have to pay an extra charge. That is why when I heard of this Vag Com thing I was surprised because I just assumed that everyone had the same options as I did. When I bought my car there was no DRL the windows and locks were already set up and all. No extra charge. Maybe some dealers sell them this way at no extra charge and some others won't.

If there is a way to do the windows from the in car controls I'd like to know. My dealer would'nt do it becuase it turns off the pinch protection and some dumb ass almost cut their finger off with the window.

the unlock and the lock buttons yeah.
I changed somethings like the horn (when unlocking/locking), the windows via remote, and the fogs as DRLs...

I cant really say that the remote controlled windows is that great, lol I never use it. I just close my windows as I am pulling into the parking spot so I don't lose time. I guess its just a cool thing to have to show off :p

normally it does cost you but you can find someone locally to help you but give him a something for the help, a beer maybe...

orrrr you can always buy your own cable for roughly$250(retail)

Last time i was at my dealer i asked them to do this for me with the windows and they looked at me so confused and i had to explain it to them and the "vw certified techs" had no clue and had never heard of it and thus said they couldnt do it so i said oh well ill get it done myself with a vagcom

I did the window thing and it seems like you have to be closer to your car to do it like within 10 yards or so. Does it turn the pinch protector off? I'm going to have to check that when I get off. also runnin fogs as DRLs, speedometer fixed, changed instruments to Euro via coding, flash to pass, coming home and leaving home, seatbelt warning OFF, can now use fogs with highbeams. havent changed the horn confirmation to chirp,

anyone know of a diy on how to do the alarm chirp mod?
