I could be wrong (and please correct me if I am) but I don't think they do. I was under the impression that it was only the premium trim with the rain sensing washers that will close the sunroof.

Anyone with pkg 1 care to leave their roof open in the rain so we can settle this?

I would volunteer, of course, but it hasn't rained in Phoenix in over 130 days. darn.:biggrin:

Single-side parking light

When parking on a very dark street (for example - no street lightings), to prevent some one stupid hitting your car by accident, you can switch on one single side parking light. The single side paring light only lights on one side (either left or right) of front (small light only) and rear small light, the number plate light is not on, to use as less power as possible.

To switch on the "single side parking light": Turn on either left or right indicator, then switch off the engine and lock the car. Once you locked the car, the direction indicator will no longer be flashing, and the "single side parking light" switched on instead.

They use it more often in Germany....

will the usa ones do this? i tried without locking and nothing happens.

i'll recheck it. ^^

Stop.. No go...

Pressing the brake (sufficient to light the brake lights) at the same time as the accelerator causes the ECU to ignore the accelerator input. This demonstrates the Drive by Wire system
I'm guessing this is a DSG-only characteristic. I heel-toe quite a bit w/ my 6-speed. Even with the brake pedal fully depressed, I still have full function of engine speed through the accelerator pedal.

If you push ECON + rights button near Recirculated air. You will show into each screen in the climatronic several interesting values. If you go to channel 19 you will show in the right screen the speed, rpm, motor temp. The are others interesting channels but by the moment there is no info. To go to another channel just move the left temp selector to move to another subchannel just move the right temp selector.
Any reference to what the other values indicate? :iono:

Dunno, when I was trying to see if my 07 DSG had launch control... it was definitely NOT ignoring the accelerator input when I had the brake pressed.

If you turn the sunroof dial about an 1/8th turn past fully open the sunroof slides all the way back into the roof.

There's no marking on the dial for this and I'm not sure why...

Zone Climate Control Synchronization

if you hold down the AUTO button for three seconds, it will synchronize the temperature setting on both sides of the car to match that of the drivers side. When ever the driver changes his temp setting it will also change it on the passenger side, until a passenger changes their side.
Or just turn off dual and it will change both to diver side control...

We don't have an auto setting in the US. Nor do we have rain sensors. Stop trying to fuck up our cars. :)
Rain sensors are great though - you're missing out there. :biggrin:


I have DSG , sunroof, and bi-xenon.

Can confirm the window trick works a charm here in oz. I use it daily. Only wish I could start the GTI using the remote.

Also can confirm the sunroof sliding all the way back and the headlights (washers / rate depending on speed / reverse).

Have to add I like how the stereo changes volume depending how fast you're going. Useful and stock.

We in the US have those items, most need to be activated with VAGCOM, takes a few minutes. The only thing are the zenon fogs, which we can get the oem kit for but $$$. The radio has a setup section which has that feature too which is reachable without any special tools.
