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. ^^

That's also a Euro option only. VAG can fix this though.

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.

Any reference to what the other values indicate?

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...

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.


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.

All North American GTI's come with xenons stock. The rest of the world has to pay to get xenons on their GTI.

Well.. Xenon's and Bi-Xenons are diff.. the Bi-Xenons work for both low beam and high beam.. regulare Xenon's (non Bi-Xenons) are only low beam. But yes, im pretty sure that all us models are Bi-Xenon.

All US models are Bi-Xenon.

Anyone have a link to the Xenon Fogs?

I guess the only reason to "click" the turn signal would be if you were stopped and turning.
Cars have been like this for years now. It did it in the MKIII My 95 chevy blazer did it.

The one thing about the new VWs is the blinker stays on for like a couple seconds after you hit the signal turn. Which I guess is neat but what if you make a oopsie?

This is just a re-hash of the codes in the other doc ... a little google translation could help, but still much is a mystery.
