I post a lot on an Audi form and just thought I share a few of the things I've done to my car so far whilst waiting for the warranty to end so as to avoid a td1 flag....

Be nice if others could share the cool stuff they have done to their cars

It is a MY17 A3 e-tron UK model so only one trim level.... didn't have a lot of choice over the colour as the spec I wanted was hard to find so decided to add abit of colour to make it more interesting

So in no particular order

Had professional retrofitted
Side Assist, Hill Hold Assist, Traffic Jam Assist, and Emergency Assist

Various VCDS coding mods
beep on unlock, Auto headlight position memory, increased comfort indicator sweeps, lap timer, wiper service position menu, ACC cruise control last distance memory and more that I can't remember

Added POI for speed cameras and turned on notifications for them

Lots of info here

Fitted Dynamic wing mirror indicators

I take my hat off to you. Many mods i wanted to do but not got round to....yet! I fitted an auto dimming mirror and that was a pain so i know what you must have struggled with. Did you do the cup holder leds? Have you the matrix headlights? I dropped the speed for the main beam assist on the normal headlights from 35+ down to 20mph which is much better.

My car came with the interior LED pack so had the cup holder LED allready it is a pretty common retrofit there are specific kits for it avalible .

The car has matrix headlights from factory. They are very good . Though to retrofit I believe they are very expensive, as you will need the units a camera and potentially levelling sensors and coding.....


I haven’t tried to drop the activation time of the headlights I have seen them stay on to below 30mph in rural settings with no streetlights though ....
