      if you rear end some ****** in a cadillac because he doesn't know how to drive, nothing will happen to your car, at all. tried it 3 weeks ago, and was amazed at the results. i heard it only works on UG and f-heits tho?


      LOL I did this, had some lady back into my rear , and tada no damage at all

      Someone posed this earlier, but you can go through the MAF>settings>convenience>single door>select and your kay fab will open all the doors in one click instead of 5.
      If you want to leave your windows cracked turn the car off, send them all up at once, and open the door at the last second. Otherwise it is easy to get caught in the auto up, auto down , auto up, auto down cycle.
      The Styrofoam around the spare tire has a lot of micro fiber towel and tool storage.

      The wipers are awesome, spray the windscreen while driving and it will wipe three times and give one last wipe after a few seconds but im sure everybody knows that...

    7. 09-14-2009 04:37 PM #32
      if you go through the menu of your MAF under convenience mode you should find ATA confirm (or something or other) if you turn this off your car will not honk the horn when you lock it, only flash the lights. Perfect if you're sneaking over to someone's house at night and you don't wanna wake the neighbors or parents

      Your wipers will never stick in the halfway up position that I HATE SO MUCH! Even if it's in mid wipe and you remove the key, they will still go down. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      the spray nozzle for the rear wiper is actually in the hub! i totally didn't know that until i got a rabbit as a loaner. and the spray nozzles up front are under the bonnet. its a pretty neat and clever design!

      if you take the rear spray nozzle cap off.. you get a squirt gun. very useful for tailgaters, or if you want to drive infront of some bros and piss em off.

      If you get in the car after it rains with water on the roof and roll down your windows you get a nice OEM water fall.

      Good thread...there's a huge one in the B6 Passat forum.

      If you unlock your car then open the door, press (down) and hold the drivers window switch and all 4 windows will roll down for as long as you hold the button. This is a good trick in case you don't have remote windows VAG'd.
      Wipers will slow down when you come to a stop. If they're on "low", they'll slow to intermittent when you stop.
      New feature for 09 cars: With Climatic semi-auto a/c, the recirculate function now works automatically to enhance cooling. If you're in fresh mode, but the cabin isn't cooling quickly enough, it will switch to recirc. It goes back to fresh when the cabin has cooled sufficiently. 09+ cars ONLY.

      Oh, here's a goodie.... run through with a few VAG changes without recording the 'before' configuration and when your Sirius is completely dead the next day, you literally sh*t yourself!

      If you tap the window wipers stalk downwards right after you shut the car off it will put them in the up position
