      Just like the thread title says, my 2010 B6 Passat Wagon 2.0t does not have EDL, which my previous car, a 2008 Jetta 2.0t, did have.

      I did not think it made such a big difference, especially in winter driving, but OMG !!! With the exact same winter tires, my Jetta would get off the line much quicker and would spin both tires doing so, as opposed to my Passat which spins only one tire and struggles to get off the line on snow or ice.

      Also, I have a good set of Goodyear studded winter tires, so these cannot be the source of the problem...

      Anybody has ever done such a flash program ? Theoretically, it should be possible as EDL or XDS only uses the brakes to control the spinning wheel and to transfer the power to the other wheel...

      Thanks

      Forgot to mention this, but in my Jetta, I would hear an "ABS-like" sound, especially on snow or ice, which told me that EDL was doing its job, but now in my Passat I never hear this noise, which tells me that there is no EDL working.

      I do not think my car is supposed to have EDL, but I am wrong and it should have it ?

      your car is supposed to have EDL, ASR, & ESP
      Modding... it's a disease that can only be cured by buying a Toyota

      what he said ^^

      If you're in North America your car should have it. If for some reason it doesn't, you should be able to enable it through VCDS as the ABS controller installed the Wagons supports the function as far as I know.
