So you saying i can have MPG display for an SE ?
But i have to do a Right control Conversion on my steering wheel ?
Keep us updated =D
Im literally out of breath from excitement! After much research and alot of luck, I finally have found a way to activate the full mfd on your mk6. Some credit goes to fellow orlando native NADERJ123 who brought up the issue and a dude in cali named vendy for the vag help

NEW UPDATE: Verebs1 has discovered that this will partially work in all jettas with out retrofit. When your gas light chimes on, the "Miles left" will show on the mfd. All you need to is turn on the feature in vcds as mentioned below.
Vag Com tool
right hand controls retrofitted
(those of you who did the GLI wheel upgrade like me finally get to use those controls)
This should work on every MK6 jetta assuming you install the controls and activate via vagcom (not 100% on the S but confident it will work with more retrofitting)
- Miles to empty
- avg MPG
- and every other option the tdi has.

adding right side controls:
If you remove your airbag on your se with conv. and up you should see this box (search the web for how to remove airbag safely):

to add the right side, simply connect the controls to the open harness slot on the right. Then remove old blank right side cap and screw on new one. follow with vagcom activation. This box in the center of the wheel is the reason the upgrade is easy for some and a little more complex for others. SE with conv. and up has this black box. Other models would need a new wheel.
You will need a multifunction harness if you are just buying a wheel and using your old air bag. This picture illustrates what the standard and Multifunction one have. You will connect the "C" area ti the "1" on the module picture

all you should need is this:

4.) Select the second box or (Byte 1 as the first box is byte 0)
Check bit 3 "Multi-function Display Active"

5) close out and hit "do it!"
Using your controls use the up and down and ok to switch between mfd 1 and 2
I will update this thread as i find out more. Like always, if you have any questions let me know! AND ENJOY!!!!

hmm weird...I've been able to use the controls on the right side of my GLI MFSW ever since I had it put into my Canuck Sportline (SEL w/sport). The only buttons that don't do anything are the left and right buttons (right side). Maybe the guy at the dealership did it for me lol
Nice job nonetheless

I had thought this was possible ever since I saw the manual page about the MFD that said to use the tight hand controls or the right stalk controls (euro style wiper stalk w/rocker +button). Thank you Jettsy! and everyone involved! (now the only question is... will this work on my S...
I've always thought the clusters would be the same and thought about doing the right button switch.
I have '12 se conv+ sunroof. If I get the right buttons and do the vag work, it should work with full functionality of the buttons or does something else need to be changed? How much we talking about for price on the buttons?
Really the main thing is that the activation in vagcom is hidden in instruments and when selected it activates the mfd info along with the controls simultaneously. I still can't believe this has been hiding there for over a year! I finally know how
Much fuel is really left in my car!
Also everyone: I'll keep the first post updated as more info comes. My inbox is kind of blowing up at the moment with questions so I'm doing my best to answer all of them.
Not sure it matters but this appears to be another case of same part, two P/Ns, two production use dates.
For the right hand side there is:
5C0959538A YQV - Titanium Black/White/Chrome Matte Silk - (4/10-9/11) - $195.00 (list)
5C0959538B YQV - Titanium Black/White/Chrome Matte Silk - (10/11) - $187.00 (list)
I don't think the version you get matters but just wanted to let you all know.
5C6920951 (04.07.11>>) CBPA (160MPH)
5C6920951B (04.07.11>>) CBUA, CBTA (160MPH)
5C6920950E (>>03.07.11) Diesel (160MPH)
5C6920951A (04.07.11>>) Diesel (160MPH)
5C6920970 BX (<<03.07.11) CCTA, CBFA (180MPH)
5C6920971 BX (04.07.11>>) CCTA, CBFA (180MPH)
Guess I answered my own question again. The Otto engine is the 2.slow. That would mean that the Jetta S with sunroof has this plus the mfsw because it has Bluetooth. I'll check the diagrams when I get home in 15, and see where the wheel control module plugs in.
Jettsy, the photo of the steering wheel control module that's in the first post isn't high enough resolution to see the part number. Can you post a part number for that module. Owners of "S" vehicles may be able to retrofit that module into their existing steering wheels, rather than buy a new wheel.
If they can get the module, it may be possible to just get the right side buttons as well to get it to work.
Let me see if I can locate the module p/n though
also, im wondering if this might work without the right hand controls also...If I'm not mistaken, TDI's use the wiper stalk to change through the menus. I don't think tdi's come with right hand controls...can anyone with a tdi confirm that? It may be possible to use the wiper stalk instead...anyone want to shed light on this?

It would be interesting to see what would be more cost effective for "S" vehicles because a new steering wheel would need a new airbag as well.
You could get a new wheel that has the control module, right hand buttons and airbag or possibly just get the control module and right hand buttons to retrofit into your existing wheel.
what i would honestly do if i had an S is buy MFSW with no airbag (there about 120 nowadays on ebay) then i would strip its parts i.e.: module, left. and right controls then easily adapt to my current wheel and bag. This would likely cost significantly less than fetching parts individually. or next option would be to get a GLI wheel which would have everything and you could use your S airbag. You may need a new harness though for the airbag if you buy it without the bag. first option seems easiest.
Heres some ebay links:
Steering wheel with left and right controls and paddles but no module $250
left and right controls only $140
also try ebay germany(use google chrome to translate):
