      Hello, as you may have read in my other threads I'm a new VW owner...2012 CC.

      Today I got to experience VagCom for the first time through a local programmer. I was able to program my windows and sunroof to open and close via the remote. My convenience turn signals now flash 5 times instead of 3. I now have an option to turn off/on my DRLs via my MDI menu on my dash....

      I wanted to get more ideas from the community on what other cool settings can be changed, and what you have already done, in addition to what unmentioned above. Thank you in advance for sharing your Mods/Tips and programming details!

      Tweaks I have done are:
      windows up/down via fob
      Rain closing feature enabled
      DRL's off
      rear fog enabled
      Footwell lights enabled
      fogs enabled from retrofit

      Couple I have played around with:
      using the rear fogs as additional brake lights
      enabled front clear turns on 25% when headlights come on

      Would love to have the option to change the number of blinks the turns take, but with the 2011's the option is not available. One of the differences between the CECM from year to year I guess.

      I hear ya. Diff CECMs have their advantages as disadvantages..I was not able to turn off the bulb out error or my plate LED, even with removing the cold diagnostic....but the 5 convenience blinkers is just the perfect amount...I used to always have to hit them a second time when they were only 3

      I believe that's where the left/right signals flash 3 times if you don't fully click them when turning.

      I have already done this.

      Unfortunately, only one bulb on each additional tail light works as a brake light. The outside half of the inner tail only.

      Of course, better than nothing. Every little bit counts.

      can the drl in mfi be done on a 2009 cc. if so, how with vcds 11.11 ???
      Also how do you change the blinks to 5 on a 2009 cc with vcds 11.11 ???

      I have been searching everywhere, and since this has been discussed here, I may as well ask?

      Thanks

      Actually the programmer that did both those for me has a 2009 and he told me it cannot be done on his. The 2012 hi-line CECM is capable of doing that.

      As has already been posted, the 2009 cannot be changed to 5 blinks. Sorry, I am disappointed also.

      MI is too far, maybe if I make a run to Cabellas.

      Also...has anyone ever thought it would be nice to have the fuel door release on the key remote? I wonder if there would be a way to code that.
