      I went to the track yesterday super excited using the GIAC Race Program 100 Octane, only to be somewhat let down when I had turned of the stability control and it really does not turn off. With the traction control still on I lost a lot of really needed power through some of the turns. So while at the track I started researching the web and found that the European and Canadian cars will really turn off the traction control by holding down the ASR button for 3 seconds and hear a ding sound. It bugged me so much that I am taking action for what should have come on our US spec cars. I spoke with Austin at GIAC and he said check to make sure the part #'s of the ABS Module for the Canandian and US cars are the same and we can change the coding to make it Euro or Canadian spec. So I called this VW Parts guy in Canada (another Austin haha) and ends up he has a Golf R too. What are the odds. He sent me a log of his coding on his Canadian Golf R. I will show you guys however please use at your own risk as I am verifying with Austin at GIAC that the codes match up with his Golf R connects in Europe and Canada. I am itching to find out. Once I do I will repost my findings. Here is the Canadian spec coding below:

      Part No SW: 1K0 907 379 BJ HW: 1K0 907 379 BJ
      Component: ESP MK60EC1 H31 0121
      Revision: 00H31001
      Coding: 144B800C492580FD281201E492210141310000

      For what it's worth, here's my current (absolutely stock and untouched) ABS brake coding (NA region of course):

      Awesome the coding is different so that is giving me an idea that this coding from Canada should work. I just want to wait for the results from Austin at GIAC to verify the Canadian and Euro codes. I think we are on to something guys...super siked!!! No more power dips through the turns!!!

      I will try to recode tomorrow morning. Only because if I got out of bed right now to recode my car on a public street in NYC, my wife will really think the game is up.

      Let me know your findings and I hope it works!!! I am curious to find out if the coding for Europe is the same as Canada...if it is I think we are in the money!!!

      I just tried it it says "error 31 request out of range"
      I think you need a security key to unlock the module

      I sell cars at a VW Dealership and am going to ask one of my techs how to install the coding. We will find out somehow!!!

      I'm pretty sure someone had tried this 2 or 3 months ago and had the same problem as this. They even tried changing one byte at a time and couldn't get the system to accept the changes...

      If the part number is the same ordering a Canadian ABS module will do nothing as it still has to be coded.

      We probably need to go through the Security Access to fully change the coding.
