FYI, I was planning on posting up earlier... I drove around all summer in increased traction mode. I recently changed back to standard. I prefer the way the car reacts in standard mode. I'm not convinced that increased traction mode helps. There's one particular turn I take coming out of the gym every morning that was basically night and day between the two settings. It's a tight right hand turn coming out of a parking lot. My passenger right rear often loses traction simply because of the geometry of the ramp out of the lot. In increased traction, the push from the rear felt very jerky and definitely didn't "increase traction". In standard mode it was a lot smoother and I felt a stronger, more consistent push from the rear.
Everyone's experience might differ, but I'm not going back to "increased traction". Given that the setting is for "wiring logic", I'm guessing that maybe Audi/VW developed a different wiring harness that might result in increased traction, but since we don't have that harness, we might not get the benefit of the logic. Even the S3 and RS3 don't have it set to increased traction, so I think this is one of those things people change but it might not be for the better...
Thanks. I really wish we could change the bias of the system, on my old B5 S4 you could pop in a different center diff and double the amount sent to the rear diff. I think on the older R32 you could put in a "motorsport" haldex controller that would do much the same.
I know UM has a haldex tune but I'm not keen on doing that to an almost new car.

I suppose it is possible to install the sensors and figure out how they are wired into the car. For most people it'll be easiest to just install the power mirror housings, instead.
Before the power fold mirrors my mirror memory wouldn't work, after installing them it does. You can check for yourself in live data after turning on mirror memory and see if you have the sensor/readings, but i'm guessing not.
