You mind snapping a pict or explaining to me where you see the Individual option? I only see Comfort, Auto, and Dynamic in my Car menu option.

Attempted this mod over the weekend but with no success. Followed David's instructions on his website http://www.audienthu...roject_ADS.html Went through all the steps several times but could only get a greyed out Drive Select in the MMI menu. After selecting 09- Central electric : [Long Coding Helper] Byte 7, bit 5 change 0 t0 1 , I get five new check boxes (Bit 0 to Bit 4) appearing at Byte 8. None on the check boxes have the detailed functional titles illustrated on his site. My 2012 is equipped with MMI 3 plus Nav. Also looked into the steps involving security codes and Adaptation-10. I gain access , but the VCDS tell me there's no communication with Channel 63. It was rather frustrating. In the end I had to go back to stock settings and clear the trouble codes, since this mod does warn of Charisma errors. Any help now would be most welcome.

It is normal to get error for the module Charisma because you do not have the same.
Maybe you find this helping:

I've just enabled this mod and a few others via my new VCDS cable. I took the wagon out for a quick blast to see if it made any difference. And, for me and my driving style, it does. Much quicker through the revs in Dynamic. Smoother through the gears in Comfort.

This is a must do mod.
