Hi All,

As the title says i’m trying to find the most cost effective coding app or software, i’m most likely only going to make the changes i want and not use it again.

i’ve ruled the expensive stuff like VCDS and it looks like my options are Carly and OBDeleven and even these seem a little steep for minimal usage.

The features i’m after are:
Mirror Dip on reverse
Gauge needle sweep on startup
Scandinavian Drl (rear Drls always on)
Disable door open alarm

Anyone got any suggestions would be appreciated thanks!

I’m a big fan of Carista, too. Scandinavian DRL settings enabled on my SQ5, which is a 2018 FY model. I can’t speak directly for the 8R model but I was able to set this on my B8 S4, which I think has similar architecture to the 8R Q5.

Great to hear! yes I believe it is. I've purchased it now so I'll find out soon enough. I'd imagine any S-Line 8R with the rear led drl's from 2013 onwards will be fine ☺

No leds on my SE. Plenty of other options specced tho'. Carista is great used it some. Green menu, needle sweep, ADS and others. I have reversed many options having tried them. But happy to have tried them.
ADS and green menu kept. Start/stop option reversed. Some warning beeps deleted. Bleep for locking/unlocking activated.

Ahh that's great! How do you find ADS and how do you yourself generally use it?

I got my adapter today I've enabled everything I wanted so just ADS I'm intrigued with now.
