No, they will not be able to do this for you

Hi, i've got a mk 7 gti, '15 model. Did the esc tweak, after a long press on the button it says esc off but the tc still activates, especially when launching the car. Anybody else have this prob?

I have the same problem on my 2015 gti fly guy. Also did the esc tweak.

Guys,

I have a question regarding using the VCDS on my car.

I am a first time Golf owner (changed over from Toyota :o ), I have a 2016 Mk7 GTi performance pack.

1. Will using the VCDS cable on my own be detected by VW if my car goes for service? Will it be an issue with the warranty?

2. Does the version of cable matter, was looking at the 15.7 Ross tech cable. Will the 12.12 also work?

Thanks guys.

Something I noticed was that, yes, 12.12 does indeed work on the 2016 mk7 Gti, however there are a few instances where I could not see the coding bits that needed to be selected. they showed as blank. Once I researched why, it turns out we needed a later version, thus 15.7 worked .
(we were activating the auto rain closing. it requires several more steps than shown in this thread)

I have not experienced this to be honest bud. but then again i've only used It on my cars and only bunch of times. perhaps you have more insight and experience on this than me.. suggest Samurai 20v get the 15.7 version to avoid any glitches as experienced by you.

excuse my ignorance bud, but is it possible to download the later 15.7 version and still use my current 12.12 cable?
