Good riddance :-D

However... Ever since I no longer have a car with soundaktor, I feel like I miss a "parameter to modify".. it felt good to have it on every now and then for some weird reason. I got attached to it, in my GTE: first I coded it to be off all the time, and then I modified my driving profiles to have it to 100% when using the electro-engine. Made the car feel like it was a muscle car :p
I just replaced it with BFI Stg 2 Mounts 😂

On that last point, does anyone know what soundaktor % lines up with each of the DCC driving modes? I've scoured the internet but the most I can find is that "eco" is "low" (though no one knows for sure if it's 0%) and increases through comfort, normal, and sport. Would love to code it so eco is 0 and sport is 100 so I didn't have to dig out the OBD11 when I want some extra rumble.

While reverse engineering the FPA(driving profile) datasets, I've found the following values that are used as request signal to the soundaktor:


From the looks of it, "144" and "152" are the values that turn it off. So if you want "ECO" to be OFF, there needs to be a value 144 or 152 at the ECO profile here. However, this is me speculating, haven't tested it yet (since I don't have a soundaktor). Read more about my driving profile modifying research here: https://github.com/jilleb/mqb-fpa

On my non-DCC 2015, there was 100% in sport mode, and 50% in normal. No 0% option unless you unplugged it or recoded it in VCDS.

This is some serious research you've got going on here! Very impressive. A bit over my head I think as I'm still learning the OBD11 but gonna follow this repo/wiki.

Threw on my power fold mirrors 🙌🏻. Got the German version this time because of Blind spot monitoring. Quality of the China units are great which is what I had on my 2017. I do see any huge difference between the 2. So glad to have folding mirrors once again.

I need to do this. Just moved to a small sidestreet in south philly with curb parking lol. This needs to be next on my list.

Got my tinting re-done, 35% all the way around except the windshield.
5 years ago when I moved from Staten Island where the police generally leave you alone if your're tinted - because virtually everyone's windows are tinted - to The People's Republic of New Jersey, I removed the tint from my front windows.
I was afraid I wouldn't pass an inspection, and that the police would be tougher.
Since then, the tint on my rear windows began to develop issues.
So, it was either re-do the rears alone or do the whole car again.
I did the whole car.
No pics yet, but then again... You've all seen what a window tinted GTI looks like.

I rewired my dash cam. I didn't leave myself enough slack last time and I couldn't get the wire tucked away how I would have liked and it was driving me crazy. It's all nice and neat and hidden now though.
