Read the post that TJN shared above. May not be possible without flashing since the code in VCDS for NAR and RoW GTIs (edit: maybe this should say "DSG" instead of just GTIs) is the same, yet the latter has the gear in D & S modes.

Mainly referring to the fact the mod was done on a Sport Wagon.

But pardon the lack of details earlier. Bummed that there's still no coding solution for NAR GTI's. And obviously referring to DSG since this mod isn't necessary...on a manual. And all MK7 GTI automatics... are DSG. Am I missing something?

Ah there's a slight misunderstanding. The NAR Golf and Sportwagen (and e-golf and Alltrack?) use traditional torque converter style automatics, while our GTI and R have the DSG. The traditional automatic happens to have a setting available on VCDS/OBDeleven in order to get the gear display working on D & S mode, while it seems the DSG does not.

What Don suspects here is that on the DSG, it's a firmware level change (needs a tune/flash like APR): http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?p=477834

4Motion Sportwagens and Alltracks have DSGs, whereas regular Sportwagens have traditional automatic transmissions.

Apparently this mod does not work on all hardware versions of the Aisin TCM.

I'm pretty bummed.

02 Transmission

System description: AISIN AG6 G3
Software number: 09G927158AR
Software version: 3198
Hardware number: 09G927158
Hardware version: 202
ODX name: EV_TCMAQ250031
ODX version: 002009
Long coding: 010200000C000000000000000000000000000000

When I tried long coding, the change was rejected citing unsupported.

Bummer.

UPDATE. I revisited this after months of being really disappointed at not being able to see the gear # next to D/S, so I fired up the ol' OBDeleven and tried again. As before, I got the same error (Error 71 function not available). So I tried switching diagnostic service modes to VW diagnostic mode, and voila! In that mode the change took effect! Results were instantly verified. I am so happy now. This feature should have been provided stock.

Can you post a full walkthrough of what we need to do?

I can, but if you have an R, it won't work.
