  • Hi, I have a A6 avant 2006, I would like to close the mirrors when I park, and also put the parking brake automatically this can be possible?

    • In MMI 3G for sure, in MMI 2G cars not always. Depends on the drivers and passengers door modules. Your car is 2006, so it most likely needs replacing both door modules to activate that feature.

  • hi mate,

    audi C6 2006 , I have two questions.

    1. I know it is probably not possible but can I enable the Needle sweep / Gauge test / Welcome ceremony on it?
    2. Is there anyway I can tilt the mirros when I lock the car, not to have to turn the knob manually?


    • 1. not without replacing the instrument cluster
      2. not without replacing comfort module and/or door modules

  • Hi i got audi a6 c6 2006 i have problems with dual climate control buttons they oposite how its should be. I turn heating on driver side but it blows air into passenger side and its shows on the screen as well.

    • most likely you have to check climate control coding if the LHD/RHD settings is correct.

  • any updates on the service inspection reset? I can see it in the hidden menu but nothing happens.

  • Hello,
    I have an Audi A6 07/2007
    I would like to change the control module to activate mirror tilt.
    Do I have to adapt or code it or simple mount the new control module and then activate that future ?

    • If you have electric mirrors you just need to code that feature.
      Remember that the adjustment knob needs to be in passengers mirror position.

  • Hi Mr. Fix!

    I have an Audi A6 C6 2011 Model.
    Have few questions about updating MMI ver/software.
    Also, Enabling the Hidden Green Menu.
    Since, I realise you’re from Poland. Do you have any place you have a workshop/operate from?
    I’m based in Warsaw.

  • Hello,
    I have Audi A6 C6 2011. It has MMI 3G High (with joystick). I am wondering if there is any volume adjustment, I mean if I can adjust how much volume to be increased or decreased with one click as my current step (1 click) is too strong or too weak. I would like to lower down sensitivity.
