How to adjust Bi-xenon headlight range:


Two options.
I:
Remove of the little plastic cap on the top of the headlights and use an allen wrench to adjust them.
There are two on each headlight assembly(vertical and horizontal). Vertical is white, horizontal is
black. It might be hidden" by having a cap installed into the 6mm hex slot.
II:
Using VCDS(vag-com)
Make sure you're on a level surface.
Click Select Controller
Go to 55 - Xenon Range
Go to Basic Settings - 04
Then in the drop down list, select the adaptation/adjustment option (its the only one in the drop
down).
Then click the ON/OFF/NEXT button.
The headlights should automatically raise to level position.
Close controller and you're done. Pretty simple.

Torque Steer Compensation (TSC)

I think this just showed up in the latest version of VCDS. Maybe it was there before and I missed it. Either way, this is very interesting!
The Torque Steer Compensation (TSC) is only being activated for Front-Wheel-Drive (FWD) Models which have a high powered Engine. This Function
prevents the Car from leaning into one Direction while Accelerating in Combination with powerful Engines and unequal Lenghts Drive Shafts.
The pic below says it's enabled for at least the FWD VR6 Passat. So the VR6 Passat lays down about the same HP as a stage 2 GTI. I wonder if this is
of benefit for tuned GTI's? I'm going to have to try this out. Anybody with K04 want to give it a shot?

With the torque steer settings at 1, I was able to run into second gear as well. The wheel does not pull to the right, even with no
hands. It kind of floats there, as you can see in the vid. I did 5 full runs like this, all the same. Even 1 run where I got wheel hop. It
never pulled.

I will be keeping this setting unless I notice some negative side effect in the steering. I did do some accelerating through a couple of
corners and it seemed normal, but I really need to drive around for real to see better. I can't see this being a bad thing though.

VAG-COM DIAGNOSTIC LOGGING FOR APR TUNED CARS


VAG-COM DIAGNOSTIC LOGGING FOR APR TUNED CARS

LOGGING Setup
Air-conditioning OFF
Traction control OFF
Windows UP
Note: If the car was using another octane of fuel (other than the octane to be tested) right before the
testing is set to begin...Run the car until very near empty (5 miles or less until empty on trip computer to
rid the fuel system of the previous octane of fuel. Then fill the car with 91 octane and drive the car for
about 15 miles to rid the car of the last remnants of the previous octane. Only after this can testing
begin.
B. RUN TYPE / DRIVING TECHNIQUE
Runs need to be at Wide-Open Throttle, 4th Gear, from 1500 rpm rolling start to redline (fuel shutoff).
Note: All runs need to be in the same gear at Wide-Open Throttle for the entire run between 1500 rpm
and fuel shutoff.
C. NUMBER OF RUNS NEEDED
Minimum of 4 runs for the Vag-Com items I outlined below...one for each logging "round" as shown below
in section "VAG-COM BLOCKS TO LOG".
Note: all runs should be done on the same stretch of road; the engine should be up to full operating
temperature before logging; the cool down time needed between runs will be handled when the customer
turns around to reposition himself for next run on the original stretch of road used for the first run.
D. VAG-COM / COMPUTER SETUP:
The data should be logged using Advanced Measuring Blocks in the Engine Controller
The "Turbo" mode should be activated to ensure a decent data sampling rate
The data returned to APR should be in raw numerical form (not graphs). Vag-Com will export the data in
a .csv format. This is what we need. Please have them title each file like "2006_B7_K04_91_oct_4thgearwot_run1", "2006_B7_K04_91_oct_4thgear-wot_run2" and so forth.
Note: If you data sample rate is low, especially if you have no Turbo Mode option with the Micro Can

cable, return to the home screen, click Options and change BLK INT to 25 and CHAR INT to 0.
