Re: Advice Re: Apple CarPlay Unit to Retrofit in a 2012 6R Match?

hello

coding the button was really simple, just have access to VCDS and if I remember correctly it was in the central electrics coding.

car play is good to have just to make it easier, im working on wireless CarPlay at the minute which would be a game changer.

Re: Tom's 6R 1.2 TDI Match to 6C Beats + Component protection Bypass

Main bench loom now made and working 100% to simulate how the newer kit works, more parts on order to allow the cross communication of modules but at present not a bad set up. I’ve designed some software that intercepts signals from devices to allow me to see what’s being transmitted. On a side note...

Re: 1.2 TDI CFWA Idle issue

Can you fit a 6r bumper straight on to a 6c chassis?

I have a set of 6c bumper brackets in my office if you are interested in them, you would only need a new style bumper then, bolt holes are the same once you have the new brackets.
