    • Staff @ AutoInstruct says:

      Hi Joshua,

      If your car can support the additional lights, and coding is required, OBDeleven can definitely do this for you.

  2. Andrew T says:

    I’m about to pick up a 2017 Mk7.5 highline fully optioned, just wondering how many of these adjustments are available for the new model with all the options?

  3. Jaeker Chik says:

    I don’t know what I’ve done to my 2012 Golf 1.4 TSI. Now I couldn’t entered into 09-Central Electric Adaptation via access code 31347, nor 20103. Much appreciate for your helps in this!
