Is 8V A3/S3 virtual cockpit upgrade still possible at all?

Post by adgleeson1978 » Wed Oct 13, 2021 10:17 am


I have purchased the VC, adapter harness, facia, MIB2 and some other parts including a newer gateway if needed.

Well I’m now sad as since Feb 2021 Audi have a new procedure regarding anything to do with immobilisation through ODIS

2 people I know of and spoken to one where Audi declined the VC been out into a S3..

Any suggestions welcomed and appreciated

Bellow is a cut and paste of new rules

Due to more stringent security requirements, the service process for installing used immobiliser
control units (from February 2021 onwards) has been modified (see list).
• In future, you will need to apply for approval from AUDI AG to install any used immobiliser control
• The application is shown automatically when you attempt to adapt the immobiliser control unit
using the ODIS tester (or a laptop with ODIS access).
• Print out the application, sign it and send it to the e-mail address given in the application.
• The department in charge of approvals will check that the application is correct and complete.
• You will then receive an e-mail with information regarding the outcome of your application.
• Please note: It may take up to 48 hours before you receive a reply.
• Once approval has been granted, it is only possible to adapt the control unit to the vehicle
identification number documented in the application. There is no time limit for doing this.
This currently affects the following control units:
Instrument cluster
Audi TT (FV) 2015 >
Audi A3 (8V/ FF) 2013 >
Audi Q2 (GA) 2017 >
Audi Q3 (F3) 2019 >
Convenience system central control unit
Audi A4 (8K/ FL) 2008 > 2015
Audi A5 (8T/ FR/ 8F/ FH) 2008 > 2015
Audi Q5 (8R/ FP) 2009 > 2015
Audi A6 (4G/ FC) 2011 > 2017
Audi A7 (4G/ FC) 2011 > 2017
Audi A8 (4H/ FD) 2010 > 2017
Audi R8 (FX) 2015 >
This list may be extended to include other control units at any time.
