I recently traded my trusty MKV GT 07 plate ( 162k) for a 2012 GT TDI
My 07 had never let me down,& when my mechanic stepson came to me with a deal for his 12 plate it was a no-brainer.he’s looked after both cars very well,& as aI travel a bit doing art workshops & teaching, the lower mileage newer car seems sensible.
Love the mk6 so far, but for the life of me, I cannot fathom how to emulate a feature I loved on the MKV: when I locked the car, the headlights stayed on for a good while,& similarly they dame on when I unlocked the car.
Am I being thick?( I am a senior citizen!), or can someone help?

There is a leaving home/coming home feature that can be enabled with vagcom/vcds/obdeleven, you'll need someone with the software to code it.

It's in the car set up. under lights., you can adjust the time for them to come on and go off when you lock and unlock the car. (on the dash display)
