vagcom Denver/Westernslope

I'd like to shut off my DRLs. What's the scoop?

I can help you out if you make it to Golden sometime. It's not mine so I can't travel with it. I've done the DRL's and it only takes a minute; too bad the drive over here doesn't. If you schedule some work to be done at the same time at my buddies shop then it may be worthwile. That's where the vagcom is at anyway.

I've seen your ad on CL and here for the Atheos wheels, what did you swap them out with? I have my Atheos for sale as well only no one knows yet. I'll probably wait until you sell yours so as not to undercut you as my set has some fairly worn out DWS tires on them and some curbage/scratches; therefore I'll only be asking $500 or so. I didn't like the selection out there for 19's so I moved on.

hi

My office is off of Table mountain parkway right next to the KONG factory. My atheos are essentially new. No rash. New tires. not a bad deal for 600. buyer pays for shipping. I just bought some 17" canyons from a guy in AZ. Better for the western slope off road stuff.

I have a Vagcom in Silverthorne. I don't know how to turn off DRL's though.

Am I reading this right? You want to turn off Daytime Running Lights? Why?

Main reason is to lengthen the life of the Xenon bulbs and the other there is no real proof they make much of a difference in safety. I turned them off on my 04 and my 10.

Sounds good.

Thanks. that's a good enough reason for me. Also, I lived in Alta from 87-97. Remains a part of me.

DRLs off is usually is a good sign that there is a savvy Touareg owner behind the wheel. That said, I have only seen one of two on the road without DRLs. Both of mine are off.
