    Holds your car in place when stopped. So you don't need to keep your foot on the brake. I have an 07 manual, but I see no need to ever use it.

    Thanks for the info. Since you have manual I was wondering if you could tell me where my aux jack is. I have a 6 disc oem.

    Thanks

    The way I understand it, when you're holding the car in place with auto-hold, the brake lights are not lit up. Just something to be aware of.

    thanks, I did some inspecting today before leaving for work. I found the aux port and as i was in the glove box.. i saw this orange tag, decided to pull it and guess what came out. The manual

    I did play with the auto hold, its quite nice. Are you able to change the brake lights with vag-com?

    Works great when waiting for the bridge to go by or when parked on an incline... not like we have any mountainous roads in South Florida lol but still.

    Your mountains are speed bumps to us northerners.

    There aren't any settings you can change.

    Read through this thread an it kinda explains why the tail lights aren't left on
