    HOW-TO: Lowering AAS with VCDS

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I finally accomplished lowering the S6 with VCDS. Some said it can't be done, but it most definitely worked for me. It should be entirely reversible in case you decide to revert the settings. All research was done through Google and playing around with software settings, none of this information was provided by Audi or Audi dealers. This method is an alternative to Lowering Links (which are great if you don't have the electronic tools/would rather go the mechanical route), or H&R lowering module (which is also great, and allows for on-the fly adjustments vs. having to mess with car systems).

    I figured that since all the tools and information required to do this have already been made public on the internet, it is just matter of time until someone posts a step-by-step guide, so here it is.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that these changes may cause, or if your car breaks, or if dealership finds out and denies your warranty if something goes wrong... Try this at your own risk.

    0) Set your car to "Auto" mode (not dynamic, comfort, etc.). Make sure car is on level ground. Close doors. If any doors are opened during the procedure, it will be interrupted. Make sure your car is NOT in a towing or tire changing mode.
    1) Load up VCDS, go to Module 34 - Level Control
    2) Go to "10 - Adaptation", take note of 4 values titled as "Body height front left wheel house edge" - mine were set to around 384 from factory.
    3) Take the values you noted above, and ADD your desired drop in millimeters (mm) to each value, write it down... So if your left front wheel was 384.5, your new value will be 401.5. Repeat for the other wheels. It is not critical to be 100% precise here, rounding the values is fine. Note that maximum Audi-approved drop is 17mm from what I've gathered. You can go lower, but if you go lower, you're also affecting other systems, such as cameras, adaptive cruise, etc., so be careful.

    Technically, if you want this procedure to be done properly, instead of taking existing values, you will measure all 4 wheels after completion of the step 7, and then add your drop value if desired. Suspension height values are measured from the center of the wheel to the edge of the fender.

    4) Go to Security Access, enter code provided on the following website, under VCDS section, item #3 (I'm not posting this directly to avoid spreading sensitive data, although it's been posted on other forums in past) http://www.stemei.de/pages/coding/au...ng-des-aas.php
    5) You should get a message stating that security code has been accepted - if you don't, something failed, stop doing what you're doing
    6) Go to 04 - Basic Settings

    *** IMPORTANT: Whatever you do, DO NOT select "Reset All Adaptations" - this is not undoable, and will require a visit to the dealer. ***

    7) Select "Activate Level Control", hit "Go", wait for it to complete (should only take a second, until it says "not running").
    8) Select "Delete Calibration For Level Control", hit "Go", wait for it to complete, your car will throw a fault code and you will see an error message stating Air Suspension Malfunction - this is normal.
    7) Select "Start Up to Reference Level", hit "Go". This step will take about a minute, and your car will go up/down during the process (you'll hear hissing noises). Wait for it to complete, until it says "not running". DO NOT use the "start up to reference level production" option.
    9) Select "Go Back", go to "10 - Adaptation" on the previous screen.
    10) Next you will need to enter new adaptation values for all 4 wheels. Select "Body height front left wheel house edge", then enter new adaptation value, and hit "Do it", then repeat for the other 3 wheels. I did it in the order the menu was arranged (FL, RL, FR, RR) - not sure if the order matters, but just in case. Each time you enter a value, you should get a message stating that it has been accepted.
    11) After you're done entering adaptation for all 4 wheels, select "Go Back", and return to "04 - Basic Settings" again.
    12) In basic settings, select "Calibrate Level Control" and hit go, it will take a few seconds. Wait for it to say "not running". If you get an error during this step, you either missed a step, or something went horribly wrong.
    13) Select "Activate Level Control", hit "Go"
    14) You're done, now go to "02 - Fault Codes" and Reset codes.

    If this did or didn't work - please share your experience with the rest of us here.

    UPDATE:

    There is an additional setting that will prevent your car from auto-lowering at ~30 mph, as well as allow you to raise the suspension while driving at any speed. Standard settings gray out the "raise" button over a certain speed, and are particularly annoying if your car is lowered via the steps above and you would like to keep it raised for an extended period of time (such as city driving with a lot of dips, bumps, ramps, sloped driveways, etc.)

    1) Launch the green menu by holding Car + Menu buttons. (If you don't know how to enable or use the green menu, see the main VCDS thread)
    2) Go to "car" then "carmenuoperation" menu
    3) Scroll down to "suspension"
    4) Change the value to "5"
    5) Press the center menu knob to save
    6) Reboot the MMI (Menu button +Center knob+Top Right soft button)
    7) Turn the ignition on/off

    Let me know if I missed any steps as I'm posting this off my memory right now.

    Great write-up and research. I can't wait to try it. I have lowering links, but I'll remove them and try this when I get a chance.

    Fantastic work! I will give this a go next week. I had mine lowered by my dealer, but actually want to raise the rear a couple of mm to even out the reverse rake. Will try this.

    Thank you for sharing.

    I know a guy at the dealer who did this for me in ~5 minutes. However, I know a lot of others had no luck with the dealer doing this for them. +1 Great work.

    HOW-TO: Lowering AAS with VCDS

    TunTap you are awesome. Yes it most definitely works. Lowered 17mm all around from the values that were shown prior to the addition step.

    Everything worked for me as well. There were some very, very minor differences that I saw in the instructions compared to what I went through, but it was so negligible that it really didn't change the overall essence of the instructions. Like for step 10, after each corner, I had to select "stop" before moving to the next step. I think that was really the only thing that I didn't see in the instructions, but again, it was so minor that you should be able to figure it out pretty easily.

    I voted in the poll

    GREAT JOB, TUNTAP!!!

    I wonder if this is different for different VCDS versions. I didn't have to select stop after each corner. Using 12.12.something or whatever the latest is.

    I'm running VCDS Version: Release 12.12.2.

    Again, no complaints. Everything worked like a charm!

    You are the man. Thank you. It worked for me also.
    I tried adding 17mm but it would not accept the change. Same thing with 16mm, but 15mm worked all around. When I measured, it actually dropped the car 1/2" or about 12-13mm. I actually measured from the top of the alloy wheel to the fender, before and after. I figured measuring from the center of the rim is fairly subjective as you are never sure if you are exactly at the center of the rim.
    Also, when switching to Dynamic mode, it lowers the car another 3/8" and when raising the car via MMI, it raises the car 3/4" or 1/4" above the original height (before lowering it with Vag).

    Gents, just had a thought - if you do this mod, post the numbers that you used for the adaptation (and pictures are always welcome).

    Also, I'm going to continue looking into the settings to see if maybe there is a way to enable adaptive damping controls. S6/7 cars have the ability to change damping stiffness, but it doesn't look like it's coded to allow changes to factory settings. I believe the RS7 has damping adjustments, if anyone with an RS7 can run some VCDS dumps - let me know.

    Go to the link provided, the entire page is in German, but under the red text in step #3 there's a 5-digit code.

    Great job! Now I feel a bit silly to buy H&R ETS LOL. Anyway, I would stick with H&R though as I have lowered my car further than 17mm limit.

    Cool, looks like this works for everyone. Up to now, this had been the VAGCOM Davinci Code. Update: Code broken!

    HOW-TO: Lowering AAS with VCDS

    The 17mm limit doesn't seem to be enforced in any way. I may or may not have it 25mm lower than standard right now.

    That's a good point, because "standard" seems to vary. My car had 396/398mm stored for front/rear respectively while TunTap was 384, which is 10mm higher than me. My current values are 406/408 which would be 20mm lower than TunTap.

    My guess is you don't need the pro kit and can go with:

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    What car are you using this on? Your profile says A6 , which doesn't have air suspension as far as I know (unless you're in Europe).

    I think this is the one TunTap meant for $349. So let me get this right. I would just connect this between the car and a laptop and I would be able to do this if I had an S6?

    You'd also have to download the software to your laptop:
