    Oil Temp for B7 S4

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I thought I read somewhere at one time that there was a way to get the oil temp displayed in the b7 s4 center display the same way the RS4 does. I can't seem to find that thread again... Does anyone know if that is possible and if so how? Or are there any of smart phone apps that will display it via a wifi/bluetooth obd reader? I've tried the Engine Link app and it does not support Oil Temp display. If anyone has had success with either way I'm interested in what you used. Thanks.

    Tried looking this up too and it seems that the problem lies within the hardware and most people had to swap to an rs4 cluster to get oil temp. Personally I went the VFIZ by qmatis route and love it! Does everything I want and more.

    Is that a simple plug and play option or is there vcds coding required?

    It's both. It plugs into the back of your original cluster then you have to use vcds to enable the telematics support to the IC.

    Thanks. I think Iíll have to go that route. Do you know the coding process or have a link to the write up on how to do that?
