    Dyno mode

    This is what google says How To Enable: With the vehicle turned off turn on the ignition. Once the dash lights turn on to test operation (ABS CEL etc.) switch on the hazard lights. Once turned on pump the throttle 5 times. At this time the traction control light will come on and you are in dyno mode. Turning off the hazard lights will disable dyno mode and the rear wheels will be reactivated.

    Ive got the 340mm discs with Aston 4 pots which are the same as the rs3 8p calipers, you need minimum 11mm spacers, I went with 12 and it’s close

    Man I’ll get it done again from my usual garage and report back, wouldn’t be surprised if the main dealers are messing up something as simple as an oil change they seem to ruin everything else they touch
