Default Favorite Vag Com A7 Mods

Woohoo! Thanks to help from my friend, a VAG COM owner, I got my new A7 upgraded this weekend. Here's what I added:

1. One touch remote hatch close. (By far my favorite.)

2. Needle sweep at startup (Just plain cool.)

3. Hidden MMI menu (Seems like a shortcut to VAG COM changes. Couldn't find any new items added to the regular settings menus, though.)

4. Remote window close.

5. VIM -- otherwise known as Video in Motion. (So the kids can watch DVD videos on long trips.)

Any others to recommend? What's your fave?

I found codes by searching online for what I was looking for. Here are a couple of links to get you on your way:

Guide to getting a "VIM login-code generator." This is for access to change prefs for video in motion which is not legal in some countries.

I heard some people added efficiency mode to the drive select menu for TFSI models (MY2012).
Does anyone know how to do it?

I've been looking into do the same mods, have you had any trouble with audi and being flagged for changing the settings? Plus, not sure if true but i heard even if you mad changes once it is hooked up to their computer it resets everything back to factory. Which sucks if you dont have vag com like I do.

TD1 flags would only be generated for performance mods, not the typical coding changes that many of us do with VCDS. Mods can be defaulted depending on which modules that may be updated at the dealer but most do not. I've had several different software updates done by the dealer and only one had any effect on a couple of my mods which I reset afterward. When the MMI, steering and transmission updates were performed at different times, they did not affect mods done in the convenience module, i.e. the remote windows/sunroof operation.
