Well the way you hack the right hand side one is.. Press and hold the mfa button, turn ignition on then off, then on. Then let go of the mfa, so to get both you've got to do both sides at the same time.. It is hard with 2 hands but it can be done lol

Has anyone else worked out that they can sort of hack the mfa in their vr6, might also work on gti's..

Basically, press and hold the trip reset button, without letting go of the button turn the ignition to no 2 (just before it starts the car) then turn the ignition completely off then start the car (don't let go of the trip button till now) now the digital milometer will display "1".

By pressing the trip button it will scroll through numbers 1-8, they all give various readings.. Number 7 displays electronic rev gauge which is quite cool..

Thought i'd share.. And don't worry, when u turn the ignition off it will reset back to showing the miles etc.

Have fun


yeah i found this by mistake last time i reset my service intervals, io was unsure what id done haha

Tried this on the move today with the digi rev counter running. Problem is my fuel gauge didn't like it one little bit!
