2014 A4 - Jap import.

Is it possible to change the radio frequency band/region from Jap to EU using VCDS? It's easy on Golf's and A3's, I've never tried an A4 and can't seem to see a region option in the long coding.

Googling it seems to give mixed answers, I can't get a definite answer on if it's possible or if it requires some hardware changes.



Doing similar research at the moment as well (2009 B8 - Jap Import). For the MMI version I have, sounds like an easy fix by swapping out the radio unit in the boot. Not sure if you?d have component protection issues in doing so though.

Hi guys,

Not possible to resolve the radio problem via VCDS, you need a replacement radio module.

I have done this on my own car, and happen to have a couple spare. Message me if you guys are keen to purchase, I can walk you through replacement too.

I'm in Auckland FYI.
