​A common modifcation that B8 owners like to do is to enable the hidden menu in Audi’s MMI. The hidden menu is a service menu that can be enabled with our Schwaben Professional Scan tool. We are performing this on our 2011 Audi B8 A4, and the procedure will be the same or very similar on most Audi B8 and B8.5 models.

1: Switch the ignition on (do not start engine) and plug the scanner into the OBDII port

2: Select “VAG”

3: Select “Audi”

4: Select “Systems”

5: Select “Control Unit”

6: Select “Electronics 2”

7: Select “Information Electr.” 

8: Select “Adaptation”

9: Select “input the channel number”

10: Using the keyboard enter “006”

11: Select “Finish”

12: Select “Yes”

13: Select “Set new value”

14: Using the keyboard change “00000” to “00001”

15: Select “Finish”

16: Select “Yes”

17: Select “Yes”

18: To access your hidden menu press and hold the “Car” and “Setup” on your center console for about 6 seconds

18: Enjoy using your hidden menu on your B8
