When you plug in VCDS, the first thing you need to do is turn your caps lock off

Beyond that, I cannot help, sorry!

Officially, a cluster can only be rolled forward using vagcom to a new value if it has less than 100km on the mileage. Once past this, it becomes locked.

Unofficially, I believe it can be done, but i believe its a soldering iron job on the bench job. I'm not aware of anyone on this forum that has even proceeded past the 'how do i' stage and actually gone to effort of doing it properly.....

The A8 is a high value car, so they have done a decent job of making it quite hard to clock from what i read.....

When I put a 2008 wide DIS cluster in my 2006, it took quite a while to clock it forward. Eventually, a friend of an ex work colleague wanted to borrow my VCDS and in return I borrowed some hand held thing that could change the mileage via the OBD port.

Like this..

It took quite a few goes and required removing fuses, counting seconds, turning ign on and off and counting more seconds and putting fuse back and was quite complicated - it took me almost an hour of trying stuff and googling.

Still had one MOT with the very low mileage.

You'll then have CP to remove once installed.
Oh Wicked. Ps pm details👍🏼

Nice, and good to know....

Any chance of back filling a few more of the technical details of whats involved ? Not looking to steal any business away from you, but as an IT guy, I find this quite interesting.. .

Default Dealer

I got mine corrected at the dealer when I changed my cluster- i had fitted it, but they wanted the original to check the mileage and I think they ended up winding it forward to the correct value. I was well over the 100k.
