I haven't tried it, but ETKA shows the menu control as a modular block, with no apparent fixings. Just wondering if it's possible to lift the unit up far enough, providing the wiring is long enough.

Just looked at mine again, it does actually have a grub screw in it but is just a push fit.
IIRC I just adjusted the screw in tiny increments until it pushed onto the spindle securely. T'was long ago now....

- has a louder more obnoxious exhaust than the S8, sounds great! Love this thing - Q7 was double the price, and certainly not double the car!
