    No thats way to early, I did it on mine.

    Cluster Staging / Gauge Needle Sweep

    Now I've seen this feature on YouTube a few times but they only show the Golf GTI doing this. I searched around and a user on another forum who has a GTD as enabled this feature on his.

    Now this will depend which type of instrument cluster you have fitted it must be an 'H' type. If you want to know how you find which type of cluster you have read here

    Select 17-Instruments

    Select Adaptation - 10

    Select Staging from the combobox

    If it hasnít been changed it will say not active in the Stored value

    Select active from the New value combobox and click Do It!. You will get a message are you sure you want to change not active to active just click yes.

    Now when I activated mine I turned the ignition off then on and the needles didnít sweep I tried this a couple of times. I turned off and removed the key then inserted it and turned on and the both needles swept.
