    I've just got my A3 Convertible 2.0TFSI 2010. Almost fully equiped, but some options were not factory fitted, so I have already started my plans to retrofit the following:
    • Garage-door opener
    • Radio Controlled Clock
    • Park Assist
    I have sourced the parts:
    • Garage door unit + holder
    • Garage door buttons
    • New faceplate for the inside lamps to the Garage door buttons
    Has anyone done this previously? Any extra coding on other ECUs I need to do, so that the car knows that the option is installed?

    I am planning to create an instruction as I go along.

    Do you have the part numbers for the garage door retrofit? I don't think you need to code any other module.

    I performed a simple garage door opener install on a 2012 A3 6MT. I took a small opener, soldered two wires to the switch pad on the opener and ran these to a two wire connector. I then installed a momentary switch in the dash next to the headlight light switch and ran the wires from the switch to the other end of the two wire connector. I used the connector so I could easily remove the opener to change the battery. The opener unit is mounted under the dash. It looks clean and is a simple install. You can find the switch at radio shack. If you want pictures let me know.
