    Golf secret or hidden features list

    Comes to my attention that not everyone even after owning a Golf for years realises all the extra features or hidden secrets their cars have or possibly have. VCDS may be required to enable them.. Figured everyone should add to the list of things they know. Some might be obvious for most some may not even have a clue it did that!
    I'll start with a few
    (of course depends on model and what sensors you car has to begin with)


    1. Side Mirror turn down while reversing
    2. Windows auto shut when it detects rain (up to 24 hours after locking the car or they will auto close in 24 hours)
    3. Remote control windows up and down via key fob
    4. Drivers windows auto down and auto up for all windows if held long enough with car unlocked but key not even in barrel
    5. Ability to change how much light is in the foot wells
    6. Locking the car and option to have the horn sound when doing so

    CasualJan prior added
    - The tyre pressure sensor reset button is inside the glovebox.
    - Coming Home light function only works if the headlights dial is at Auto
    - There's a button on the inside of the B-pillar on the driver's side of the car. I *think* this disables the motion sensors inside the car, allowing you to leave the windows fully down and lock the car.

    tap the wiper stalk after turning the car off to put it in "service mode" or some shit. wipers will stay up and you can lift them off the windscreen for washing.

    Upon selecting reverse and when the rain sensor has detected rain, the car wipes the rear window for you.
