    I'm pretty sure I could see the xds stuff and steering on my 2010 Leon... I use obdeleven though which is vcds for mobile and only about £60 for the Dongle and pro licence...

    No worries, it's not an issue :)

    If you're ever in Rutland I don't mind plugging my OBD in for you and having a look.

    Are you planning on changing the steering so when sport is selected it uses dynamic or something similar?

    I've seen something like this

    Permanent sport steering:

    Control unit: 44 Steering Assistance
    Adaptation
    Name: Characteristic curve of steering assistance
    Old value: Driving profile selection button
    New value: Dynamic

    Thanks atm I am getting used to the control but do find the steering a little heavy, so am thinking about lightening it a bit.

    I am not 100% sure a 64 reg 1.4 tsi fr has XDS fitted?

    I don't have a sport button/ setting - or haven't found it yet - I did think the sat nav in car mode might give me that option but can't find it.

    Best wishes,

    John

    I guess the best way to find out is to plug it in and see what options you have, XDS maybe a little much like you mentioned but I assume it's all in the same area. I can plug into my Leon and see what I get, unfortunately it may be totally different on yours as mine from 2010 and you have an Ibiza haha
