Hi ,on my Golf R I coded the flaps open permanently but there is no option on OBD11 for this on the RSQ3 ,any other way of having them always open instead of selecting dynamic as I can't stand the fake weighted steering feel in dynamic,maybe unplug the connection ?

Unfortunately not - no way I found of coding them open, nor any way of having them permanently open by disconnecting them (as I used to have them on my S3) - did have a look underneath, but not an option.

There was a thread (see below) that looked at this (and exhausts) a while back and concluded that with the standard exhaust we are stuck with how the valve works and that (unfortunately) one can't have it permanently open.

I had a look and it looks like there might be, but without jacking the back of the car up I couldn't really see much

I haven't looked but vaguely seem to recall there was a thread on here where someone tried it and found that taking the plug off made no difference / left the valve closed? Could be wrong though
