VAG COM recommendations - shop will make changes for free

I'm going to get the APR flash soon and the shop will make all Vag Com changes that I want for free while my 2012 GTI DSG is there.

From my recent searches, I would like to do the gauge sweep on start up, fogs on with high beams, seat heater stay on same setting, maybe fogs while turning.

What are some other cool and useful items I should consider for my 2012 GTI DSG base?

After using the rear wiper washer, the wiper waits a 3-5 sec and then does an extra wipe.

When you put your car in reverse the rear wiper is activated automatically (stock configuration) When you do not like you can deactivate it.

I've seen that many like to disable the DRLs. Why is this popular?

i have bixenon and it will make the ballast last longer. also, the lights flash when the parking brake is up.

its a cleaner look in my opinion. may not be suited for someone else.

some dont like the way it looks, some try to preserve the bulbs longevity.

The tear drop is an xtra wiper sweep after 5 seconds or so after u wash the rear window. it wipes the last bit that usually runs down the glass afterwards

All of below is found in 09 - Central Electronics.

1. Comfort Operation (via Remote Control) is in adaptation.

2. DRL is found in Long coding helper, depends on Halogen or Xenon (un-check the respective box):
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4671558

3. Alarm Confirmation, Long coding helper, (un-check the respective box)

4. Comfort Turn signals, is in adaptation, choose the number of flashes.

5. Emergency Brake Warning active (actually uses 4 ways, described in above link) found in Long coding helper. (check the respective box)

6. I never activated that, but I believe "Tear Drop" Wiping for Rear Wiper is what you’re after, Long coding helper, Byte 21 (un-check the respective box) Any comments are welcome on that because mine was not coded from the factory and I don't know about the Reverse gear operation?

7. If you have heated seats...You may be able to set it up to resume the previous heated position on the Drivers seat after a key cycle.

Example: Shut the car off to run in the store, jump back in and start up, seat is still on the previous setting. Found in 08 - Auto HVAC, Adaptation from the drop down menu.
