What is WABCO Programmer in VCP?
WABCO Programming Add-on is a configuration tool for Audi Adaptive Air Suspension (AAS). Adjustments in EEPROM enable extensive customization options. Among other things, you can set the chassis height directly as a numerical value (+ / -) without performing time-consuming complex settings. These settings are very flexible, allowing to adapt chassis settings to different driving speed, i.e. in which driving modes which chassis height is to be used (Sport, Normal, elevator).
