Yes, you can program this using VAG-COM.

Nope, that's not one of the programmable things... :(.

All of the "programmable" features are done via coding of individual
control modules.  For instance, the door lock stuff is all done by coding
the "central locking" control module, and there are numerous control modules
that govern the function of various systems in your car (engine, auto-trans,
HVAC, radio, central locking, instruments, ABS, airbag, etc, etc.)
www.audiworld.com and www.ross-tech.com has some info, but to get the full
monty you need to get the CD edition of the Bentley service manual for
your car, and you need the VAG diagnostic scan tool (or equivalent,
such as VAG-COM).
