Yep. Started the car and the multi-function computer told me to fasten my seatbelt...in French.
Spent the next few minutes scanning the owners manual to see how I could have changed the language setting on the computer, but didn't find anything.
Have started it a few times since then, but my car has only spoken English to me since.
Any ideas why my German car suddenly became a francophone for a moment?

hahaha it's the language of romance... I think your car is trying to tell you it has strong feelings for you.

I didn't think there was a way to change the country setting without the VAG tool??

Lucky for you I took 10 years of french in school.... ask me a question. Anyways.. here is the trick. Take an English word and just add an "e" to the end of it, and voila!!! you have french!

remember that Steve Martin movie where the freeway sign speaks to him? I'm seeing a connection, eventually it will be All Clear once it solves your problems, though it's a bit confused now.

Great. When it solves my problems it will probably speak to me in Hungarian, and I'll have no idea what it's talking about.
