    Fiscon Basic still compatible with current Androids?

    I have contacted Kufatec, but I am sure they are giving me responses from a 2013 support script. Asking me to try very outdated BT connection apps that don't even run etc. They won't commit to a firmware update fixing it, which makes me think they have not tested any recent phones.

    Fiscon Basic still compatible with current Androids?

    Thanks for trying to help, appreciate it. The firmware update file on that link is older (2012) than the build date on my Fiscon (2013) and also the BT File Transfer tool they link to (by Medeival - no pun) is very outdated and itself errors on launch on any contemporary Android. You do have...

    Fiscon Basic still compatible with current Androids?

    Has anyone a Kufatec Fiscon Basic Bluetooth unit that successfully reads the phone book or at least the recent calls list on a recent Android phone (Android 11)? This won't work on my Samsung S20+ or even an old S8 on Android 9. Otherwise works OK. Kufatec say they don't know of such problem...

    A3 thermostat change

    Thanks. So probably easier with the front in service position as for cambelt, but otherwise different tasks as the stat is in it's own housing (not with the waterpump). Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk

    A3 thermostat change

    But how much additional work is it? Am I correct in thinking the thermostat doesn't sit behind the waterpump like on some VAG engines? Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk

    A3 thermostat change

    Old thread I know, but just the topic I am looking for. A3 2.0 TDI CR (CFGB) is having another cambelt and waterpump soon (annoying 5 year limit for UK) . I have my doubts the thermostat is good and would like it changed, if it makes sense to do so with the other work. Is there much extra...

    2011 A3 2.0 TDI - 5K0 915 105 G battery - is this lead acid (not AGM)?

    I called a couple of Audi parts depts and they all stated the replacement part number for the A3 battery was 000 915 105 CC. From a Google image search, I concluded this is an AGM battery. That swayed the decision for me, AGM replacement it is. Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk

    2011 A3 2.0 TDI - 5K0 915 105 G battery - is this lead acid (not AGM)?

    A recon on the CTEK hasn't revived it, so definitely need to replace I think. I've attached am image of the measuring blocks post charge. This is moments after disconnecting the CTEK MXS 5 charger, that thinks the battery is in good health. It's the low Ah reading which is why it wont start I...

    2011 A3 2.0 TDI - 5K0 915 105 G battery - is this lead acid (not AGM)?

    Hi all, Much searching around later, I am not entirely clear on the following & would appreciate your input please. Our 2011 A3 2.0 TDI 170 (with stop-start) has the original Moll 5K0 915 105 G battery. Now so far as I can tell, this is a conventional lead acid battery and not an AGM. I think...

    Supersport Seats Tablet Mount

    Did you ever find a solution? Old post revival I know, but just the question I have, I knew someone must have had this problem before. Sorting our A3 was easy with a conventional headrest mount, but I am lost for a solution for the Supersports in the S4.

    B9 A4/S4 Mirror to Mirror Dimensions

    Close enough that I would take the official figures as correct. Published figures for the B8 were 2006mm, but it is really 2040mm (as published for the B8.5) some 34mm wider.

    B9 A4/S4 Mirror to Mirror Dimensions

    Massive thank you for going to the trouble. Interestingly the body of the B9 is wider than the B8 (marginally) as you would expect with a newer generation car, but the absolute width of the B9 mirror to mirror less than the B8 (the B8 is 2040mm). Even the B9 S5 Sportback which I am also...

    B9 A4/S4 Mirror to Mirror Dimensions

    Thanks, but that site has the same error in the data for the B8 as Audi published, so it's no more trustworthy than the Audi brochure. Hopefully someone has a helper that can assist them take a measurement for me. The really cautious could use a piece of string.
