    Lane Assist

    It worries me that its there, I would prefer drivers drive and concentrate and not let themselves get used to tech (which doesnt always work). I guess any safety option is good, but when I am cornering and I feel the judder and resistance it bugs me. The PreSense thing has caused a little...

    Sat Nav issues

    I found the Audi SatNav to be very hard to use, it kept deleting favorite places and was often unable to find locations ( even when you could see them on the maps ). Fortunately, Waze works very well now. The only issue is that it wont show on the dash screen, only audio and on the centre screen.

    AdBlue on the 2019 A6 Avant 40 TDI Quattro

    1) Is the AdBlue filler cap located next to the regular fuel cap? Yes, its a small blue cap next to the diesel one under the flap. 2) Can the AdBlue cap be opened by hand or does it need a special tool? It just unscrews like the diesel one, you get a inch wide tube with the AdBlue stuff and you...

    Floor Mats?

    Not the answer you were after, but I used one of the custom mat makers ( I think it was ). Very impressed, much thicker than any mat I had seen before, deadened the sound ( noisy Golf ) nicely and lasted well. Plus you can get loads of colour / edging options to make it...

    Where to log map issues

    Hi, is there a place to log problems with the map data ( ie junctions that have changed shape etc ) with Audi or who ever does their mapping ? I guess along the same lines ( but maybe the wrong section ) , is there a similar place to log issues such as the left hand side of the screen not...

    New A7 review 4 months in....disappointing.

    Yup had the same several times now, its the little details that let things down. I havent weened myself off from Waze as the address entry and search tools are terrible. Yesterday my partner wanted to go to the local Hobbycraft, it gave every Hobbycraft site around but the one 3 miles down the...

    Audi connect key, anyone got it working?

    I can lock and unlock it from the phone app ( after entering pin code etc ), but haven't seen how to start it or use the phone as a proximity key.

    No sound

    I guess obvious bits are to check volume on the various feeds. Is the mute light showing on the dash ? The little roller when on the right hand side of mine will mute if pushed. Otherwise it sounds like a loose connection / fuse. Sorry if teaching to suck eggs!!!!!!!!!!

    MPG - What are you driving and what are you getting?

    Its only a 3 mpg of from my old Golf which I think is pretty impressive what with it having more metal and more power. I wonder how far then can go with making cars more efficient.

    What Car Care / Detailing Have You Done Today ?

    Little 'peculiarities...

    Yup I can see similar in mine, if a bag is put down on seat next to rear passenger the light comes up warning. Mine seem to go off pretty fast, but still it is a pain them being sensitive to a kg of weight.

    Tyre Pressure

    Update : So I asked for the PDI sheet from Audi mentioning safety issues / concerns and general fed up-ness with them so far, they contacted Basingstoke ( Lookers ) Audi who then called me. They put their hands up to having failed to check / change the tire pressures. I asked what else would...

    Yes it does. A lot less tramlining and a little less harsh on bumps. :-)

    Tyre Pressure

    I have asked Audi UK for a complete list of all the checks that are supposed to be undertaken prior to a new car leaving the garage so i can get them checked.
