    New order…

    And not the band! Placed an order on a new A4 at the end of June and have still yet to have any real confirmation from the dealer that the factory have accepted/acknowledged the order. Contacted the sales person a couple of weeks ago as I’d heard nothing and again today - still no update and...

    Configurator Changes

    Looks like the Vorsprung has just left the configurator! Any thoughts as to whether it’s just a glitch - BE seems to be gone too...

    Lesser of two diesels

    Ok so it’s time to start the game of tennis with the dealer that is buying a new car, put it off too long and missed out on the 9.25 or whatever you want to call it so am stuck with the touch screen. My MY17 had a few boxes ticked and now find myself having to spec a Vorsprung to get the options...

    iOS CarPlay

    For those who use it and find CarPlay a little......ugly, iOS 13 is available on beta now and it has a completely new look on the mmi which is much nicer.

    Ring tone

    Its not the biggest deal but I can remember changing the ring tone for incoming calls to a connected telephone - having a look through today whilst sat in traffic and it’s now no longer available, saying that this feature is not supported by the phone. Can someone please have a look and see if...

    Airbag recall

    Has anyone had the side curtain airbag recall done yet? Mine has been in three times before they committed to do the work this time, got a call from the sm earlier to say it wouldn’t be ready to collect as they wouldn’t have time to finish it today - he said the headliner and trim was all still...

    AMI retrofit problems

    Hi everyone, Posting on behalf of a friend who has just purchased a 2007 lemans with 2G MMI and is in the process of doing the AMI retrofit. So far he has updated the software to 5570 from eBay discs, swapped the units over and just gets a message saying device may not be connected or working...

    Where did all the petrol stations go?

    Whilst navigating to a destination, the display used to show service stations along the route - down the left hand side, in the list of up-coming junctions. I've noticed on the last few journeys this hasn't happened - is it just me? Found this feature really useful even if I'm not stopping for fuel

    Scratched trim

    Thouht someone might be interested - managed to scratch the piano black trim around the centre console quite badly when I (very) gently dusted it with a serviette whilst bored in traffic. Wasn't really thinking and still don't know why I did it - I've been so careful with it till now. Anyhow...

    Another connect issue....

    Has anyone had problems with google maps displaying today? Set off for Fishguard and when I crossed into Wales I lost google maps on the mmi display, it still worked as a sat nav, just displayed a brownish green smudge for all the surrounding area - a bit like normal display but with no...

    Fuel Tank Size

    can someone who has the larger diesel and adblue tanks please check if their service book has the option codes for these. OM1 and FK2 I spec'd these but they don't appear on my optional equipment in the service book - filled up with fuel earlier and admittedly, the low warning hadn't come on...

    Ultra or no

    Hi, So after leaving a deposit with the dealer for nearly three months while I waited for the release of the black styling pack, I finally got an order number for build. (For those of you still holding out for the BSP - good news! Having just ordered a car without it, I'm positive the BSP will...

    Inspection Service reset

    Hi, I've used VCDS to reset the oil service but there is no option in the drop down for UK inspection reset, only USA or Canada. I have read about reading and resetting the values for channels 40 41 53 55 and 02 to zero and haven't tried that yet - just thought it strange that you can't do it in...

    Auto dimming mirrors

    Can anyone who has dimming side mirrors tell me if you can turn them off (like you can with the dimming rear view mirror)? The salesman talked me out of it because he said they are £400 to replace if you break one! It was something I did want but now I'm not sure... I'm assuming that this early...

    B&O Sub

    Hi, Does anyone know why there would be a difference between the B&O system in a B8 A4 avant and one in a B8.5 avant? I have the former and the bass is, I think, quite good but a colleague has the latter and despite spending a good half hour, we could not get the bass to sound as good. It almost...

    Which auto box

    Is it possible to tell which auto box (s-tronic or multitragic) an A4 has other than going by the build sticker? I've been looking for an s-tropic avant for months but nothing is coming up for what I want to pay I know you could only have s-tronic on a Quattro but does that mean that if it is a...

    Avant Rear Shock Absorbers

    Hi, Over the last few weeks the handling of my car has deteriorated drastically and I'm pretty sure the right rear shock has failed - it has become quite unstable in the last few days and feels like it patters when you hit a sunken roadwork or trench. Going to give TPS a call in the morning but...
