    2011 A3 S-line BE Suspension experience

    Hi all - recently back in an 8P after years away in a B7 A4 and a Q5. I had an 8P Black Edition back in 2012-2014 and I don't remember the suspension (especially front) being quite so bouncy and maybe sloppy if that is a way to describe. Just wondering if that sounds normal and that its not just...

    Q5 Trailer / Tow bar prep on 2015 Q5 Confusion

    Just stepped up from my B7 A4 to a Q5 3.0 TDI S-line 2015 plate and I'm a little perplexed... The spec and Audi UK are convinced that it has trailer / tow prep and my online research suggests that if that is true there should be a cable bundle and plug lurking in the rear quarter cavity ready...

    OEM Number Plate Lights

    Hi all - ordered the Audi LED lights 4H0943021/4H0943022 plus the Kufatec resistor loom. However, tried without loom first - thinking they would work but DIS would error - but didn't come on at all? Put standard ones back and they illuminated fine. Anyone have similar on a B7? Am I being...

    Just wondering if anyone could share a scan of their Hunter 4 wheel alignment printout for a B7 A4 Quattro (Avant - but not sure this makes a difference) ?
