    Petrol cap not opening

    Oh dear - I thought that VAG has sorted this issue out by now. My son's Polo - 10 years old - has this annoying fault. It's the acuator which locks / unlocks the cap. Replaced it twice over the life of the car. Had it on my Golf Mk 7 Seems that it's still an issue!

    Map Updates

    I find that if I log onto the My Audi website on my PC that sometimes it seems to think that I am in a non EU country - usually it gives me data in km and not miles - and then there is no map to download. I find that logging off and then checking the country shown in the bottom right as UK...

    MMI - main user unable to login

    I never selec the user when I drive off. I leave the message there and it clears after a short period of time. The only time I might dismiss it manually is when I need to change the radio before I drive off. Land guidance is a mixed blessing / curse. I have to say while it's annoying I don't...

    MMI - main user unable to login

    I had this message this morning for the first time - it kept telling me that there had been a fault and I could not be logged in. Seems to have solved itself tonight on the journey home - perhaps it's another Audi network issue!

    Issues with the A3 tech

    It's on page 30 of the manual - but no list of what it can do. Only way I did it was trial and error - and my saying Hey Audi - then saying nothing. A list then appears on the screen.

    Issues with the A3 tech

    I think I am right that if you say help I will list out all the commands that it can do. I mostly use the voice feature to ring numbers on the mobile or to dictate a text. I sometimes use it to change radio station or play my USB playing.
