    Back in the Audi game

    I had a B9 saloon from 2016 to 2020, when it was written off. I needed a car very quickly so got a BMW 3 Series. Yesterday I placed an order for a maxed out A4 saloon in District Green. If anyone can point me to a PDF of the UK user manual, I would be very grateful. So much to re-learn. To...

    This might be of interest to 2016/17 B9 owners

    I have a 2016 A4 with quite a few options/extras. In 2016 the list price was £41,105. I have been given a PX value of between £12,500 and £13,500 by Audi. I have done 87,800 miles. Today I specced an identical car (current MY19 model) which came in at £45,310 list. I am able to simply hand...

    Armrest stuck in raised position

    Anyone had this happen? Any bright ideas? My armrest works perfectly fine (in case the topic title is confusing). It goes up and down and in and out quite normally. However today, for the first time in over 2 years, I cannot get it down to the low position. It doesn’t sound as if anything is...

    Text messages disappeared - problem solved

    Just in case any other members have had this problem. I use an iPhone and do not use CarPlay. A few weeks ago (perhaps after updating to iOS 12 - or perhaps just one of those things), I lost my text message menu. I lost the notifications that would come up when I got a text message. It drove...

    Air con query / problem?

    I have a B9 TDI 190 Saloon. I have done about 53,000 miles and do have the air con on as standard. Today was the first decent weather. With the ignition on, but the engine off, I can toggle the air con switch to show ON, ECO ON, and OFF lighting up. If I switch the engine on, only OFF will...

    Second service: unwelcome surprise.

    I reckon I have probably done more miles than most, so I thought I would share this. I am coming up for my second service at 36,000 miles. My local Audi dealership quoted me £328, which was about what I paid for the first one. They then rang me and explained that at 37,000 miles i'd need the...

    How desperate or concerned are the dealers currently?

    I am a year into my PCP and when I bought the car was advised that they would contact me 20 months or so in to the PCP, with a view to trying to get me into a new vehicle. I am perfectly happy with my A4, and a like for like replacement would cost me rather more, due to price rises / exchange...

    Jaguar XE is no match for the A4

    My A4 is in for a new rear bumper as the result of someone driving into the back of me. I've been given an XE in the meantime. Making every allowance for the fact that it's a manual and less powerful than my A4, the 2 do not compare favourably. The driving position (even with adjustment) is...

    Locked keys in the car

    A word of warning.... So here we are on the way to the airport. Pull over at a petrol station. My wife and I get out of the car with the keys under the armrest. She opens and closes the boot and the car locks! Thankfully our 5 year old is still inside and over the noise of the alarm is...

    Could the new A5 Coupe turn your head?

    It may be sacrilege on this particular forum, but If I didn't need 5 seats, i'd be sorely tempted by the new A5 Coupe. I don't like the look of the A5 fastback, but If I just needed a 2 plus 2 I could well push the boat out for the coupe. I imagine that from up front, the cabin would appear...

    Where has my text notification gone?

    This may be more of an iPhone issue than an A4 one, but I'd really like some help. I never used Siri or CarPlay and much preferred the MMI. I had an old iPhone 6 when I bought the car in September. Then, when I got a new text message, I'd get a sound and green exclamation mark come up over the...

    Quattro vs xDrive vs 4Matic in the snow

    I know that the Audi shown here is an A6 and so probably off topic, but this comparison between it, the BMW and the Merc is quite satisfying to a Quattro driver.

    Setting up kerb view on folding mirrors

    I have the 6XE folding mirrors which includes a kerb view function in reverse. Sometimes (in fact only a few times) it has appeared to work, but most of the time if I set it to suit the view reversing, it fails to go back to the normal position. The instructions in the manual are not very...

    Using Alloygators on diamond cut wheels

    I was looking at using Alloygators on a new A4, since they seemed to offer more protection than Rimblades. I then saw on their website that they were not recommended for diamond cut wheels due to a risk of retaining moisture under them, which in turn might cause pitting. I'd be interested for...

    Audi A4 to talk to traffic lights

    According to this report, A4s built after 1/6/16 will be able to warn you when the lights are going to turn red. I'll believe it when I see it, since if there isn't the money to fill in potholes, I doubt there will be the money to create intelligent traffic lights. Unless of course the new...

    Audi Drive Select settings

    I couldn't see a thread on this. I'd be interested to know what settings people use. I'm not sure what the difference is between Auto and Dynamic. I have an S Line on order and so also have the option of individual but before I even think about non standard settings i'd like to know what the...

    Playing music from an SD card or Jukebox

    I'm about to take delivery of an A4. The largest SD card it can handle according to the MMI user manual is 128 GB. That is fine for all my music (about 8,500 tracks). Equally the 10GB Jukebox will be fine for 1,200 or so tracks. On looking at the MMI manual, it says this: "Filling the...
