    New owner (some questions)

    I believe they are the speed limit reminders. Not quite sure where you are located but I suspect they correlate with the main speed limits for your different road types.

    Coin operated Car Washes Mcr

    Snow foam from top down then pressure wash from bottom up. I have seen folk use hand held pump pressure sprayers to do this but a pressure washer is going to be better. Make sure to concentrate on panel gaps. I found Bilthamber Autofoam to be the best. Two bucket technique one with the soap...

    Pilot Sport 4 or CrossClimate+? Oldham, UK

    Our Passat 4 Motion estate has Crossclimates and found them very good. Been using them for five years including all season driving in Scotland and driving to the continent during each summer. I have had separate summer and winter wheels on the A7 and changing them is a right pain although you...

    Q5 Best Snow Tyre for 255/40\R21

    Buy yourself a set of 20” replica wheels with winter tyres. That’s what I have done and found it cheaper than just buying the tyres in the larger size. Also winter tyres don’t like being repeatedly taken on and off and the sidewalls can go over the period of several seasons. Another benefit of...

    No internet connection, key user locked ......

    Has your phone changed? Or if you have an iPhone has your iOS changed? I got a new iPhone and it played up for a while. I remove the MyAudi App and Reset Network settings (which is a bit of a pain as you lose all your WiFi connections) on my phone and that sorted it.

    Audi A7/A6 C8 50 tdi torque/gearbox software update

    Had mine done yesterday. Noticed an immediate difference almost straight away. Power delivery is much smoother and more responsive. Pleased with the update.

    myAudi log in not available under users

    This the same technique I use to get logged back in. I had no access a few weeks back as the service was down. Seems OK now though.

    Scratches on side window (factory tint)

    Thanks! I am working at it with a small hand pad - probably not the right tool for the job!

    Scratches on side window (factory tint)

    Thanks for that. The glass is definitely scratched - but I thought it was in a tint but obviously not. Not sure if it will need replaced or whether if such things can be repaired?

    Scratches on side window (factory tint)

    Noticed small scratches in the rear passenger window- really shows up in the sun. Looks like the tint has been scratched. Is that possible? Is factory tint allows externally? Tried polishing the glass with CarPro CeriGlass which hasn’t made much difference. Any ideas? Car is a 2019 Vorsprung A7.

    Post your A7/S7 and RS7 pics here

    Here’s mine. Quite happy with the touch screen. A very different car from my old 2016 A7 though.

    Traffic Announcement Volume

    No response on the A7 forum - anyone hear know as it will be the same on the A6 (it’s re a 2019 A7). Thanks. Original post below: Anyone know how to set the volume on Traffic Announcements? Each time they come on (which I want) I turn it to the desired volume but next time it is back to is...

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

    Point 13 above - rattles: Mine come from the silver trim around the lower MMI at the top where it joins in behind the upper MMI. It stops when pushed - and when the car is at temperature. Another new annoyance is the washer jets for the head lights that seem to most cover the bonnet. Not sure...

    Traffic announcement volume

    Anyone know how to set the volume on Traffic Announcements? Each time they come on (which I want) I turn it to the desired volume but next time it is back to is incredibly loud default. Previously you could set volumes in the menu. In the new MMI I can’t find anywhere where there is a...

    Handbrake on engine shutoff

    It’s also automatically disabled when’s it’s been in the dealership because they always switch it off [emoji34] As others have said it disengages in reverse. It also behaves differently from my last Audi so I now always put the handbrake in first when parking up (something I never had to do...

    No 'real' spare tire are they kidding?

    My current A7 is my first without any spare wheel at all (previously another A7 and before that Jaguar XFS). I’ve just got a subwoofer instead! Well at least I’ll get some beats when waiting for recovery :) The missus Passat estate was a real surprise when I found it had not only a spare but a...

    Pre Sense - malfunction and remediation

    I have had this on the odd occasion - always sorts itself out after 5 or 10 minutes. The system doesn’t seem to like twilight. Other than that I wonder if it is condensation on the window or something?
