    Adjusting A1 High Beam Assist "cut in" with VCDS

    I would like to lower the "cut in" speed for High Beam Assist on my wife's 2014 A1 Style - at present it's up around the 41mph mark and I want to lower it down to about 30mph cut in by adjusting the coding using a VCDS cable. Would anyone know the coding I need to use for this please, or where...

    Audi Retrofits

    Has anybody used them (the company called Audi Retrofits in Dartford)? Any comments? Have pm'd NHN about some retrofits and awaiting a response, however I think he is possibly too far away from me and Audi Retrofits are more local to me in Kent. http://audi-retrofits.co.uk/ My only concern...

    Audi Mailbox?

    Maybe it's me, but what is Mailbox that appears in the MMI under phone, what does it do, how do you set it up, and, more importantly is it any use? Have read the manual, but really none the wiser.......not sure if I am missing anything? If I select it, it asks me for a mailbox number - where...

    Picked up my RSQ3 today (replacing my S3)

    So as promised some pictures of my RSQ3, which I picked up from Crawley Audi this morning. What a car, so much the same as my S3 in so many ways yet so very different - especially in the way it picks up and performs. Nice to sit up a little more as well, and so very comfortable at the same time...

    Audi Connect Data Sim

    i'm trying to determine what size data SIM I need for Audi Connect - I appreciate that that will determine how much I may use the services, but just wondering what others have gone for / experiences. Thoughts presently are around a 2Gb/month will suffice, but you can get smaller at say 500Mb -...

    Bye Bye S3! Hello Q3RS!!!

    Well its been a very enjoyable 2 years of ownership, but finally decided it was time for the S3 to go. As of this Sunday, I will be the proud owner of a 2015 Q3RS (340ps version) - looking forward to it! Will look in from time to time, but will now probably "move" to the Q3RS section :(...

    I love these in-built surprises!

    My S3 has been good as gold of late, nothing to surprise me - until today. Nipped out down the shops, parked car, steering lock on etc etc - when I came back, unlocked car, got and in and shut the door. Next thing I know, stereo is on, MMI screen comes up, navigation is initialising - all before...

    18 Month Check (free) check

    Card through door today - Audi would like to do a free 18 month check on my S3. That's good I thought, nice one. Till I stopped and thought a minute - hang on - I've had my car 22 months now! It's booked in for its 2 year service at beginning of March in just 5 weeks time. Bit pointless then...

    MMI Paired Phone Deletion - How?

    OK, so how does one delete paired phones from one's MMI that you no longer have or don't know about - just connected my new phone to my system and it tells me it can't load the contacts because there are more than 4 phones already connected - so I need to delete some. When I paired my new phone...

    Sat Nav Query (Technology Package)

    Maybe I'm using the Sat Nav incorrectly, or am just plain dumb when it comes to using it - but having read the manual (yes I have done that) I'm still not sure if I have an issue with my Sat Nav or not. The problem comes with entering house numbers / street names. If I enter a Post Code, the...

    So S3 SB owners - I'm just wondering.....

    .....what you use the space for under the boot floor, in front of the spare wheel. I've found it to be a bit of a nothing space really, and not really useable from the layout, nothing much - if anything - seems to fit in there. Has anyone found a use for this space? I'm intrigued if you have as...

    Is it just me or...........

    ...............does anyone else keep forgetting their phone when they lock up and leave their car? Number of times I've plugged it onto the wire in the centre console, put the armrest down, got to where I'm going and realised some 10 minutes or so after I've locked the car up that I've left my...

    So very very miffed!!!

    I've had my S3 just over a year now, and in that time, despite most of its miles being on motorways, I hadn't even picked up a stone chip in over 8k miles Until this morning. Driving down an A road on way towards motorway and I see a cement mixer lorry approaching me in the other lane. We...

    Sick S3

    So driving home around the M25 this evening from Woking to home some 70 miles), somehow my S3 just didn't seem "right" in the 2-3k rev range, sluggish response, and a kind of take-off sitting in to itself at 3k revs. And then we hit the traffic queue back from the Dartford crossing around the...

    Unsettling Noises - but not all the time?

    So - I'm not sure if my S3 S-Tronic has a problem or not. On Saturday, as the wife was in the car (and sporty driving is not viewed favourably LOL) I had drive select set to auto. Pulling away gently no problem, and went through gears no problem. Pulling away and then putting foot down for quick...

    So if you ordered your car all over again....

    OK, so we all go through the options list and think mmmm that's nice I'll add that. But on reflection now you've bought your Audi and it's spec'd to how you ordered it........so rather than rave about what options you have fitted and how brilliant they are, looking at the converse: - which...

    S3 - Efficiency mode DOES work!

    My drive each day is 74 miles each way in heavy rush hour traffic from J29 on the M25 to J11 via the Dartford Crossing. About 10 miles to get to the M25 from home cross country, and about 6 miles from J11 into Woking. Normally being rush hour I use Drive select in Auto mode - which on the trip...
