Hi guys, my first post so please be gentle with me ;)

I've just picked up my first audi, a 4.0 tdi A8.

It seems to have the electronic gremlins- a friend of mine is one of the head techs at the local Audi dealership so hoping he can sort it out when I get round to booking it in, but I was windering if anyone has ever come across any of the following 'issues'?

  • 'Anti-glare' door mirrors permanently in 'anti-glare' setting
  • Dash defaults to german every time car is turned off for more than an hour
  • Finger-print reader not working properly - says 'fingerprint not recognised' if I press it, 'one touch not installed' if I try and set users through the MMI
  • Keyless entry not working, although sometimes it will start without the key by pressing the fingerprint reader... wierd.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Simon

Simon, it does sound like you're the victim of the early D3 electronic gremlins. Do persevere, as once sorted you'll love the car :icon_thumright:
