    I'd be interested to know if it was a change you requested when ordering, as I'm just in the process of ordering a Sportback BE 2.0TDI 170 as a company car and prefer the plain alcantara (i.e. as applicable to the Sport range) to the perforated stuff that is standard on the BE's.

    Thanks
    Yer it is the angle.. it is the perforated stuff.. To be honest, initially I prefered the smooth stuff I had in my s3, but it has grown on me - now I really like the perforated stuff, it feels reall nice and looks more modern somehow than the previous stuff...?

    New BE owners help please

    Any of you folks got any ideas about the B* Radio turning itself on Loud every time we start up?

    Is there a setting in MMI to silence it? We have Tech PAck with Nav and Bose.

    Details and suggestions so far are here but not a lot of help.

    Radio always comes on LOUD


    Thanks in advance

    I had a similar problem but don't have sat nav - I adjusted my gala settings and that seems to have sorted it.

    Hey, i have ordered a BE 170BHP 3 door. I was just wondering how you've managed to get one with a black roof? Is it after market or can it be done by audi? Thanks.

    I think you are going to find that it is the open sky roof option on the sportback iirc

    Sorry mate, I just don't understand your comment. Not intending to be *****y at all. All I thought was the Paintshop swirly number plates looked a bit silly. ;-0

    Finally I received my new Brilliant Red Black Edition 2.0tdi 170 on Thursday - less than 5 months after I ordered it - must be some kind of record. It's bog standard, other than the addition of cruise control and a Dension iPod kit that went in straight away. 700 miles done so far and pretty pleased with it. Colour was my daughter's choice - when deciding on which car to get her opinion was that it should be red....

    Hi Nicksa3

    Glad your please with your car, how are you finding the 170? Did you opt for Manual or S-Tronic?. I have a new 170 SB BE S-Tronic and done just over 1000 miles and loving every minute of it.

    I went for the manual; costs were escalating as it was! But so far, it's great. I'm hoping the engine will loosen up a bit, but it's one hell of an improvement over my last car, a Honda Accord.

    totally agree mate - AMI sounds great, but you can only have it if you also spec the RSN-E correct? I was talking about the ipod dock with the standard headunit being pants!!

    Yeah you need the RNS-E to get the AMI.

    Standard iPod kit is crap. Much better spending the money on a Dension gateway.

    I agree the standard CD Changer type iPod dock isn't up to much, I was simply concerned you'd discounted the AMI

    I ordered Sound Pack (which upgrades CD to 6x and includes IPOD dock) as you say it's pretty crap for a £200 option - Just use the AUX socket - its free !!

    Aux is even worse.

    Best bet is Dension Gateway.

    I have to say i found it such hard work picking the extras from the brochure!

    I've just checked my order confirmation with the lease company and i've managed to order the AMI, but not the RNS-E ! I wonder what i will end up with!

    I think i might end up buying a Dension gateway!

    Yeah I found it very confusing! In the end the price of the AMI & RNS-E combined was way too much! (if it was cheaper I would've gone for it as i think it's a great bit of kit!!)

    Will probably end up going for the Dension gateway as the sensible option!

    Your best bet is to put your spec. in the Audi Used website and see if there's a match, if so you have your price

    I have to say this is what i thought was going to happen with the AMI in the Audi. But after reading the above, i'm now even more confused than when i read the brochure!!

    I test drove a Passat and that had the VW equivalent of the AMI and it was great, all the music info came up on the DIS. I hope i'm lucky and thats how it works in the A3

    How much is this Denison Kit (I know there's various options) but I would just like to play my Ipod by choosing the options through DIS as above. And is it a DIY fit or dealer/shop fit ?

    Guys,

    What is it that's so bad about the Ipod dock in the glove box?

    I've not had the order confirmation so there could still be a chance to change, save my money and get the Denison kit. Which looks awesome if it works the same way as shown above.

    I got it for my birthday from my old man but I think it was around £129 with the cable.

    Dead easy to fit, just pop the stereo out then fir that between the quadlock on the back of the headunit and run the ipod cable into the glove box!

    You get the first 6 playlists. It's just epically **** tbh, no way of selecting what you want and then when it does play, it's all random.

    It's actually that much of a fail that I still burn tunes onto cd's when I use my dad's A3!
