    Climate Control

    Is there a way to control both passenger and drivers side climates using the drivers side control?
    I assumed this was pretty much standard on all cars, my 1er had it.

    (its because I have a bit of OCD, I must have both temps the same lol)

    Climate Control

    Not got the new A3 as yet but on the previous model all you had to do was hold the auto button for a few seconds and both sides temp would sync to drivers and the temp would remain sync until a passenger changed their side.

    One of the new A3 drivers would need to advise on the new car mind you as no doubt things will be different :-)

    Its the same - hold auto for 3 secs. If you briefly touch the Auto button it puts it in a special ECO mode, which is not the same as having A/C off.

    I'm with you here!

    I even use the steering wheel volume so that the power symbol on my radio is always perfectly upright at 12 o'clock. If someone gets in the car and turns it, I get cold sweats. (Actually that last bit isn't strictly true.)
