    Hi guys I've just got ETKA 7.3 and starting to get to grips with it, just wondering can you search by using a reg or VIN number?
    Also any other tips or pointers?

    Cheers Chris

    Definitely NOT reg. and unlikely by VIN.

    What is it you need to see ?

    You can put in the VIN but itll only return a choice of Engines to choose which you can then select your engine. Works fine for engine stuff,
    not so for bodywork such as S Line kit etc.

    Basically you can only enter the correct model (A3) and the year. All the other searches using VIN number etc required a live connection to the main Audi computer setup which is only available to dealers.

    if you are looking for parts related to a certain model then do a search under the atp tab and put in a full part number and select all models. it will bring up which models the part fits to and what year cars it will fit on.
    or if you are looking for a part number then just select the car model from the list and then year and then do a search on the term tab and you should see the parts for that model.
    if you are wanting more specific stuff like lhd/rhd or quattro models then when you find the part, right click it and select pr number and it will give you the variables for that part.

    It isnt advisable to discuss etka & the use of it on here for obvious reasons, it attracts unwanted attention, use PM's is my advice :)
