    Not sure if anyone else has received the above booklet from Audi UK but mine landed on the doorstep this morning. The booklet contains useful tips and reminders on how to use some of the car functions like electromechanical handbrake, remote key operation, wiper service position etc.

    Pretty much knew them all but thought it was a really nice touch from Audi UK, well done guys ...quality service.

    Agreed. Mine arrived this afternoon. Nice to know that you haven't been forgotten about once you've picked up your car :)

    Hi, I'd be very interested in reading this. Anyone with the time to scan it into a pdf and make it available to download?

    The book mentioned putting my wipers in service mode. I looked in the MMI and couldn't find the option. Can you put the wipers in service mode on the 8V.

    You can, but it's just done on the wiper stalk, not through the MMI. That's one of the mistakes I spotted.

    Probably the same way as on the 8P: switch off engine and then give the wiper stalk a flick. The wipers will go half-way and stop there.
