    It's in the boot, you have to take the spare wheel out and some of the polysyrene inserts , then it's under a cover.

    Are you sure you haven't bought one of the newer fusion powered models?

    Don't be so evil guys :) On my S3 the battery is located in the second black box from the right:

    But i think the S3 has had its battery box moved back to improve weight distribution, so the 3.2 Quattro should have its box around the same place, probably a bit closer to the front of the engine bay :icon_thumright:

    the batteries definetly in the boot, under a metal plate on the right hand side, you have to take the spare wheel out and then remove the torx screws off the plate to access the battery.

    By the way it's not a standard normal battery, just had mine replaced under warranty

    Yes welcome to the site.

    To be fair i'd neber of thought of looking in the boot for the battery although I know lots of BMW cars do this to aid weight distribution.

    the reason it's in the boot, is because theres no room in the engine bay due to the lovely V6 in there

    If only Audi could come up with some way of gathering all the important information that an owner might require about their car and store it all in one central location. Perhaps they could publish them in some kind of booklet thing and they could even provide a nice leather folder to keep everything tidy.
