for the sticker on the visor just get the dealer to order a LHD one
A couple of questions:
1/ Are vehicles normally set up for Variable Longlife Service Interval as the default setting?
2/ Are vehicles still coming through with annoying sticker on the passenger sunvisor about child seats?
Yes and yes.
If the dealer provides the Sat Nav SD card (which I believe is the case rather than it coming with the vehicle) what is the best way to check that you have got the current version?
@ Zig - Vertigo started a thread a while back called "Ok, BST". You could try looking in there for details regarding versions...
Without checking as im not at home, but i think in the DVD type case the SD card comes in, the date is on a sticker inside.? failing that give it a london post code, if it comes back not found you know its old!! ive been to london, its been there years lol.
I will be collecting a SB, no tech pack but comes with the SD nav. Should I get any cables? If yes is it the blue one that comes standard with all A3's?
Yes you get cables. Ask for red cable if you want album artwork transferred across.
Thanks for the reply. Strange as I didn't get any cables at all when I got an A6 new shape with SD nav :S
My A3 8V came with a black iPod MMI cable (ref. 4F0 051 510 K) and I don't have any artwork displayed on the MMI screen.
Can you tell us the exact reference of the red cable ?
It's the colour of the grommet at the connectivity end that matters, not the colour of the cable itself - the one with the red grommet has the same number as that you quoted but with an 'R' replacing the 'K' so 4FO 051 510 R
I also found another reference with an S (4FO 051 510 S) with USB and adapter cable for iPod/iPhone.
Do you know this one ? Is it a cable with dual interfaces ?
There are several cables available - USB, iPOD, mini USB, RGB, 3.5 mm jack. Don't think there any dual interface cables but they do sell 'combo packs' with 2 cables in so maybe thats what you have identified.

Ok so just took delivery of my 2013 Black A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI S-line yesterday and the lead I have is black but with a small part of the connecter which is a kind of bergundy so I'm assuming this is the red lead? If so, I take it this explains why my ipod classic 160gb is not recognised by the car and that I need a blue lead?
ok so I kinda jumped the gun a bit and have answered my own question by reading more of the thread! What doesn't seem to be the norm is that mine came with the red lead where as most people say there's came with the blue. I'd be happy to swap my red one for blue if anyone needs a red?
Your dealer might be able to help you out and arrange the correct lead for you TR. A number of persons on here managed to wangle the correct lead.
I've just managed to buy one from a top rated seller on ebay for £8 + £1 delivery. That'll do for me! Thanks anyway SJW.
You welcome TR. Pretty sure I'm going to have a similar issue but the great people in here have certainly opened my eyes to some of the teething matters.
pushing this to the top of the pile just in case there are any new things to look out for from more recent owners that might be a help to us September collection folks.
Good idea thanks Dave
