    Creaking Suspension

    I'm getting a creaking noise too - from my rear suspension. Seems to happen when I slow down to a halt. The car is 14 months old from new. Would this still be covered under warranty?

    Mobile phone volume too quiet through the car speakers

    Hi, I have my Android mobile phone connected to Android Auto via the USB port under the driver's arm rest in my 2017 facelift A3. When I'm having a hand's free conversation, I can barely hear the person on the other line on the the car's speakers. I have to increase the speaker volume to...

    Does slowing down with cruise control on apply brake lights?

    Hi, I am currently loving using cruise control on the M6 where there are road works going on along a stretch of motorway where the speed limit is 50 MPH just outside of Birmingham. If the car is going too fast i.e. the road is on a download slope and cruise control slows the car down to...

    Trouble seeing what automatic gear I've selected

    Hi, It's a sunny day today, but in bright sunlight I have trouble seeing what gear (P, R, N, D/S) I've selected on the S tronic gear box. Usually the gear that is selected glows in white, but on sunny days it's hard to see. Anyone else have the same issue? Ideally the glow should be a brighter!

    Glacier Metallic White or Ibis Solid White?

    I have the Ibis white and don't regret it one bit. It's really bright if that's the look you're after. I used to have the Amalfi White on the PFL and didn't really like it as it was kind of creamy looking, but not so with the Ibis which is white than white.

    Car vacuum cleaner - how do you do yours?

    Which boot liner have you got? I use a bath mat as a boot liner, but still end up with bits of crud underneath as there isn't a lip to capture the dirt.

    Car vacuum cleaner - how do you do yours?

    I very rarely use the portable one, probably once every 3 months. However recently the council have stopped taking away garden green waste unless a fee is paid (grrr), so I had to go to the recycling centre with 4 huge bags of grass cuttings/hedge trimmings in the car. Inevitably some of the...

    Car vacuum cleaner - how do you do yours?

    I have a black and decker portable vacuum cleaner, but still find the nozzle too big and clumsy to use. Thinking of getting another portable one, this time with a flexible hose to get in hard to reach crevices. Interested to know what do you guys use? Rechargeable?Nothing beats the home use...

    Facelift Data service not available - Please insert a SIM card

    I got this error message too when i was using the sat nav in Google maps mode. I wonder if Google maps has lost data connection and then the error message appears. I'm going to try the sat nav on standard mode rather than Google mode and see if the error still appears.

    How to clean door compartments?

    Great ideas guys! I never realised the rubber bottoms could be pulled out. I'll give it a go tomorrow. Guess the OCD in me took over

    How to clean door compartments?

    Hi, Just been giving my car and spring clean today and found a load of biscuit crumbs in the door compartments and some dust at the bottom of the compartment under the arm rest. I tried to use my portable vacuum cleaner to suck up the dirt but the nozzle was too thick to reach the bottom of...
