    Brand new tyres out of shape?!

    Did you get anywhere with the dull sound you were experiencing? I've got a dull noise coming from front wheel that i suspect could be tyre noise or something, though brand new car so not sure.

    Squeaky suspension, only 1000miles on clock

    Hi, my new A4 Avant black edition seems to have a squeaky suspension on the rear driver side. Not noticeable while driving, just noticed it when getting in and out of the car. Give the car a little shake at that corner and it squeaks, as the video demonstrates. Only 1000miles on the car. Assume...

    Help needed! Clutch problem?

    Exactly my thoughts. I think they'd notice tbh, but not a sure thing. Other complexity is the car's due for collection in July, but serivce due at start of June according to indicator, so would possibly be caught at the service anyway. I would contemplate handing back early as not using it...

    Help needed! Clutch problem?

    Looking for some thoughts on a technical issue starting to show on my car. It's a 2018 (21 months old) 1.4 TFSI Manual BE Avant. 2 year PCH car so due back soon! Only 14000miles on it. Anyway, during anything more than 'very gentle' acceleration in 3rd and 4th gears (not noticed in other gears...

    Poor MPG 1.4 auto Avant

    I've just recently change from a 2016 A4 B9 Avant 1.4 Sport to a 2018 A4 B9 Avant 1.4 BE, both manual. The way the car drives, and the fuel economy, are both quite different, even though it's the same engine. First 1k in new car I'm long term averaging approx 36.5, made up mainly of a 14...

    So it's taken nearly 8 months, but finally picked up the new car. 1.4 Manual BE Avant. Due to work commitments it unfortunately sat at the docks for a couple of days before I could pick it up, so was already a bit dusty. Took a couple of quick photos though and will get it cleaned up over the...

    1.4 Manual Avant Black Edition, with the optional v-spokes instead of the rotors. A lease, so no extras, and in lease black (current one is lease white so fancied a change!)

    yourAudi - Track New Car Order

    Judging by the WLTP shenanigans, it appears this thread may be quiet for a few months. Sorry to those who appear to have a long wait ahead, but my own wait is finally coming to an end. 7 and a half months after ordering my car has finally gone status 70. Due to holidays here in Northern...

    yourAudi - Track New Car Order

    Order tracker been at 38 for a couple of weeks now. Spoke to CS on live chat and car is at the UK Port (Grimsby I think) and transport order raised yesterday morning, so not long now hopefully! And another example of the tracker not being very accurate!

    Tracker jumped from Panel Shop to Quality Control overnight. Checking the JSON (below) and it actually states it at Status 30, with VIN Number and all available, so appears QC didn't take long! I know the tracker isn't accurate, but the JSON data showing an order history with future dates in...

    yourAudi - Track New Car Order

    From my experience and from what you're saying here, it appears to be Swansway dealers that have long lead times! And if what I was told regarding my order is true, it's solely down to too many orders vs allocation, and nothing to do with wheels or part shortages (they gave me that excuse too...
