    Appeal parking ticket?

    I got a parking ticket today from our local council (I didn't pay and display, but genuine mistake, I mis-read the sign!). Apparently I drive a silver Aston Martin, rather than an Audi!! However, the reg is correct, is this grounds to appeal do you think?

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    Nope, I wasn't dreaming, it does work. Going to do shocks and springs as first mod, so will re-open this book now I know it's not mega expense.

    B7 tdi 3.0 Quattro - handling upgrade?

    I don't want to spend much TBH, baby and new house are high on my priority list right now! I don't expect the handling to be as sharp as an RS4 or anything :) but I'd like it to ride lower, stiffer and have a bit more 'feel' than the 'sponge' it has at the moment!

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    Will have a proper listen in the morning, but pretty sure it was making noise... Or perhaps I just hoped it was!! Will write back!

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    Cheers Craig! Yeah I've got an avant, but seems to have a centre speaker?? On top of the dash, near the windscreen air vents. It doesn't look like an expensive thing to retrofit, which is good, given the new renovation project and baby due in June! If I'm taking the door cards off, I might...

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    ..true that, it might just be the difference between the two chassis as you first pointed out Craig, sound is one of those things that's really subjective I guess. I just found out that a colleague of mine also has an A4 avant (B6) without Bose, I'll see how the two compare, perhaps I'm just...

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    Blackie, that's strange, I love the way my S3 sounds. I guess it's different strokes for different folks! I'm no audiophile, so my taste is probably not one others would want, I just know my A4 sounds really weird, like something's missing!!

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    Thanks Craig, if i go the bose route, i'll likely be asking a whole bunch of additional questions! I really would prefer as OEM as possible I was going to compare between SD card MP3's and the iPod, then I remembered that while the Dension is plugged in, all sound to the speakers is running...

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    Craig, what do you think is the best way forward?

    Non-Bose B7 A4 (RNS-E) quality?

    Hey folks, I jut swapped my S3 (8P) with RNS-E and Bose, for an A4 (B7) with RNS-E and non-Bose. I connect my iPod through a Dension GW100 and this seems to just be a straight swap between the cars. Dension quote the same part-no in their compatibility lists, but, I'm sure something isn't quite...

    Seatbelt Warning Chime?

    Do you know if you can disable the lights-left-on chime through VCDS?

    Seatbelt Warning Chime?

    I can confirm there is a cable clipped to the side of the seat belt "receiver". Sadly no CH/LH lights, but would be nice to add them at a later date! :)
