    Safety Recall: 80C5 heater element

    Hi, got a recall from Audi suggesting that the supplementary heater needs to be replaced as it can lead to smoulder damage or even fire. Anyone else got this recall? Inconvenient as it is, sounds pretty important.

    Tyres - Where to buy

    Hi, I used to buy the tyres for my car from Camskill. But found out that they don't do the Pirelli R18 245/40 tyres anymore. Is there another good site to get them? Or if anyone recommends others like Conti or Goodyear I would also like to consider others. Cheers.

    problem Audi dealer

    Read the term and conditions. I'm sure there is a clause where you can give it back within a certain time period. This rule should apply to most purchased goods, including a car. Personally I would never buy a car that I haven't seen. But now that you are in this situation. Sounds like you...

    Basic question on camera detection sensitivity in parking mode

    Thanks RAF. Yeah I didn't think it was that sensitive. But good to know the power magic can do 6-7 hours. But then again, if some nutter wants to scratch the car, there's not much I can do.

    Basic question on camera detection sensitivity in parking mode

    Hi, have a basic question. Would the in car camera detect someone keying your car in parking mode? I know it will detect a bump but what about key scratch where it may not be done with the same force. Thanks.

    A4 Servicing Recommendations

    Yes you did. Cheers for that. A few of you have now mentioned this price match thing, which is what I will try to do with Audi. Bottom line is: I'm not paying the current Audi quoted prices, thats for sure.

    Thanks Scotty. I will phone Audi in the next couple of days to see what they say. Tbh, if they make it hard for me I'm just going to go Indy. Its just oil and filters change.

    A4 Servicing Recommendations

    Thanks guys. I'm not so in love with Audi garages and I know they charge far too much. Hence I'm looking for recommendations for a good Indy place not too far from me (London-Stevenage-Cambridge) I'll obviously get a quote at least. I also didn't think Audi take this price match thing...
