    Reverse Sensors, no display on MMI???

    Hi @DJAlix Can you fit OEM reversing camera (high) to a Facelift 8V S3 Sportback for that price? I have VCDS and just tried the update to enable reversing cameras to find it failed, which led me to this thread! I only bought the car yesterday (for my wife), and told her I could enable the...

    SQ5 Start Stop Fault (Stuck in Neutral)

    I took it to the dealer and they couldn't find a fault. Hadn't happened to me since, but had happened once when my wife was driving. Most of the time I'm in dynamic and I don't think stop/start engages as much, I also frequently disable it!

    SQ5 Start Stop Fault (Stuck in Neutral)

    Bought the car privately, but have been in touch with the supplying dealer (as its also my usual dealer) and it's booked in for investigation under warranty. I've got VCDS and I've run a scan and no errors. From what I've read, from other people who've had the same issue, this is not unusual...

    SQ5 Start Stop Fault (Stuck in Neutral)

    I've seen reports on other forums of issues with the automatic stop / start. Engine stops as expected, starts as expected but then when you try and accelerate you get an error on the DIS and you can't pull away. Car appears to be stuck in Neutral, even though in D. Knock it into N and back to...

    Unfortunately not a recent version that covers this car, must be 5+ years old.

    SQ5 Retrofit Reversing Camera

    I know it can be done, like I said I've also some experience of retrofits, and pretty much every tool I can imagine you'd need. I've usually been able to find a good "how to" guide showing you what needs doing, makes it a lot easier than trying to just figure it out! Is the Q5 set up the...

    SQ5 Retrofit Reversing Camera

    Picking up an SQ5 in the week, I'm pretty sure it's one of the first MY15 models (it's June 2014, but has no space saver and the chrome strips on the door handles). Good spec, everything I'd order (and some I wouldn't), apart from the reversing camera or "Audi Parking System Plus" as its...

    Sportback rear door external trim replacement

    Thanks, am hoping the dealer will get the part in time to fit it before I pick the car up on Tuesday. They are being replaced on a new used approved car I've bought, but I need the car Wednesday, so if they aren't fitted I'm tempted to tell them to just mail them to me and I'll fit them...

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    I had the mechatronic on my old S3 done under warranty, so have an idea of what's involved and the costs. Am hoping it won't come to that, but thanks for the heads up on the place in reading. Oil change booked for next month, fingers crossed that's all that's required.

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    Not what anyone wants to hear... How many miles/age? Any other symptoms I should look out for, maybe time to px it in!

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    Other half also thinks it is using more petrol than usual, not sure it actually is or if that could really be linked to the gearbox unless it's not choosing gears correctly
