tell me about it, they want to keep the car in overnight so as a master tech can look at it tomorrow but they aren’t able to give me a courtesy car so I’ve had to decline so I’ll just have to book it in for another date.
So my car is in with Audi at the moment, I’ve just had a call from them to tell me that the car has been connecting to their phones fine and that they can’t find anything wrong with it... Great, I must be imagining it not connecting all those times?
I own both an 8v and an 8y, imo, the interior on the 8v is starting to look a bit dated, however, there is no escaping that some or the plastics are nicer in the 8v but that doesn’t make the 8y a horrible place to be, I find it quite pleasing, most of the lower quality plastics are in areas that...
pushing back on the gear selector puts it into sport mode or drive mode, it’s sprung loaded so always returns the middle. Selecting manual is done by touching the paddles... this is the first S-Tronic I’ve owned so not sure how that differs to the previous versions

I must be lucky as mines is nether lack-lister or juddering, so far, everyone that has been in my car has commented on how smooth it is, as for performance, I can’t tell the difference between this new 1.5 and my old 1.8tsi 8v A3.
I've had similar issues with mines, sometimes it wont connect which can be really frustrating, especially when I have to get out the car, lock it up, reopen and start again, it normally works after that. I spoke to Audi UK and they said that there isn't any updates available yet.
