    Happy 1st Birthday and Service

    I need to get mine booked, well under 12 months, but just coming up to 9k, going to get them to check out the rough running on a cold start, and the brakes, which can make a bit of noise at low speeds (presumably when it's actually using the pads because there's not enough engine speed to take...

    Battery range

    It doesn't affect range at all, only charge time. You'd need a bigger battery to get more range

    A3 E-tron mpg so far

    That's basically the approach I'm taking, EV wherever possible, because even if it's not a free charge it's a fraction of the cost of petrol, despite charging almost every night it's not made a significant impact on my electricity bill so far, but obviously it's been over summer when usage...

    Audi Connect query

    You don't get calls/texts through the sim in the car, those options are only available through bluetooth, the sim in the car is only ever used for data. I'm not sure about having a default if you have multiple phones paired and both trying to connect at once, but you won't be able to switch...

    A3 E-tron mpg so far

    The boot space isn't really significantly reduced, most of the space cost is absorbed by not having a tyre well. beyond that it's negligible, you lose an inch or two floor to ceiling height, but it's yet to present anything I can't fit in that I could get in the 2014 A3 I had as a courtesy car...

    Post Pictures Of Your e-tron

    Yeah, and living at the edge of a building site isn't helping that at the moment, just gives me plenty of excuse to keep it clean though

    My e-tron is finally ready! - Trade-in conundrum

    Because it is, the age of a car is judged on it's plate date, not it's registration date, so a late 15 could be seen as being upto 6 months older than it is. I couldn't have waited until 65 without cancelling my order. I've just decided not to trade in and sell my own. I'm now in proud...

    My e-tron is finally ready! - Trade-in conundrum

    So after nearly 7 months of waiting my car is in the UK and making it's way to Preston Audi for me to pick up. When I initially ordered I had a trade in agreed for my 57 A4 of £2000, which at the time was pretty low for the age/mileage, but I was assured that if I sold it privately then it...

    Love This Video

    Great video, only disapointing that we won't get inductive charging just yet though!

    Audi A3 E-tron

    Mine has gone from 26 to 24, but they said there was still a chance of it coming further forward. I'd better get my a4 cleaned up and sold!

    Battery range

    Yeah, might be an advertising standards thing, it's expected rather than upto.

    Software issue potentially preventing car from starting

    A shame that can't be done remotely considering it can be online. My boss has a Tesla and has had an update/reboot while driving uninterrupted, which I was very impressed by.

    Audi A3 E-tron

    My expected delivery date was the end of March. Maybe my dealership were just a bit more proactive with it, I know they've had a couple of their orders cancelled, so they might have a bit more pressure they can apply to keep their remaining ones.
