    Audi Connect now £££££

    I emailed them last week and they extended mine for a further year (had one already) without charge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lag - Delay - Hesitation

    No, but with OBDeleven I did a complete system dump before the service/updates and again afterwards - so I can see the version numbers in the relevant modules changed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wireless CarPlay

    I’ve got one of the Carlinkit U2W (also sold as carplay2air) adaptors for wireless CarPlay in my B9 S4 and it works well. I bought mine on AliExpress a few weeks ago and it was around £82 in total - a bargain. Everything works essentially as it did when wired - I think it’s very good, and...

    Lag - Delay - Hesitation

    I’ve recently had a gearbox (TCU I guess) update applied by Swindon Audi and its made a big difference to the previously laggy/delayed gearbox. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Petrol Ped YouTube Review of Diesel S4 Avant from long term petrol S4 Avant enthusiast

    Yes, if we ignore the dubious (if any) performance benefit of premium diesel then you’re correct. Most S4 petrol owners will use SUL as a minimum - I’d anticipate most S4 diesel owners just using regular diesel as there’s no performance benefit from premium - so with the S4 a more realistic...

    Audi Connect subscription renewal

    Looking back - I actually sent them messages at the end of October, even though it only expired yesterday - so they may have changed policy as from 1st Nov? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Audi Connect subscription renewal

    Mine expired a few days ago - but I just reached out to Audi UK via twitter, I then had a quick message back saying that they’d extend it if I DM’d them with my VIN - which I did. Was showing in the MMI as extended by a year a few days later. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Petrol Ped YouTube Review of Diesel S4 Avant from long term petrol S4 Avant enthusiast

    Well, you’ve stated it yourself - diesel 125 and SUL 127 - diesel is cheaper than unleaded (if you use Momentum / SUL as was mentioned). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Front tyre wear - 2.0TFSI quattro

    I’ve just replaced my S4’s original Hankooks at 22K and had exactly the same wear on the fronts. Passsnger side had a serious groove around the inside edge. Mine had event started to delaminate slightly at one point on the circumference. Had all four tyres changed for more Hankooks and had 4...

    New S4 Avant B9

    It’s not though is it... and that’s my main issue with a Tesla right now. My wife’s diesel Mitsubishi SUV would easily beat your Model 3 on a 400 mile journey. If I went to a meeting 250 miles away, unless my meeting is walking distance from a Supercharger (seriously doubtful) then I’m...

    This works fine from myAudi using my iPhone or my Apple Watch on my 2016 B9 S4. What makes you think it won’t work on pre 2018 cars? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    £500 for 1st service (plus extras) WTF?!

    I’ve just had my S4 B9 serviced for the first time (2yrs @ 15k miles) - and chose an Indie rattler than Audi. I supplied my own oil - Castrol Titan Pro LL IV - and the first service cost me £397 inc (though the oil was about another £70). But for that I got: - oil change - oil filter - air...
