    Nav Update

    Interesting- my question too as I’m doing the same to my wife’s car. The instructions I’ve been given recommend the removal of the old map and partition, but the site I bought them off says I don’t have to and can update without, so would want to know the answers too. My current thought is to...

    3G+ hidden green menu

    Can someone confirm that you need vcds to enable this menu on the A1? Apparently can activate this on an A4 with Carista, but A1s software doesn’t give that option? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Gearbox in sport mode/7th

    For those of you with a facelift S3, do you find that when accelerating whilst the gearbox does hold the gear longer it doesn’t bounce off the limiter? I.e it will change up around 5k revs? I was just driving my wife’s A1 the other day in sport mode and noted that the way her car acted in...

    B9 RS4 vs The Rest...and the S

    OK, slightly random question here. I'm not in the fortunate number on here who own an RS4 or S4 (planning an S4 for the eventual upgrade when they start coming to the used market at a reasonable price in a year or so), but had an odd thought on the way home. I had a recent encounter with a...

    Time to say goodbye...

    Snap.. I've recently done the same thing, moving from an A3 184ps (tuned to 240ps) to a golf r estate. In terms of performance, its a total animal when you want it to be, but can be civilised when you wish - my first "performance estate". If I'm honest I would have liked to go to the new...

    S4 avant v Golf R estate - review

    I’ve had my Golf R estate now for a few months and I would echo chief badgers view that it is devastatingly competent. Fuel can be a pig in stop start traffic (but then we don’t buy them for fuel economy!, although I have had almost 40mpg on a run). My main gripe if I’m honest is the ride, my...

    TDI-Tuning box

    Moving to a Golf R estate... box was definitely an improvement, felt seriously slow and unresponsive without it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    TDI-Tuning box

    Ditto to the above. mine box is now for sale as I change my car tomorrow. This is for the 184ps engine so may not be the right one for your car.

    S4 avant v Golf R estate - review

    well didn't quite manage to get what I wanted for my car, but managed to get £250 extra off the golf... so partial result.. still he's throwing in complete detail and valet by a known detailing firm (south-west detailing), new brake pads/discs/tyres and service. It still has just over a years...

    S4 avant v Golf R estate - review

    Well, after giving things some serious though and discussing at length with mrs smk82, decided not to go for the s4 at the moment; needs must for spending more sorting out the. New house[emoji6].. the golf however is still in play, found a decent 18month old one with pretty much all the toys I...

    Is your next car going to be Audi?

    One problem with that.. it's a BMW! Joking aside, I find the ride very bad and don't particularly like the interior[emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
