    New plate choices

    Well, it would be boring if we all liked the same thing. I'll stick to boring standard width.

    Always standard size. Small looks weird.

    Nope, all smooth. In sport mode is aggressive on down shifts but nothing out of the ordinary. Why's that?

    C7 S tronic with Quattro issues

    I was coming home from work tonight in my 16 plate 272 A6 (7500 miles), was waiting at lights, went to take off (foot off brake) and got a amber 'gearbox malfunction ok to continue driving warning'. Drove home about 0.5 miles and rung Audi who told me to ring Audi Assistance who send an AA guy...

    Rear rings size

    I did. I went for the smaller ones (192x63) as the bigger ones where too big in my opinion.

    buying a6 c7

    Black editions have black window trim, black dashboard and door inlays, 13/14's should have rotor style wheels, flat bottom steering wheel, factory tints, black headlining and bose sound system. I am basing config of a '16 A6 BE so list may differ a little.

    Badge swap

    Nice! Glad you managed it without the grill removal. Sounds like you have done the same as me. I went gloss black rings/badges and removed all badges at back apart from quattro. Looks loads better. I would be interested in some pics once you have done your brakes.

    Badge swap

    I got mine off using a couple of trim removal tools. You need to be careful and pry out a little at a time. Once you have a gap behind the rings have something ready to wedge in it then move along to next tab. Be aware that the tab locations may be a little different on the black rings. On...

I used a plastic trim removal tool, wedged up the bottom of a ring, then inserted another flat removal tool into the to keep the rings separated from the grill and moved the first tool around, then the second tool behind it. I...

    Black badges

    Yep, I got them off ebay. The front ones was the right size, but the top left-most and right-most tabs where in the wrong position. I just cut the off with a dremel, clicked them in and they are sturdy. Rear ones were harder, the badge that came with the front one rings was a bit bigger than...

    SIM Card for Audi Connect

    Thanks for the replies and answers. I was going to go for a cheap 12 month contract, but may just get a PAYG and try that out.

    SIM Card for Audi Connect

    Ideally I want just a standard SIM, with data and to the ability to make/take calls as long as my phone is unpaired. When I pair my phone then all calls go through that and data through car SIM. Sounds like a normal SIM will work, as I originally thought.
