    Scratches on side window (factory tint)

    'Privacy glass' is specially made, a dark pigment is added to the blend during the manufacturing process to achieve a given level of VLT. It's an electronic process called 'deep dipping' and as such cannot be removed. It sounds like the glass itself has been scratched.

    Machine polish

    Price seems quite high, especially given the workmanship. I'd push for some of that back and take it elsewhere personally as they don't sound overly experienced in detailing.

    MMI update revision notes

    I wouldn't messing with updating and flashing things myself, my op was one more of curiosity. I'm luckily in that I don't (presently) have any software problems and my car's from early '14! I'm sure I'd have noticed something by now.

    Scruffy xenon headlights

    I'm sure you already know but, 3M do a good kit for headlight restoration which needs to be coupled with a good sealer, although this kit won't work with glass and the process is slightly different working with glass as a whole your headlights will almost certainly be plastic. They'll need a...

    MMI update revision notes

    I do get that and understand the reluctance to be proactive and periodically update software (and recognize the inherent risk that any update brings). I don't argue the attitude of 'if it's not broke don't fit it' is wrong, I'm just saying, from an end users perspective and perceived experience...

    MMI update revision notes

    Answers my question :icon thumright: The AA and CP comment was more aimed toward PFL 8v's. It didn't become an option until FL right? They just seem slow to adopt and implement new mainstream tech

    MMI update revision notes

    That's nuts. I do feel Audi is behind the times with their software, I don't understand why in this day and age software updates aren't compulsory as if an update been released it's to address a problem or improve upon the performance of a system, why that wouldn't be mandated as part of the...

    MMI update revision notes

    I've never seen anything like this but would anyone happen to know if there's a list of mmi revisions out there in the wild somewhere that includes a list of any feature additions/bugfixes? Just interested to know whether there's an ultimate refined recommended revision everyone should be...

    Auto wipers (rain sensitive) not working

    Yes, it has (at some point) been replaced. In honestly, it's not a massive problem (as I can just use intermittent for now) so I'm not placing any particular urgency behind fixing it, I was just throwing it out there to see whether anyone had seen this before. It's in for a major service within...

    Auto wipers (rain sensitive) not working

    I'm unsure whether the gel pack was changed with the windscreen (as it was replaced before I owned the car and I haven't seen any paperwork) although from the exterior, the gel pack itself does look okay, there are no air bubbles and I can see the sensors. Even if there was a problem with the...

    Auto wipers (rain sensitive) not working

    Is there anyway to test the sensor is working as it should be (without replacing the whole unit and gel pack). I suppose I could attack it with a multimeter

    Auto wipers (rain sensitive) not working

    I'm struggling to find any information or similar experiences to this anywhere. I have a pfl S3 8V Sportback, since having it the rain sensitive auto wipers haven't worked, I can disable the 'rain sensitive' function from within the mmi which swaps them over to basic intermittent (which works...
