    Audi Dealer Complaint - Long but worth the read (I think)

    Just as a rider to the above since buying my car new off an Audi dealership in England a couple of years ago and leaving my car in for warranty work related to the car's roof I was informed by staff in the Belfast dealership that they have always gone out of their way to check whether cars NOT...

    2.0 TFSI oil burn...

    Last year Audi updated the software, crankcase seal etc because my 2010 car was using excessive amounts of oil. This initially appeared to slow consumption to something like 1 litre per 1900 miles. Since then consumption has become progressively worse with the car, checked yesterday, using 1...

    As a rider to the above the chap that rang me up said that he had recognised my name and he suggested that he was giving me a heads up that my car had been tagged.

    Warranty Issues when modifying the ECU

    Then your car probably won't be tested. It looks like the dealership or one of its mechanics is just being ****** minded because you saved a load of money buying your car elsewhere.

    Oil Level dropping in 2.0 TFSI HELP!!

    The car just completed its initial oil test and was judged to be using 0.87 of a litre in 600 miles! I understand that replacement of the crankshaft seal and a crankshaft pressure release valve is now to be undertaken together with software updates and if this reduces the oil usage to half a...

    Oil Level dropping in 2.0 TFSI HELP!!

    magnetic ride

    Apparently not! They are both electronic but work on different principles. Nevertheless, glad to read that you are happy with the damping control, I have also ordered it so I hope you are right! Many thanks TheMac

    magnetic ride

    Apparently you can't get magnetic ride on the cabriolet. I have ordered electronic damping control - is that what you are refering to?

    magnetic ride

    Hi Has anyone got or tried Audi's magnetic dampers? Have you found any significant improvement in road holding? I am presently ordering a new Audi A5 cabriolet. Many thanks in anticipation. TheMac
