    Facelift Traffic Jam Assist Retrofit

    Unfortunately the time-out is still there. if you come to a complete stop, but from my memory it is more than 3 seconds (have to check...). I guess this is a safety matter (the same as touching your steering wheel after several seconds [without the bottle trick :frog:]) Don't forget to set the...

    Facelift Traffic Jam Assist Retrofit

    I have a facelift 2017 A3 E-Tron, also with ACC, lane assist, auto high beam, etc., but from factory without Traffic Jam Assist. A local (Dutch) VCP/VCDS specialist coded TJA and it works great. I use it every day in traffic jam (put a bottle of water in my steering wheel and I never have to...

    Facelift Lowering springs on facelift S3, new top mounts required?

    My local specialist (when he installed Eibach Pro springs) advised and installed SACHS topmounts, because they are 'better/longer lasting without creaking noises'. Normally only new bearings are 'advisable'. Mounts can be re-used if you don't want to spend the extra money. Mount + bearing...

    Coilovers, replace with new strut bearings or bearings+mounts?

    @Harvey Thanks for the info. Last month I bought Febi-Bilstein brake rotors, brake pads, filters, brake fluid etc for my other car, mk1 Audi TT. Feels and looks o.e.m. or even better because al the brake rotors are quality painted (the hubs and sides). Good to hear I can also use top bearings...

    Coilovers, replace with new strut bearings or bearings+mounts?

    I'm planning on buying coilovers for my A3 E-Tron. To save some money, I'm going to install them myself. Before fitting, I want to place new (o.e.m.) upper strut bearings on them. I want to do this because reusing the old ones is extra change of creaking noises (had this before when I...

    Facelift Activate Google Earth view without Audi connect

    I haven't 'enabled' the above settings yet. Remote climate control, lock status, etc still work. Indeed, those services work without subscription and I use the MyAudi app almost every day (pre-heating, pre-airconditioning, etc). Apple Carplay or Android auto in VC would be the ultimate...

    Facelift Activate Google Earth view without Audi connect

    My Audi Connect account expired (facelift A3 E-Tron 07-2017) and actually don't need the functions it offered. Only think I 'miss' is the Google sattelite view in my virtual cockpit (only because it looks so nice. In terms of navigation details, the standard colored rendering is better). Would...

    Actuator fuel flap won't open A3 E-Tron, how to replace?

    @RAF_S7 Thanks for the info. Would it be possible to remove the cover (so I can reuse it) without punching/damaging the 4 holes, like the guy in the youtube clip does?

    Actuator fuel flap won't open A3 E-Tron, how to replace?

    Who knows how to remove the 'fuel filler flap', without damaging it/punching 4 holes, to get to/replace the actuator?

    Actuator fuel flap won't open A3 E-Tron, how to replace?

    The fuel door/flap of my A3 E-Tron often does not open anymore. I think it's a slightly more 'special' system than with other Audi's (am I correct?): The system is automatically vented when the tank valve is closed. This is to 'preserve' the fuel. Because there are people who always drive...

    automatic boot opening

    @AlS3BE I read a lot on a German forum about this electric set. I read several complaints about not closing properly and because of this: wind noise while driving (because not closing like o.e.m.) Would be so nice to have the automatic boot (I have it on an A4 at work)...

    @1Rockape Thanks. I'm going to look on the mentioned TT forum. Someone over here did it on his A3?

    Change FEC code to get infinite map updates

    Hi guys, My '5 free map updates' and 3 year Connect services expired (07-2017 A3 E-Tron). I have 2019/2020 maps installed and want 2021 map, but not absurd for the price the dealer asks for it. I read that if you change the correct FEC code to a different value you are letting the system think...
