So since I rarely sit in the back of my own car I havent really noticed this until now, but is there supposed to be a LED strip around the speakers in the back seats like there is on the speakers in the doors on the front? It feels like there are strips there, but there's no light.
I am currently waiting for my Audi dealer to come back to me and give me some information on how to update my MMI firmware. I know it involves delivering the car to the dealer and have them install it, but I am not sure whether its gonna cost me and if so how much.
However, I just realized that...
Some good Android Auto stuff from the LA Auto Show here.
The current MMI in the A3 (8V) is capable of running Android Auto so Audi could more than likely issue a software update to bring Android Auto and Car Play to our A3's. However, I could also see Audi wanting to upgrade to a newer Nvidia...
I found details about the launch control in the manual and it turns out my car is indeed equipped with it. I gave it a try and wow... it was way too much fun, haha. Good thing I dont have many appropriate roads nearby to do it on or I'd wear out the car in no time. :)
I had a similar experience recently. I took it to a micropaint place and they got my car back to looking new and shiny. They straightened out dents too. I believe they do this by heating up the metal and reshaping it. I'm not completely sure.
At any rate, it wasnt too expensive and the result...
I've found a number of references to supposed launch control on A3s.
S-tronic diesels do have launch controls
Launch Control not working?
So I guess I just have to try it out for myself to see what happens. Would still be nice with some confirmation from the manual or someone...
The gear shifter should be in D/S I assume? Again, Ive read somewhere I cant recall, that the details around the launch control was described in the manual, and that its only valid for the quattro versions with S-tronic.
From searching around it seems like the A3's with stronic and quattro ("wet clutch"?) has launch control support. I couldnt find anything about this in my owners handbook, but Ive seen it mentioned that its in the manual somewhere. Does anyone have more information?
While it does work occasionally, the address parser isnt very good and fails to produce a valid destination more often than not, at least here in Norway. I guess Im formatting my contact addresses incorrectly according to Audi.
So ever since Android Auto was announced earlier this year and even demoed on an A3 I was immediately eager to figure out whether or not this will come as a software update or require us to buy new cars all together. Ive been an Android developer working on everything from kernels to apps since...
