    New S3 or ??

    I’ve just got an M235i, I know it’s a marmite car but looks much better in the flesh and a much more engaging drive than my old S3 was.

    All new S3

    I was holding out for the S3 Vorsprung to replace my troublesome A6 as I loved the 2018 S3 that I replaced with the A6 last year. However I had a BMW M235i Grand Coupe delivered today as I got a good deal and only 2.9% finance. It’s an amazing car and initial impressions are it beats my old S3...

    Rejecting a car before 6 months - any advice

    I doubt it, time will tell and how much I like the BMW. I always avoided BMW as I never really liked the interiors but they seem to have come on a long way in the last few years. I still think Audi have the better interiors but the aesthetics are completely outweighed buy the poor build quality...

    Rejecting a car before 6 months - any advice

    OK so the car is with another dealer and they have knowledged “many” rattles coming from various areas of the dash/door cards and are currently fixing with tape and lube spray, highly technical fixes for a £45k car :(. However I’m so fed up with this car and Audi’s current direction on build...

    Rejecting a car before 6 months - any advice

    Thanks all..it’s booked in next week (lockdown dependant) I’m trying a different dealer to see if they can get to the bottom of it. The issue is worse in the colder weather every bump and uneven road surface causes creaking and rattles across multiple parts of the dash and passenger door card...

    Rejecting a car before 6 months - any advice

    Just an update the brake issue was resolved by the dealer with replacement pads. The dealer also had a go at fixing the dash rattles with some success but now the weather has got cooler they are back with vengeance, especially when cold in the morning. Has anyone had any dash rattles...

    A6 Avant 45 TFSI feedback request

    I came from a 2018 S3 to the A6 45 TFSI and can honestly say that it was not the step down in power I feared it would be. Yes it has to be in Dynamic and S mode to get near to the S3 which was pretty capable in any mode, but it’s pretty rapid none the less. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    The dealers have fixed some of my rattle issues but the intermittent ones that remain are classed as “acceptable” I’m learning to live with them as they are on and off but still think a £40k + car should have none I have a Feb 2020 build and have had once instance in 6 months of the random...

    A6 sound system

    I went from the B&O on my 2018 S3 to the Audi Sound system and was worried but I’ve been very happy with the standard one although it did take a while to bed in

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    The dealer has had a couple of goes, it’s better but still rattles at random times...I’ve put it down the poor design, cheap plastics touching more cheap plastics. My main gripe is the squealing brakes that can’t seem to be rectified. Safe to say I doubt this car is going to be in my possession...

    Rejecting a car before 6 months - any advice

    The embarrassment is the worst part, brand new 2020 40k car and brakes squeal like a £300 20 year old run about.

    Rejecting a car before 6 months - any advice

    Thanks all Sounds like a painful process but running out of ideas, there is only so many times I can give the car to them to investigate. They have probably had the car for 1 month of the 5 months I’ve owed it. I have sent an email to the dealership today let’s see what happens

    Rejecting a car before 6 months - any advice

    I have had my A6 brand new since March and had various issues with it, dash rattles etc.. some of which the dealer has resolved some are better but not gone. However the thing that is the biggest issue is the brake squeal. They have had two goes to fix it the most recent this week, almost...

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    Still waiting for the dealer to actually get back to me on what they are doing, I’m getting close to asking to reject the car. I did report both issues around 2 weeks after delivery via email as was during lock down and had them look at it twice since they opened up again. What do you think the...

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    One of my rattles is near the instrument binnacle so thought I would check mine and I’ve noticed it’s not even properly attached!! Not sure if this is since Audi replaced the MMI trim but this was the lower screen or been like it since day 1. I tried to push back but met resistance so did not...

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    The joy of rattle free driving has been short lived, I now think I’m being over sensitive but now there is a buzzing/rattle from behind the dials. The area above the glovebox buzzes in certain roads as does the passenger door card. I have had the car 4 months from new and already want to get...

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    Hi So far so good the lower MMI rattle does seem fixed. It developed a different rattle a day or two later but happy to say that only lasted a journey and stopped. I still have the odd squeak or rattle from various places but think I’m going to have to learn to live with them. It is a real...

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    I collect mine tomorrow after another attempt to resolve the rattle. They have now replaced the lower MMI screen let’s see if this resolves it.

    New A6 - Dash Rattles and Left Foot

    Here’s a video of the most annoying consistent rattle the others come and go depending on temperature, this was a good day as it was cooler so not as pronounced.
