    A5 Broken into - repair leather seats

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, really appreciate it. The shoe cream has worked a treat and tidied it up nicely. Only issues I have now is that the window was not replaced with an official Audi one, so it doesn't have the Audi logo in the bottom right corner to match the others :grumpy:

    A5 Broken into - repair leather seats

    Hi all, unfortunately a couple of nights ago my car was broken into. Drivers window was smashed and glass was everywhere. I have the window replaced. Annoying as the new window is third party so doesn’t have the audi logo to match the rest of the windows also, glass was all over the seat...

    Re-Mapping... Worth it?

    Wow, thats quite a saving. What sort of cost would that be? for a stage 1 or economy map?

    Re-Mapping... Worth it?

    Hi all, I have had my Audi A5 Black Edition for around 7 months now and I love it. But I have realised there aren't many places to use the full power of the engine due to the speed limits etc. As I do a lot of M1 motorway driving, I was thinking about getting a re-map to help the fuel economy...

    Multi-Function Steering Wheel - Change Song

    That’s how I do it at the moment, I use the volume wheel that’s in the centre console, I have the volume adjustment on the right side of the wheel. I’ll take a photo after work Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Multi-Function Steering Wheel - Change Song

    Hi all, sorry to if this has been posted before. I’ve got an Audi A5 with a multifunctional steering while. I also have the complete Audi MMI. When connected to Bluetooth I can see the tracks on the screen and the screen behind the wheel, but I can’t use the up and down rocker on the left...

    Haha yeah I guess you have an eye for detail! I have a bush next to my drive way so can see it getting dusty already! Guess I'll have to get the pressure washer out every week Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    I'm now part of the Audi A5 crew

    Just thought I'd post photos of my new Black Edition A5 which I picked up last week. Already looking at potential upgrades, but want to try and keep as close to stock as possible. Was maybe thinking of painting the calipers red? Any advise on which colour would look best? Sent from my Pixel...

    VW Emission Scandal - Are we going to get Compensation

    A month after having the update done, my engine management light came on flashing and the diagnostic test said it was errors with the EGR valve which apparently is linked to helping the emissions for the car. Weather it's coincidental or directly linked to the software update I'm not too sure...

    Problem After Audi Emissions Recall

    I have an Audi A3 Sportback 2.0ltr TDi 2012 plate. I do some short journeys but also do 2 x 60 mile round trips each week. I have been doing these journeys for a year with no issues, but as soon as the update has happened I have had the issues. Will, that sounds like a right run around. I...

    Problem After Audi Emissions Recall

    Yep, so did I! My work is literally 2 miles down the road from my house which I drive everyday, so the car doesn't even have a chance to warm up! That probably doesn't help. Iv'e contacted Audi to see if they have had any other cases like this, hopefully they may do a free courtesy check or...

    Problem After Audi Emissions Recall

    Sounds like you have had a lot done in only 45k! The mechanic I know said the EGR problem is common in diesels but still a bit odd only a month after the update, but as mentioned it could just be coincidental! I just did a 60 mile round trip and she drove like normal, no flashing lights or...

    Problem After Audi Emissions Recall

    The previous owner was a company as it was a company car, so doubt it would be that. Just bet it wouldn't have come up if I didn't have the software update done. Car has been OK today. I have cancelled my appointment tomorrow at Audi so I don't have to shed out £65 for the diagnostics, when I...

    Problem After Audi Emissions Recall

    I don't know why I did now, I guess at the time I thought if I resell it, it would be better if it had been done. I've got it booked in at Audi tomorrow, think I should accuse the software update to be the fault?

    Problem After Audi Emissions Recall

    Hi all, Just got a quick question, I may be heading in the completely wrong direction with this... My car was with Audi about a month ago getting the software update to comply with emission laws etc. the car has seemed fine since and haven't really noticed any difference in performance or MPG...
