    2017 S5 - Brake pads need replacing at 32k miles?

    My car was just in for it's 2nd oil service and I asked for the inspection service and pollen filter (years old now) to be carried out at the same time so I don't need to go back so often. I was very surprised that they advised that the rear brake pads were 70% worn and the disk's need...

    2017 A5/S5 Coupe - Roof Bars & Roof Box

    As title says, anyone with the above have any experience. I have had the roof bars since purchase but I haven't fitted them yet (will do this weekend). I believe the rear bar fixing is under the rear side window trim? I haven't been able to check whilst it's been light as its always dark when...

    2017 S5 Coupe- What Oil?

    Hi I don't have the manual handy and not near the car for a good few hours but wanted to get some oil on the way home as I didn't get any in the car when new. The MMI is showing just under half on the scale... figured a top up is needed. Car has 11.5k miles on the clock so burning a little...

    S5 Coupe Fuel Consumption falling :-(

    Hi I have nearly covered 5000 miles since the beginning of March and at first I was getting around 20-21 mpg on my typical commute of 30 miles with a mixture of dual carriageway and country roads ranging from 50mph to 30mph in parts. I know new cars take a little of time to settle down etc so...

    Hi All Sorry to post in here as I have an 2017 S5 Coupe. I know that there isn't many who have taken delivery yet and the seats are the same in the S4. I have noticed (don't know if it's meant to) but when I start the car the side bolsters move in to the level I programmed them to but the...

    2014 - S3 Brake replacement

    I have had a advisory from the dealer whilst in for a service 2 weeks ago that my Brakes are 75% worn. It was suggested that I would have about 2-3000 Miles left. Yesterday the warning light came on the dash! So I imagine the warning comes on a bit early. They quoted me £482 for front disks and...

    Michelin Pilot Super Sports

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has fitted them to their 2014 S3 8V with 18" Wheels? When I had a puncture last year I could only get hold of PS3 as the PSS were on back order but rumours on some forums suggest that they were being discontinued. I have phoned around and if I put the 225/40 R18...

    2014 S3 Aircon not cold

    I have had a search and found others that couldn't keep the auto/Aircon light on so the compressor wasn't working. Seems it might be a sensor or maybe they have damage to the radiator? I have checked visually the best I can and doesn't seem to be large stone/object impact. I have also ran a...

    Hi All On my S3 i have the clock set to auto and the time is correct. But I have noticed that since the clocks went forward in the spring this year, the BBC radio stations all seem to have the wrong times for the programs on the schedule screen on the MMI (non connect) but tech pack. For...

    Hi My car went in for it's first oil change service as it's at 15k miles now. I looked on the paperwork and they said they carried out checks etc and the oil change but nothing about updates etc. But the second I drove away from the dealer I felt the accelerator pedal was more responsive. I...

    DAB Changing to FM frequency not working?

    As the title says, notice that if I'm listening to local BBC radio station on dab it cuts out on part of my journey to work and it has the x through the symbol next to the station name. I can manually change to FM, or the FM traffic announcements come through (albeit really loud even though I...

    Why Don't Audi do this? VW DO!

    Was over on a Golf R forum earlier (seeing what tuning result they are getting) and found they get a tracker for their orders! Why don't Audi (being VAG) do this? Seems so stupid they don't. Track My Order : Volkswagen UK I don't think its liks bang up the minute but saves everyone calling...
