    Facelift Mobile Phone Holder

    I use a generic spider mount, it is very stable when i mount it in the air vents, its too soft to scratch the car or the phone, it can fit any phone or tablet and it only cost me a $ from ebay. There are branded spider products but i tried first the cheap one and didnt have any issue

    Facelift A3 2.0 TDI DPF light on

    Exactly what was said above, i had that also a few days after i took delivery, it is caused by driving in traffic or doing frequent start/stops. You may also hear the cooling system working a lot even when you switch off the engine. Nothing a 15 min drive on an open highway with decent revs wont...

    Interior Facelift changes?

    I saw the review on carwow by Matt Watson and it seems that the rear folding seats have changed, they now fold 3 ways 40/20/40 if you have opted for the rear armrest, which is now completely different.

    Wow, pretty good news, when you get everything working ok you should start a dedicated thread, how much did it cost for the retrofit?

    How To: 8v Mods and Jobs

    Thanks, its like you said, when i failed to get the chirp, i found the horn option and when i enabled it worked ok, but its loud and annoying especially inside a garage. I will follow your latest advice, very helpful as always, thanks a lot.

    How To: 8v Mods and Jobs

    Nice sticky, oil temp and lap timer worked like a charm but i cant get Lock/UnlockChirpMod to work, i can see it in the MMI menu but setting it to on doesnt change a thing. I dont have the factory alarm but i read in the VCDS thread that it works even without it, can you confirm that?

    I know its is an old post but i made a recent attempt at it and the options for the coming/leaving home are different, i only get the following options: fog lights low beam and when i select low beam it accepts the change but i still get the fog with the xenon lights this time. Any ideas about...

    8V VCDS Mods

    Just an idea conserning MMI software. Has anyone found a VCDS mod to change the low battery notification when the bluetooth connected phone has under 40% battery remaining? I believe its too early, it would be better off ar 20%. Also when you are searching for contacts on the small DIS screen...

    Replacement Pedal Rubbers to Chrome caps

    I fitted it a month ago, you leave the old accelerator pedal as it is and start sliding the new one from the bottom moving upwards. You can widen the side plastics of the new one to rail over the old one. The accelerator pedal didnt give me any trouble at all, the footrest was the hard one to...

    DPF Error today

    I had the same warning at similar mileage, drove in a highway for 15mins with over 3k revs and never had the warning since then. Also the radiator works less often now when i turn off the engine, has to do with the engine settling down as mileage increases, no worries. www.homecareshop.gr

    Change to DIS?

    I can confirm having the clock displayed in a smaller font while having the speedometer as a main display, instead of the clock it can also display the date, or the short term average mpg/average speed and instant mpg. The car is early MY16.

    8V VCDS Mods

    One of the things i think should be tweaked in the A3 is the Drive Select feature. From personal experience and searching though the forum threads, i found out that the faster engine response in "dynamic" mode isnt retained after turning off the engine and back on again. Instead we should cycle...

    8V VCDS Mods

    Thanks a lot, you are the best. I tried changing fog light bulbs to whiter ones but had trouble removing the plastic grill, so not wanting to cause any damage i decided to disable the fog lights for ch/lh.

    8V VCDS Mods

    I have a mod in mind that i havent seen anywhere and was just wondering if it is possible. I use the coming/leaving home function where both the LED DRL and fog lights switch on for a while. Is it possible to disable the fog lights for that function? I dont like the yellow light output from the...

    Tech pack vs non tech pack

    I ordered mine with the standard MMI and as i wasnt impressed by the screen and the gps functionality i have ordered an android unit for the A3 that replaces the screen for a 7 inch 800x480 pixel, offers unlimited free options for navigation, wifi and 3g connection and also supports a rear...
