    Electronic Handbrake

    Can this be coded to engage more gradually? I hate the fact that if the car is moving even slightly the abrupt engagement causes a real jerk...maybe I'm driving like a jerk?

    2020 A4 cost cutting

    The thing I find slightly galling are all the useful things you get as standard on many Skodas that either aren't available or are extras on an Audi.

    Missing back seat storage solution?

    Amazon has loads of Back Seat Storage solutions, not all of them are ideal but to me they'd all be better than drilling holes in my seats.

    A/C not turning on

    What temperatures do you have locally. I believe the AC will not operate if really cold.

    Audi A4 1.4 TFSI (MPG, Reviews, Performance)

    I've been in a 1.4tfsi Sport A4 since March. I find it very pleasant indeed, it's quick enough, very quiet engine and wind noise, but because of this you do tend to focus on the road noise which is not as well suppressed. I put this down to British road surfaces as a drive to Barcelona via the...

    Anyone has 35% tints done?

    30% for front sides is correct. You need to be able to see the drivers face and make eye contact. This is also so the Police can see who's driving, for instance, if it's a man driving and the insurance comes back to a woman then they ask questions.

    Farewell A4 and Audi

    I hate the system that dictates that to have something you want, you need to order other stuff you may not need. In this day of computer controlled just in time delivery to production lines there should be no reason at all why you could not have your car built to exactly the spec you want at no...

    No-one buys A4's in scuba blue?

    My windows have a very slight factory tint, I wouldn't want privacy glass or any sort of aftermarket tint. When I bought, the blue was rare and stood out in a sea of grey, black and white. I think that when clean and polished it's still my favourite colour - it has a sparkle in the paint. What...

    Swapping a monochrome DIS for a color one

    Given the work involved and the possible complications, would it not be easier to just sell your car and buy one with the colour display that you want fitted as standard?

    2019 Maps...

    My A4 is the first car I've had with a built in satnav, funnily enough though I usually find myself using Waze via Android Auto it seem "cleverer" at dealing with live traffic.

    Anyone else struggle with sline seats?

    Respectfully, why didn't you know. Did you not test drive the car before purchase?

    Anyone else struggle with sline seats?

    If I put it as low as I would like, my left knee hits the Cruise Control stalk.

    It’s finally going!

    The problem with googling "issues" is that you only get negatives. Very few people go onto forums and such sites to report a gearbox just working properly as they'd expect. They only mention them when something goes wrong, therefore the overwhelming impression is that they're all rubbish.

    Door Trim Removal

    Have you tried an adhesive puller? they can work very well on the sort of dent that would just pop out as you describe. In some cases simply pouring a kettle of boiling water on the dent can make it pop out due to expansion helped along by a suction cup. There are videos on youtube...

    Audi A4 Avant TFSI 1.4 2017 Sport fuel economy!

    I've had my 1.4 tfsi with a Manual gearbox for 6 weeks and 1500+ miles now. My journeys tend to be short, 2 to 5 miles during the week in urban areas with mostly 20 limits. Then each weekend I do long trips usually around the M25 or along the A13. My long term average is 51.4mpg. Yesterday, I...

    Turning car off completely

    Apologies if this is a really stupid question. I'm driving to Spain in a couple of months and will be dozing in the car for a few hours on the way. All my previous vehicles have had a normal ignition key, so when I stopped to sleep and turned it off it was fully off. With my A4, the car always...

    I wouldn't stress about it, most postcodes only include about 15 properties, so you'll be within spitting distance of where you want to go
