    Covid 19 and car sitting idle

    Nice one ST200 , thanks. I usually have mine connected to my 51 year old mgb gt. Interesting that you had it connected with the car locked . That has given me confidence to use it on mine and our VW Up runaround.

    Covid 19 and car sitting idle

    Thks for fast replies. Cant justify using it Wolf in current climate Alan , i did wonder about that. I do have a Accumate battery conditioner I use for my classic car. I wasn't sure how safe it is to use on modern car with all the electronics .

    Covid 19 and car sitting idle

    I know small issue in the current crisis. I cannot justify using my S3 as local supermarket is 7 mins walk away. I have been thinking of starting it every couple of weeks and sitting at fast idle till oil is up to temp. What do you all think ?

    Haldex pump filter

    And Audi do not clean the filter! What is the point of a filter left dirty. Very odd.

    Dealer issue - Haldex / rear differential

    I am sorry to here that. Leaves a bad taste with Audi Was your indie friend a Audi approved independent? If he is there may be still some recourse.

    Dealer issue - Haldex / rear differential

    Maybe worth investing in a Dekra survey and inform both Audi and the indie that is what you are doing. Think also worth involving the indie . They may be insured against this type of issue. If fault cannot be proven there should be a compromise between all parties.

    1.5 TFSI Engine Software Update

    I understood they did have the 1 4 in the US but maybe not in Audi , it could be VW as I think I got it from the VW forum.

    1.5 TFSI Engine Software Update

    With the problem coming up to 2 years old , I personally do not think there is a real fix. They are messing around with software to mask the problem . Do not be surprised to see this engine disappear and be replaced with something different. Remember they have not launched it in the US for fear...

    S3 Twitchy at high speed

    I guess it is part of the pcp culture. The original owner doesn't care, and the second owner is out of warranty. I really like my S3 , it is now 4 years old and 25 k miles . Have a 5 year warranty, but as low mileage and now have a great indy to look after it , thinking of waiting till new A3...

    1.5 TFSI Engine Software Update

    Ok I see there is a 2.0 miller cycle ea888 engine. So your question is a good one. Maybe the extra power , different turbo . Clearly 18 months and not resolved there has to be a reason. Software fix seems like a band aid.

    1.5 TFSI Engine Software Update

    Is the A4 the 1.5 ? Apparently the dsg still has it , but masks the the symptoms. As far as I see on the forums they are not fixing the problem. There are currently 10 fixes and apparently dependant on engine/ chasis number. That seems to indicate they have been trying different solutions at...
