    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    I'm going to test this on mine, it's a 2019 so I already have the "alternate" maps. But I'm intrigued for when my Audi Connect expires. However - does this affect the remote location, locking and status?

    Facelift Brake fluid change

    I got a call from my stealer today letting me know that my car at 2 years old is due a brake fluid change. First of all I thought the first one was 3 years, they said this changed but can somebody confirm it. Second of all they're asking £109 for it, presume that is ludicrous? Any issues me...

    B9 S4 aluminium interior trim scratches - replace or wrap?

    Has anyone wrapped the "textured" aluminium on a standard A4 sport? Do these wrap OK or does the texture show through too much? Going to leave mine at least another year or two, but will likely do it at some point.

    Anyone running a saloon with a baby?

    @Sibmets I meant on the back of the headrest themselves, there's what looks like a plastic box. Although quick search looks like you might have the headrests that can adjust forward and back, so guessing it's to do with that?

    Anyone running a saloon with a baby?

    I've got a B9 Avant, got a 3 year old who uses the front seat ISOFix (main reason for getting the A4 to be honest) and a now 6 month old in the back, there's plenty of room even though I'm 6ft 5. Storage is good and I've got a roofbox for the odd times we do need some more, but that's really...

    Genuine Audi DataPlug 81A051629 For Audi Connect Services £36.00

    I've checked the app (not got a dongle) and definitely not Android Auto compatible.

    Wireless CarPlay

    Appreciate everybody trying to get this running natively, but there's a product coming out which will allow you to retrofit Android Auto Wireless into your car; here Yes it's indiegogo, but the units are starting to be shipped and the guy who's made this also made a software version which I've...

    Roof bars for Audi A4 Avant

    Personally - if you're going to keep them on or use them a lot then get Thule. If they're for temporary/irregular use then much cheaper Cruz ones can be got here;

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    Already have and they won't extend it anymore. Somebody even e-mailed them a few days before they started charging and got a reply saying "buy it here" I believe it's about £50/year for remote locking/diagnostics and about £200 for everything else on top. I'll probably go for the first bit only.

    Google earth not loading

    Even more strange is that it used Here maps until about 9 months ago.

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    I've got a MY19 and still seem to have the Google maps satellite overlay, seem a bit confusing if I'm expecting to lose it or not now

    Audi Connect now £££££

    Long codes all of them using OBDEleven - except the traffic sign recognition which is easiest done with this;

    Audi Connect now £££££

    With the sound system guessing it'll be a way of enabling additional speakers and a sub. You can already pay Audi to enable traffic sign recognition on your vehicle, £700 if I remember correctly. But there's third party ways of doing it for under £200. It's amazing how much I've been able to...

    Audi Connect now £££££

    Just over £20/month for that service is absolutely insane. When mine comes to renewing I might grudgingly pay £50 for the remote services, as I do use them, but the everything else I just use Android Auto anyway. Wonder if they make more money off this stuff than selling cars, as it does put me...

    Retrofit Rear View Camera to Audi A4 2017 B9

    Thanks @DJAlix - that's exactly what I did and it's been working perfectly. Just at the time was confused as couldn't find a single other person with the same thing. Also shoving the wires without pins into the 12 and 30 holes on the plug works, but probably not advised!

    B9 heated wing mirror not heating

    @Spearo if you're really worried about getting the mirror off, then you can get some strong glass suckers to do it, that's the "official" way of achieving it.

    Retrofit Rear View Camera to Audi A4 2017 B9

    Not sure about the front camera. I've got a petrol (no Adblue), Xenon lights but I do have a front camera. I had nothing at all plugged into the extended CAN. Wired the reversing camera into them and works perfect, but nothing previously existed in them pins.

    Avant Roof bars

    I've got a hand-me-down Exodus roof box (Halfords own brand I believe) I'd say a standard size roof box and it easily fit a normal size (larger than cabin) suitcase as well as a pushchair and quite a bit more.

    Avant Roof bars

    I also used and ordered the cheaper Cruz ones. They're a bit fiddlier to get on and off and not as nicely finished, but do the job and I'll only have them on once or twice a year.

    Calling all Audi A4 Avant owners with kids

    One thing to be aware of the S-Line is that it's a firmer suspension, so not quite as smooth for little ones. The storage pack can't be easily/sensibly retrofitted as mad as that sounds. 2 litre is good if you're considering a roof box and a full car, just for that extra power.
