Has anyone recently replaced the rear shocks on their A3 as I am in a similar situation that the Sachs original part is no longer really available. The Audi part number is 5Q0 513 029 EC and the Sachs part is 315 913, but the Sachs website says the part is discontinued.
Audi quoted me £200...
Does anyone know how to remove the MMI wheel button? Its the advanced tech pack where you can write on the MMI wheel for address input?
I need to take apart all the buttons to clean some stickyness out. I got the hole unit disassembled apart from this one part which prevents the buttons being...

Check out reviews of the Michelin crossclimate tyres on youtube. not had them myself but thinking about it next time i need new tyres. Supposed to be a great tyre for the UK with our occasional snow as good all year round unlike summer only or winter only tyres
I find the OEM sat nav naf compared to google maps. Drove down to Cornwall last month and most of the way down it estimated it was going to take 12 hours to drive when google maps estimated 5 hrs! plenty of other times when the car NAV suggests a ridiculous diversion for "traffic" but if you...
It is something to think about - my mrs is getting a new car soon so will check out how it all works on that as I've not actually played with the features properly yet.
I already have the tech pack with the large screen - does it still need replacing?
I've heard that doing it wirelessly rinses your battery and you end up at your destination with a flat battery.
Wireless Android auto coming soon also but same story. And ive no idea why BMW dont want to offer Android Auto!!! just lost out selling a car to my mrs!
Thanks for the info - strange about the price increase.
I'd consider the MIB2 retrofit if it was around the £1500 point, but ive heard that it also requires the B&O amp replaced and totals up to £2500 for the lot!!!!
Had a search and cant see any duplicate threads on this. Wondering if anyone has tried out the third party retrofit of CarPlay/Android Auto from unique-ad.co.uk.
It seems to be a really good solution for adding CarPlay etc without the massive cost of the MIB2
Anyone tried it out?
I thought that the A3's had a timing chain that "never" needs replacing. or will do significantly more mileage and years before needing replacement. I just had my 63 plate 1.8TFSI serviced at Audi and they said there was no cam belt and that it was just a regular service.
I'd say I'm getting very similar mpg. Averaged 40mpg driving London to Cornwall the other week. Traveling to Wales with a roof box tomorrow so that will be interesting. Sad to say I'm a little disappointed with the mpg. My 8p 2.0fsi 150ps was about the same but was hoping the 8v would be better...
