    Lane assist

    Well, my point was: you need to indicate all the time.

    Lane assist

    I love Lane Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control in my car. Paired with the S-tronic gearbox, the car drives itself most of the time. I never turn off lane assist, and rarely have issues. Of course you have to use indicators when lane assist is on, else how do you expect the car to know what you...

    normal suspension - 17 inch wheels or sports suspension

    Once you start asking yourself whether you should go for normal suspensions or sports ones, there is no coming back: you will always regret having chosen the sport suspensions down the line. I have had 4 Audi A3s so far: One S Line (with S Line suspension) - Harsh ride Two Sport (with Sport...

    Increasing lane assist steering wheel time out

    Hi, I have a FL A3, with ACC and lane assist. I get warning about not holding the steering wheel (or make movements) quite early, so is there a way to make it longer? Also, when the car stops, auto start is disabled very quickly (like 2 seconds). Someone on another thread said that some...

    1.5 tfsi real world mpg

    I have checked and my average so far is 43mpg over 6,000 miles. My 2.0 Tdi did 53mpg over 45,000 miles. Usage is about the same, maybe half motorways and half town.

    S-LINE Springs questions

    I have a FL S-line, and selected "dynamic" standard suspensions. Yes, it makes the car looks less sporty (larger gap above the wheels), particularly if you look for it, but I have had sport and s-line suspensions in the past, and neither were comfortable. I am glad I have gone for...

    1.5 tfsi real world mpg

    I don't think I am getting 50 mpg on motorways, at 70 miles per hour, even when driving very gently. Also, the CoD indicator (well buried/hidden in the various display options, probably on purpose) doesn't come up very often. It's basically when the car is cruising and not accelerating...

    Bonnet Open

    I had the same issue on my new car (received in December) and it had to go to Audi twice to get the issue sorted. They initially sorted the left catch, and then had to sort the right one when the fault came back after opening the bonnet once. They didn't replace any parts, but just made some...

    Keep your Dash cam footage guys!

    I agree. However, I suspect most of the bad drivers on the road don't have the intellectual properties to understand the impact of their actions...until they have an accident and injure themselves and someone else. Very few people seem to understand safety distance. If I leave my car on...

    Facelift 2018 1.5 TFSI Sportback Black Edition Demo?

    I don't think £22k + 20% VAT equals to £28K

    Keep your Dash cam footage guys!

    I love this: the ability to report dashcam footage to the Police for dangerous driving. On my 35 mile commute to work, I see dangerous drivers almost every day. They overtake from the right, don't understand safety distance and follow my car 2 meters away at 70mph etc. To be honest, I don't...

    Facelift 1.4 TFSI cylinder on demand 150 PS 6-speed?

    I have had the 1.5 CoD engine for 2 months, after driving the 2.0 TDI for about 12 years. I really like the new engine, and also significantly quieter and more refine than the TDI.

    Audi UK: if you are reading this...

    So currently, Audi UK are forcing buyers to get the technology pack before they can get the virtual cockpit. Technology pack is: MMI with touch, 36 month subscription of Audi Connect, wireless charging in phone box. I am sorry, but I am pretty sure none of this is a prerequiste for having...

    Facelift Audi Sound System Sub settings?

    I used to have a sub setting in my previous car, but setting has gone in new car, delivered in December. Both had/have the Audi Sound System. I think the quality of the bass has gone down in the new one. Maybe Audi has created more of a difference between the Audi Sound System upgrade, and Bose...

    Bonnet unlocked warning

    I had a better look this morning, and there are three closing mechanisms for the bonnet: the middle one (to prevent the bonnet opening in one go) which doesn't seem to have a switch/sensor, and one on each side, which have switches. When closing the side ones manually (pressing them), I can...

    Audi UK: if you are reading this...

    Lots of commercial decisions made by Audi UK marketing are basically poor, particularly for company car drivers (and I can only assume that many Audis are company cars). 1) Depreciation Usually, depreciation of optional equipment is considered to be 100% over 3/4 years. Therefore, it would be...

    Facelift FL B&O

    I think their also force you to take that pack to be able to select virtual cockpit. Audi UK marketing people are just stupid: I didn't want any of those options, but would have been happy to pay £400 for virtual cockpit.

    Bonnet unlocked warning

    Are the switches the black push buttons or other switches right next to the catch? I can't really see any switches around the catch... Thanks!

    Bonnet unlocked warning

    Hi, My three week old new A3 has developed a fault: I opened the bonnet once to top up windscreen fluid, closed it, and now I keep getting an annoying "bonnet unlocked" warning on the computer display. I can't see any sensors inside the bonnet, apart from two push buttons on each sides, on...
