    Driver Wing Mirror Stopped Moving

    Can you hear the motors turning when you try to adjust the mirror? If you can then it is probably either a failure of the mechanics inside the mirror assembly rather than electrical. If there is no motor sound then it may be either that the motor has failed or it is electrical. Next step...

    What’s the opinion on still buying a factory order A6 as a diesel engine option?

    Personally I think the diesel will become less desirable as time goes on, especially as local authorities seek to ban them from centres. That was my thinking when deciding to switch from diesel to petrol. All that said you also need to look at how you will use the car. If you are doing a high...

    What next?

    I should be picking up a new 40TFSi Avant in the next week or so (it arrived in the UK 10 days ago). Dealer called a couple of months ago and long story short I am changing cars for essentially no additional equity (having factored in the 3 months of no payments promotion plus the refund on the...

    Data issues

    Unless it changed with the switch to the MIB-3 platform (and the OP has a 2020 car so could be either MIB-2 or MIB-3) you can only hotspot a device to the car's wifi, which requires a data plan either purchased from Audi or from using a seperate SIM In the car. You cannot connect the car to a...

    Data issues

    If you only have a 2G connection then there will be little data being transfwerred from car to server. It is most likely a local issue, I think Cubic Teecom, who provide the connection, primarily use EE in the UK as their network provider. If EE is doing some work on the masts nearest to you...

    Audi UK Configurator vs EU

    Further to the lack of options offered by Audi, just noticed that only real option on the E-Class is the colour of the exterior and interior, otherewise there are no options. Also on the 5 Series, BMW makes you think there are lots of options available but in reality you can only get them in...

    Car Does not start sometime from first attempt

    Have had this occassionally. Have determined that the issue is that when starting the car you need to exert a good an=mount of pressure on the brake pedal

    Rear Pads time again

    Think Carista which is £24.99 on Amazon and gives you 1 month of all functionality in that price allows you to wind back the calipers and also reset the service indictor. To do that after the first month is either £9.99 for one month, £19.99 for 3 months of £46.99 for 12 months subscription...

    50 Tdi Sport service costs

    Then makes sense and at 3 years old it moves to Audi's Fixed Price which is fairly competitive with specialists

    50 Tdi Sport service costs

    Be aware that the Service Pack only makes sense if you are on the fixed schedule as it provides for an Oil Change and an Oil+Inspection service. If you are on the variable schedule it is normal to have both the oil and inspection services at the same time so you would still need to pay for the...

    Audi UK Configurator vs EU

    Part of it is down to WLTP rulings in that every configuration needs to be tested. I suspect that LHD and RHD cars also need to be tested seperately as well which may explain the different approch in Germany. Another major element comes down to marketing and logisitics. By covering all of...

    Lane Assist

    Maybe it is just me, but after 2 years I have just got into the habit of flicking the indicator if I need to pull out to pass a parked car or cyclists, so I hardly notie the lane assist anymore. On the odd occassion I get the vibration warning on the steering wheel or thr car tries to correct...

    40TFSi A6 Avant Ordered

    Had an email from Audi this morning saying the car is due to go into build on 6/4 so it seems I have longer to wait than I was previously advised :grumpy:. Here's hoping it gets moved up the queue as it is a sold car

    40TFSi A6 Avant Ordered

    I'm fully anticipating the drop in fuel consumption, but given that my mileage has plummeted in the last 12 months, just over 5k miles, and I do not anticipate that it will return to pre-covid levels soon if at all I should be OK. Low miles also mean that my car is for ever doing DPF regens...

    40TFSi A6 Avant Ordered

    Totally unexpectedly I have ordered a 40TFSi Avant to replace my 40TDi. The dealer approached me over the weekend with a deal, which when factored in with the 3 months of no payments on offer from Audi for cars ordered by end of April and the value of Car Tax refund I will get on part exchanging...

    Starter / Alternator recall

    Had my car done yesterday along with a service and all of the issues addressed. Car definitely feels more responsive when driving, not sure if they just reset the gearbox computer or updated the software. Also CarPlay no longer has the dead zone on the left hand side of the screen
