    A3 1.4 TFSI Wastegate actuator rattle

    On the engines that were affected yes, on ones that aren't, such as yours, it was not a necessary requirement to have the link modified. I had the 140ps version and that didn't rattle..

    A3 1.4 TFSI Wastegate actuator rattle

    You have the 150ps engine? This was not one of the versions that had a common issue with the rattle, as I understand it was only the 122ps 1.4's affected

    Stop/start,,,, battery voltage level controlled ?

    You are correct, everything is designed around the stop start systems, from the starter motor to the alternator to the engine oil. The engine is also stopped at a particular cycle of the pistons to ensure less wear and tear...

    Tyres and brake fluid.

    As has always if my memory serves me correctly. I do wonder why Audi do restrict their service plans to certain vehicles only, I have one for my current vehicle, at £16.36 per month. However this doesn't include the brake fluid change but does include the cost of the first MOT and any fluid top...

    Tyres and brake fluid.

    Most manufactures have changed the first brake fluid change regime to two years which, I assume is based upon recommendations from the fluid manufactures. As my 2016 A4 was purchased from new, and on service plan, the first change had no extra charge. My bmw has the same regime also...

    Screen options?

    You might need to fit a different mmi unit as I believe the electronics are different for the larger screen. Google search is your friend

    Audi a4 2.0tfsi oil leak

    On the 2.0 petrol the filter is located at the front off the engine to the right of the top of the timing chain cover, see pic. So would it have come from there?

    FYI: You can get heated windscreens for Skoda's and VW, it's only the technology that Ford have patented, which is the wires in the screen. The VGA group cars use a membrane..

    Engine cutting and coasting even with Stop/Start disabled?!

    With the configurable individual mode, that allows you to set different modes for the engine, gearbox, steering and suspension, if you've adaptive, is it possible just to place just the gearbox in sport mode and that disables start stop and coasting?

    Engine cutting and coasting even with Stop/Start disabled?!

    Maybe that's what I was seeing, as I've no longer got the A4 I can't test it..

    Engine cutting and coasting even with Stop/Start disabled?!

    My 2017 A4 was also a mild hybrid and turned off the engine when coasting. You can also instigate coasting with a gear paddle. Not sure but I don't think it was part of the start stop system but I am sure both are off in sports mode...

    What petrol/diesel type (brand) and RON do you normally put in your A3s?

    Funnily enough E10 fuel came in around the same time the days were getting shorter and the temperatures cooler. So it remains to be seen whether there is much of a mpg penalty. Can't say there's been much of a difference with our 1.0 fiesta and it is still averaging 38.8 urban...
