    Bang & Olufsen Sound System - LEDs in the back?

    So since I rarely sit in the back of my own car I havent really noticed this until now, but is there supposed to be a LED strip around the speakers in the back seats like there is on the speakers in the doors on the front? It feels like there are strips there, but there's no light.

    MMI updates should be covered by warranty

    Good question, and I guess I should wait for my dealer to get back to me, but so far, the indications Ive received when Ive asked is that its not covered. Are you saying that it is though?

    MMI updates should be covered by warranty

    I am currently waiting for my Audi dealer to come back to me and give me some information on how to update my MMI firmware. I know it involves delivering the car to the dealer and have them install it, but I am not sure whether its gonna cost me and if so how much. However, I just realized that...

    Apple Car Play or Android Auto

    Some good Android Auto stuff from the LA Auto Show here. The current MMI in the A3 (8V) is capable of running Android Auto so Audi could more than likely issue a software update to bring Android Auto and Car Play to our A3's. However, I could also see Audi wanting to upgrade to a newer Nvidia...

    Android Auto for the A3

    The big question here is whether existing cars get it as well through a MMI update or if you need a brand new car/MMI unit.

    Launch control on A3 2.0 184 TDI Quattro

    I found details about the launch control in the manual and it turns out my car is indeed equipped with it. I gave it a try and wow... it was way too much fun, haha. Good thing I dont have many appropriate roads nearby to do it on or I'd wear out the car in no time. :)

    Any idea how they're going to fix this?!

    I had a similar experience recently. I took it to a micropaint place and they got my car back to looking new and shiny. They straightened out dents too. I believe they do this by heating up the metal and reshaping it. I'm not completely sure. At any rate, it wasnt too expensive and the result...

    This Youtube video also shows it apparently.

    Launch control on A3 2.0 184 TDI Quattro

    I've found a number of references to supposed launch control on A3s. S-tronic diesels do have launch controls Launch Control? Launch Control not working? So I guess I just have to try it out for myself to see what happens. Would still be nice with some confirmation from the manual or someone...

    Launch control on A3 2.0 184 TDI Quattro

    The gear shifter should be in D/S I assume? Again, Ive read somewhere I cant recall, that the details around the launch control was described in the manual, and that its only valid for the quattro versions with S-tronic.

    Launch control on A3 2.0 184 TDI Quattro

    From searching around it seems like the A3's with stronic and quattro ("wet clutch"?) has launch control support. I couldnt find anything about this in my owners handbook, but Ive seen it mentioned that its in the manual somewhere. Does anyone have more information? Cheers!

    Little surprises?

    While it does work occasionally, the address parser isnt very good and fails to produce a valid destination more often than not, at least here in Norway. I guess Im formatting my contact addresses incorrectly according to Audi.

    Android Auto for the A3

    Its totally possible to offer both CarPlay and Android Auto. Volvo is doing this with their new XC90.

    Android Auto for the A3

    So ever since Android Auto was announced earlier this year and even demoed on an A3 I was immediately eager to figure out whether or not this will come as a software update or require us to buy new cars all together. Ive been an Android developer working on everything from kernels to apps since...

    Retrofitting Matrix LEDs?

    Ah, ok. My bad! Thanks!

    Retrofitting Matrix LEDs?

    You can certainly get Matrix LEDs on the A3/S3. I just didnt spec it. a wide range of customers can reap the benefits – the LED headlights, for example, are available from the compact A3 car line upward

    Retrofitting Matrix LEDs?

    So I love my A3 and I am fairly happy with the options I opted in and out for. However, I slightly regret not going for the Matrix LED headlamps. Does anyone know if its possible to swap out the Xenon lamps for Matrix Leds? I assume this would involve replacing the front lights completely and...

    High Beam Assist

    Ive also had some issues with the high beam assist. What I think I've figured out is that if I manually activate the high beams, then push the lever back so that its in "auto" mode, it seems to work fairly well although I find it to be a bit too slow to come back on after Ive passed a car.

    Quattro

    Just so its said. "Quattro" is just a marketing term. "Quattro" in the A4 is not the same as "Quattro" in the A3. In the A3 you get a Haldex 5 unit which is identical to what is used in numerous other cars from various brands from Volvo to VW. Its just bugs me when people say that Quattro is so...
