    New Foglight Led's

    Have you activated the fog lights for cornering? On my fogs (replaced with white xenon filled bulbs) the benefit is marginal. Would the LEDs fogs make it better?

    Important Security Update...

    Agreed but when they are restricted by EU regulations this is what happens. It's why all the big manufacturers have the same issue.

    Dead Led on tail lights

    I have the same issue. Crazy that they're not lasting.

    Hi - no problem checking your car as long as it's not this week. I'm really tied up due to a foreign trip but should be ok after about the 3rd. //Scotty

    Are the wing mirrors the same as A4 and A5?

    Even the A4 has two different sizes of wing mirror. They changed with the MY2010 model I think. They became smaller and with less wind noise.

    2.0TFSI Problems :(

    Lynallbel, do you have a B8 A4? If you do then you may have noticed that firstly they don't have dip sticks and secondly to get and oil reading on the MMI you need to have warmed the engine and then let it stand for a couple of minutes.

    Sorry - just seen this and I don't recall responding to it. I've no problem plugging up and running a diag for you. I'm not expert at all and hence interpreting the output isn't my forte but I can certainly use my VCDS to let you know what's logged. //Scotty

    I'd say that was a B8 ;)

    Tints

    I've got factory tints and they're dark enough for me. Main reason for the post is to say that if you've got B&O then ensure the electrics are properly protected as I've seen posts in the US where the water used in applying the tint has fried their ICE :(

    Load fixing kit....

    I ordered it as a factory option but I saw a thread years ago where someone said it was an easy retro fit.

    Audi Assist and a puncture

    Years back I was out in my TT with friends in their TT. They ripped a sidewall (Hardnott Pass) and called out Audi Assist. They said they wouldn't come if he could change it himself. Also we was in the middle of nowhere and it was Sunday late afternoon and the space saver would only take us...

    Auto wipers issue

    The B6 A4's had a similar windscreen issue. When my S4 needed it's screen replaced I told them I wanted OEM Pilkington. The called the insurer, warned me it would take 24 hours and then it was done. I'd always go for OEM if poss.

    Advice needed please

    Call the servicing dealers to validate, check the MOT certificate and the servicing paper work etc. If it seems iffy then walk as there's loads of others out there.

    Auto wipers issue

    I don't have to reset mine for auto to work. Are you sure that you're just not thinking they're not working due to the initial activation speed? i.e. if my cars covered in dew then I may have to manually wipe if it's heavy so that I can see for the first few meters. If it's light then I'll...

    The A5 is wider, lower etc. I don't think it would work.

    A4 avant 3.0 tdi Quattro - owners thoughts please :)

    If I was spending that money then for the tiny increase then I'd be tempted to get the S4. If fact that's why I ruled it out. Since I do low mileage the fuel economy difference doesn't make much difference. Then I realised I don't need the performance of the S4 as it's mainly the wife's car...

    Telling Insurance Company about upgrades/mods

    Yes - you have to declare factory options so why not when you retrofit them. You must believe that it improves the look (or you wouldn't do it) and hence it will now be more attractive to thieves i.e. higher risk and hence it could affect your premium. Many people don't ... but then many...

    3G MMI Retrofit

    I think the price is around £3.5k .... or at least it was when the 3G first came out. It is a lot quicker and a lot smoother but it's not worth even £1k to do it.
