    Audi a3 2014 wheels

    Did they do a black pack/black edition on the sport trim? Not sure iv seen that before. Thought it was a higher up model like S-Line?This could even be an SE spec car. Weird to have got the wheels refurbished black along with replacing all chrome trim. I would be wary on this one, plenty of...

    Wireless CarPlay

    sounds like your box is the issue. Maybe it’s the Wi-fi/bt can’t handle that volume of data being transferred with all apps running. Or it could be it’s trying to draw too much power from the USB port. I used to get that quite often with my phone plugged in. MMI error saying something about usb...

    Wireless CarPlay

    My iPhone 12 Pro charges fine when on the wireless matt in my Q2. It’s pretty quick to charge but not tested exactly how quick as i have better things to do!!:tearsofjoy: But its fine anyway, I just dont overload it with apps as it crashes. Not sure if thats the car play box or not though but if...

    Wireless CarPlay

    Yeah something is strange is going in with your charger. I would go with comments above that it’s not working correctly. At the very least your phone should get a bit hotter! Mine charges quite quickly on the wireless matt.

    Wireless CarPlay

    Yes! I think it’s because it thinks it’s the phone that is connected as it’s usually a car play “phone” that toggles the warning. In MMI settings somewhere there is a feature to turn off this warning. Maybe in the main settings, not car section.

    Wireless CarPlay

    When you use the wireless charging with GPS and music then is it on Wireless car play too? Mine wont take it! Completly freezes, my iPhone X also did the same. It’s Gmaps that kills it, its fine with music and wireless charging but as soon as i open those with Gmaps then it freezes. My wireless...

    Wireless CarPlay

    Nice review mate. I had similar results with one i bought from Audi Retrofits. Tiny little box, i glued mine with a couple of 3mm strips to the side of my box under the armrest side as i didnt want it on display. I also have a wireless charging box so didn’t want to leave it there taking up the...

    Audi Connect subscription

    Very true. That part escaped me! You will need a Audi Connect subscription even if you put your own sim in as you will need to access the data to download it. So really, no point in putting in a sim. If you dont use the satélite images then i really dont think it’s worth it. I went a day without...

    Audi Connect subscription

    Is 12gb a year enough? You will be downloading all the satélite imagery every where you go, all the traffic, all other data that is included normally. Not sure 1gb a month is enough but might be wrong? I paid 225chf here in Switzerland for 2years Audi Connect, worth it just for the satélite...

    Has anyone used Audi Retrofits

    Always liked the look of Audi Retrofits and their Instagram is a good account to watch and check out. However, I have had a few quotes quote from them and Djalix and the latter has always been cheaper. I have yet to use either of the services so can’t vouch for either of them in that sense but...

    GUTTED! :'( Just Crashed My S3 in the Snow

    Define accident! Over there (Switzerland), and the reason why i posted my post earlier in the thread, an accident nearly never exists. There is always a reason, always blame and a cause. Call it harsh, but its actually true. It’s a little along the lines of when in football someone misses and we...

    Why!!

    I don't think its about the cars, I think its about educating people and making them aware of conditions. People think tires are tires, just rubber and compounds don't exist. My 72yr old dad who has had millions of cars and works on them himself thinks this still even after me rambling on at...

    Haldex awd

    I don't have drive select, just the S or D modes on the S-tronic geabox. I find that D is better in snow as the S mode is too power instant. I can regulate the power a bit more in D mode. The S mode just plants the power and results in wheelspin a lot of the times.

    bye bye google satellite overlay

    No chance will the satélite image work after Audi connect expires. They load to the car and then i think the cache is wiped each time the car is switched. My satélite image loads each time the car is switched on, if it was stored on the cars hard drive then it wouldn’t do this. Would love to be...

    How long can you use dash cam while parked in winter?

    I also think it depends on how much you drive the car? When i take my Q2 on longer trips then I easily get 24hrs + of standby parking mode, but if i do my work commute during the week which is 5kms then it rarely does a few hrs.

    GUTTED! :'( Just Crashed My S3 in the Snow

    Good luck and glad your ok. No advice but just to say you should get winter tyres. Over here in Switzerland you would be looking at a massive fine, probs 5 to 10k, plus point on your licence and damages to the person who owns the wall. You weren’t driving to the conditions so insurance would...

    Audi Connect now £££££

    It’s always been a paid for service. You guys in the U.K. have just been able to ring up and get it for free. I paid 250chf i think a year ago and that is for 2yrs access.

    bye bye google satellite overlay

    Great thanks for the info. It makes sense. Prob why my Satelite Map states the same licence expiry date as the rest of the Audi Connect licenses which is in January 2022, if the satélite map was just on the HD then it wouldn’t need renewing.

    bye bye google satellite overlay

    OK so I’m almost 100% sure i have had the overlay installed. However i have some questions. I just drove to Switzerland to France & at the boarder the internet connection always goes a bit funny as it changes provider. I didn’t expect this to happen to the new satélite view as its now supposedly...
