    I'm an idiot.... help needed

    So I went ahead and did it yesterday and the car was running fine again immediately. What I did was siphon the tank. I used VCDS and the fuel pump to get it properly empty, I think it’s the only way as I realised it’s a saddle tank. I then disconnected the return and feed under the bonnet and...

    I'm an idiot.... help needed

    Arriving home earlier today in the A8 TDI (D3) and it was almost like it started misfiring. After scratching my head for a while and making a couple of tea I just realised I've gone and put petrol in it! My excuse is I didn't sleep well plus I have a few classics and my brain was on an...

    2010 A8 AMI question

    Hi All, I have a basic question related to the AMI on my recently purchased 2010 A8. I had the manuals in the house when I was trying to figure out how to play music from my phone through the MMI (3G). According to the manual, there is an AMI port in the glovebox. https://imgur.com/bBTF68t So...

    Indeed they were talking about stormy weather for the next week on the Radio this morning, I hope the roads won't be closed, otherwise, I might have problems returning from England with the car on Saturday! Well, anyway can't think of a more luxurious 4x4 to get caught in the snow with :)

    Hi Chris, thanks for the warm welcome. Hope the S8 ownership is going well. That's the dream one to have! I couldn't justify an S8 myself at the moment, but I imagine it's really fun on the roads up here. I imagine I might be a little jealous if I pass you on the roads!

    Hi All, my friend who is a massive VAG fan recommended this forum. I just purchased a 2010 A8 that I'll be picking up next weekend. It's a very well cared for car with only 2 previous owners. I can share more when I get it. I'm collecting from England and bringing up to the North of Scotland...
