    Rust/perforation Warranty?

    Yesterday whilst removing some tar, I found a few bubbles under the paint and a very small amount of rust at the very bottom of the passenger door where the aluminium blades meet the paint. Just wondering if anyone has any info on the 12 year corrosion warranty from Audi, the car is a 2005...

Is it what it seems or...

    Rear Heated Seats?

    I pulled the rear bench to clean underneath and noticed there are wires going into the foam underside and the only things I could conclude they could possibly be are: 1) Occupancy sensors for seat belt, but I don't think this is the case or 2) Heated seat element wiring The car doesn't have...

    Bolt & spacer question help needed!

    I am buying some 20mm spacers so I can change the original "double spoke" 17" alloys on my allroad with a 25 offset to 18" RS6 style Ronal alloys with a 43 offset, but i don't know what size/type bolts to purchase. If I get the type of spacer that screws to the hub (as opposed to pass thorugh)...

    Door pull interior lights?

    Has anyone upgraded the little red glow light by the door pull? It's a nice touch but could do with being a bit brighter for my liking.

    RS6 spoiler on Allroad?

    Anyone know where I can get hold of a RS6 spoiler OEM kit? Audi used to do one that i understand would basically stick on top of the existing spoiler/brake light on the allroad but i can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Tiptronic Gearbox Issue

    Started my allroad 2.5 TDI today and when i selected reverse it shifted in to gear really hard and then all of the modes PRNDS were highlighted in red and the car needed a lot of revs to move. I switched the engine off, and started it again immediately and everything was fine and was fine for...

    Quick question:

    Why is it that for winter conditions, the allroad, or any tiptronic car for that matter doesn't have the ability to manually select to pull off in second gear or have a winter button to select such a setting? I know it's got Quattro, but still starting in second is still advantageous on snow, etc.

    Door problems?

    My driver side door seems to require a lot of travel from the outside handle before it opens compared with the other doors. I've heard this can be adjusted and if left may result in the door eventually not opening from the outside. What is the process for making this adjustment? Many thanks.

    RNS-E battery drain?

    When i bought my allroad the Nav DVD was missing. So the dealer gave me a disc from a 2007 A4 RNS-E. I have noticed that the compass/road name is not displayed in the DIS like on other C5 and also the unit hisses a lot when i get in the car and turn off the ignition. Is it possible that the...

    Tiptronic torque converter?

    I've read that the 2.7T allroad had a redesigned torque converter from the factory from 2004 onwards. I also understand that the box prior to this was the same as the one in the 2.5 TDI. Logic would suggest that therefore the 2.5 TDI from 2004 has a newer torque converter also, but can anyone...

    Most frustrating hour of my life!

    Changing the sidelight bulbs on my car. After much swearing and gritting of teeth i managed to remove the driver side bulb and replace it but the passenger side i failed. Just couldn't get the holder to release from the reflector! Got to be the least user friendly design i've ever come across...

    Street name in DIS

    I updated my RNS-E to 2009 maps from 2005 and now the name of the street/road I am driving along does not appear in the DIS. The name used to be in the DIS even when there was no route planned, but now only when the system is actually navigating. Any ideas how to get it back? Car is a 2005...

    Older Diesels

    Hi, me again with my questions. What makes the older diesels less refined and noisier? Take the 2.5TDI Tiptronic, at pulling away speeds it sounds quite loud. I've read things like 200ml of 2 stroke cures this as new diesel doesn't have the same lubrication as older diesel due to regulations...

    Few tiptronic questions?

    Car is an 05 2.5TDI allroad with coming up to 25,000 miles. I'm assuming since it has been serviced properly and has such low miles everything is fine mechanically but: a) Why does the transmission hold 1st gear for so long when gently moving away from a standstill? In tiptronic mode you can...

    17" OEM wheels - what tyres?

    What does everyone think is the best year round option for tyres in the UK. Size is 225/55/17. I was thinking of Goodyear 4 Seasons which have the M+S mark and the snow flake/mountain mark. It seems to have a decent tread pattern that isn't going to be stumped by a muddy field and will also...
