    The next recall...

    The PDF outlining the procedure for this recall says there's a software update. Surely if you get a software update it will contain all previous updates...so I'll end up with the Emissions Scandal fix as it was purely a software update?

    The next recall...

    I just got this letter about my 2012 Audi A5 Sportback TDi. You guys sure it's 2013 on? I got several letters about the Audi Emissions scandle fix which I never went in for. After reading some people reporting it has a negative effect on performance why would you! Maybe they are just trying to...

    Using VSO to check Mileage

    Hi folks, following the advice from the sticky thread I checked the mileage of a car on Motoring : Directgov - MOT status check request It seems that you can only check the most recent MOT? So you can only really gauge if it has been clocked in the last year? Is there any way of checking the...

    Vehicle check when no plate on car

    Cheers. Going to call the garage today. But wanted to understand the situation first...in case they tried to spoof me to avoid me doing a car check :-) Is there any way I can do a car history check with VIN? I understand I can check the VSO system for mileage if I have the following: * The...

    Vehicle check when no plate on car

    The car check is done via the website. There's no option to enter VIN. It's still not clear to me what the process is when a seller trades their car into a garage and keeps their reg , where the seller was the only owner of this vehicle. If the car only has one owner there will be no...

    Vehicle check when no plate on car

    Does this mean it can take up to four weeks for a new registration number to be issued? If it does mean this then how can I do a check on this car right now?

    Vehicle check when no plate on car

    Ah ok. Got you now, thanks. I'm from Ireland so not overly familiar with uk systems. So if I'm understanding correctly the car will already have a new number. Because for the original owner to sell the car to the garage and keep his number for his new car he would have had to inform the DVLA...

    Car Buyers beware-flaw in HPI mileage checks

    I'm looking at using this site to check a car I'm considering buying. I'm from Ireland so I'm not familiar with uk documents for car registration and MOT. What information do I need from the seller? Does this system show you the mileage for all MOTs that the car has gone through or you can...

    Vehicle check when no plate on car

    What if the car only had one owner and they transfered their private plate to the car when buying. Then there would be no original number? I'm guessing I will just need to wait for the garage to get a new plate before I can use the online vehicle check websites.

    Vehicle check when no plate on car

    Thanks. I'll give them a shout. But if the car is on a new plate will the online systems that do vehicle checks be able to check the mileage at all the previous MOTs?

    Vehicle check when no plate on car

    Hi folks. Just wondering how you do a vehicle check on a car when the original registration plate is not on the car. For example if someone traded a car into a garage and kept the registration plate as it was a personalised plate. In this situation how can I as a buyer do a check on the car...

    S-line Facelift - Different Dashboard Colours?

    Just wondering if anyone knows whether the dashboard on the A4 S-line (facelift late 2009 onwards) came in different colours - possibly grey and black? Looking at some ads it seems some dash's are black whereas others appear grey. See pics below - first one looks black, second one look grey...

    Suspension on Sline with 19' alloys

    So when you got the car from Audi, did you actually get anything in the accompanying documentation that said you have S-Line suspenion? Not doubting you have S-Line suspension, just wondering if I'm looking at cars how I determine that they have it...can I rely on this 1BV code?

    Suspension on Sline with 19' alloys

    Cheers Soot1e. Got your sticker via email, here are your codes below: You have the same code as my friend for the suspension, 1BV. He thinks he has the "Sports" suspension and not the "S line" suspension. Confused now...as Daggerit mentioned above that he has the 1BV code and he's pretty...

    Suspension on Sline with 19' alloys

    Would you be able to post up a pic of this? You mention above that your sticker has "S line" suspension listed with 19inch alloys. I'd just like to know what I am looking for, so would be good to see.
