    CD track info?..

    I have a 2014 S line quattro with standard MMI. Because I ordered it with B&O I mostly play music off the SD card at 320mbps but recently I've started using the CD player a bit... I've noticed that there is never any track info displayed on the MMI screen; it just shows "Track 1, Track 2, Track...

    Yes, they are hinged at the top. The surround comprises a backing strip which fixes to the car either by screws or sticky pads and the surround/frame which is hinged to the backing strip at the top. The plate slides in , you fold the frame down and it clips at the bottom.

    AMI cable part number?

    Does anyone know the genuine Audi part number for the AMI/3.5mm jack cable? I've got a 2014 A3 with the standard AMI and I want to plug a MP3 into it. I know they are 'two a penny' on eBay but I'd rather have a genuine one...

    Should I debadge my car? (Poll)

    Had my Daytona SB S line 184 quattro S tronic debadged at factory, so had the rings but nothing else. I've added just the OE quattro badge in the exact position it should be, to match the one on the front grille. So, only rings and 'quattro' front and back.

    Only half privacy glass

    Be wary having the screen changed... My 8P was delivered with a badly chipped windscreen (dealer admitted that...) but also a chipped sunroof panel which they didn't admit to... V big row ensued, esp after an attempted repair - the screen and new sunroof panel were incorrectly fitted, two...

    LED headlights recall!

    I just had mine (with LEDs) serviced and I stood next to the technician while he did it and checked the lights re. the recall... I also looked at the detail of the recall on Audi's service computer. There's a right angled rubber drain on the back of each lamp. It has to point down to allow water...

    Music conversion to 320kps... Fault detection

    I've started to rip and convert a load of my CDs into 320kbps mp3 format to put on SD card. I've noticed that there are some minor errors in the files on playback in the car (B&O). Some time ago I came across a thread on the forum that mentioned a piece of software that would automatically check...

    What don't you like about your A3

    My 8V 'sport' suspension is a lot softer than my previous 8P S line setup and the 8P had absolutely no squeaks or rattles. Relative suspension stiffness shouldn't make any difference when the bodyshell of the 8V is supposed to be so stiff. The 8V interior build quality IMHO isn't as good as in...
