    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...

    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...

    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...

    Trim Buzzes/rattles...

    6 months and 3k miles into ownership, my SB S line 184 quattro has some really annoying trim buzzes/rattles - at least three different ones I think... It's really quite disappointing in a near 35k premium car. I don't agree the 8V is better quality than the 8P - my 8P felt more solid generally...

    Diy Oil Change

    Has anyone done a DIY oil change on their diesel 8V? Mine is now 6 months old and the oil is going dark. I'm going to keep the car a very long time and want to do regular oil changes without paying dealer rates... Is it an easy job?

    Second hand SD Satnav warning...

    Went to my dealer today to ask how much it would cost to activate a second hand sat nav SD card (that I've seen on an internet auction site...). I was advised by the service guy that these cards are issued with one compatible activation code and that once that code has been used once, it can't...

    Can Hold Assist be set permanently on?

    I know Hold Assist has been the subject of numerous posts but I can't find reference to my particular question... I have Hold Assist optioned on my car. I remember someone on the forum once mentioning that once activated they never had to touch the handbrake or Hold Assist buttons again...

    Factory visit

    Just back from Ingolstadt where I had a tour of the A3 production facility (my car is being built this week...) and 'Audi Forum' and museum. It was fascinating and I can thoroughly recommend it for a full on Audi experience. I saw some lucky Brit's Estoril S3 SB going down the line. Alas I...

    Which SD card for music?

    Does any clever audiophile person out there know which SD card is best for music storage and use with a B&O? There are all sorts of different types of SD out there with different speeds and classes and wotnot and I haven't got a clue which to go for. Do I need a 'HC' card and is there any...

    Factory tour booked!

    I've booked a tour of the Ingolstadt factory - the week my car is [currently] due to be built! I know it's very unlikely I'll actually see MY car going down the line but it'll be fun to see it all going on 'in the flesh'... About 8 weeks to go til delivery! 😀

    Anyone done a factory tour?

    My SB S line TDI 184 quattro S tronic is due for build week 8. I fancy doing the factory tour before delivery. Has anyone done it and if so how do I go about arranging it? (My dealer was unhelpful when I asked...).

    10 spoke alloy wheel partnumber

    Does anyone know, or have access to find out the partnumber of the grey finish 10 spoke alloy wheel available as an option on the S line? I really fancied adding them to my order in Nov but I chickened out and went with the standard fit double spokes... Now I'm thinking of ordering a set to fit...

    Build was week 4 - now 8!... :-(

    Popped into dealer today... He checked and told me that the build week for my SB TDI 184 S line Quattro (ordered Nov 1st) is now week 8 when it was week 4... Cheesed off cos I booked the 1st March off work for handover but now it seems it won't even be in the country then... Other people seem to...

    Woohoo! FINALLY ordered!!!!

    Well, after a VERY long wait and much configuring and deliberation (nearly divorce...) I have slapped my deposit down! 6.5% discount and full tank of fuel. Just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you who commented/contributed to my threads. And now the LONG wait til March begins... Spec...

    184 Quattro *manual*?!!!

    I know I've been banging on for this for a while now but... FINALLY just had the long awaited test drive in a SB S Line TDI 184 Quattro S Tronic... (I've wanted a manual version of this car ever since I lost my 8P 170 Q man after it was damaged during delivery 18 mths ago...). Ok, so I think I...

    Just been told by salesman that a SB TDI 184 S-line Quattro S-tronic ordered now would likely not b delivered before APRIL?!!! Anyone else ordering now getting these estimates on delivery?

    S-tronic question...

    I am thinking of placing an order for a SB S-Line 184 Quattro and it will HAVE to be S-tronic as there is no manual option... Now, my Mother's MINI has an auto box and to shift up with the stick you pull back and push forward to change down. This seems entirely intuitive to me. However, my Dad's...

    On the verge...

    ...of putting my order in. It's been 18 months since my new 8P SB S-Line Quattro 170 was delivered - damaged... After three weeks of upset and heated letter writing I managed to reject the car and got a full refund. Instead of re-ordering an identical replacement I decided to delay and wait for...

    Release of TDI 150 Quattro manual?

    Has anyone heard yet when the TDI 150 Quattro manual will be released? Surely it can't be long now the 184 Quattro S-tronic is out. I've got an order waiting to be slapped down and the dealers' being coy... Sportback S-Line TDI 150 Quattro Brilliant Red/Daytona Grey Comfort package Delete...
