    "Fidgety" acceleration

    I have bought a A7 3.0 bitdi from Audi which had stage 1 remap by previous owner. If I accelerate hard, in the first 1 second or so the car feels really fidgety and wants to pull hard to one side or the other. This stops after a second but I have to watch out for it when first putting my foot...

    Audi sold me a tuned car

    I bought a 2014 A7 bitdi from Audi in December. It has just been back to them for a start-stop problem and while trying to do a recall software upgrade on the engine they told me it failed because the engine has been "chip tuned". The car wasn't an Approved Used Audi because it was just over 5...

    Start-stop fault?

    Hi I've just picked up a used Audi A7 (2014 black edition 3.0 bitdi) from an Audi dealer at the weekend. I don't have any fault warnings but I just can't get the start-stop system to kick in (it has actually worked at one junction but that is all). I know the car has to have enough power and...

    RS5 much more to run than S5?

    Hi I am looking at getting a 2014 S5 or RS5. I would prefer the RS5 with the V8 than the S5 6VT for the sound and the more aggressive styling. I won't be taking it on a track and so the S5 is probably a more sensible choice put I am still pulled more towards the RS5. I had been put off the...

    RS5 much more to run than S5?

    Hi I am looking at getting a 2014 S5 or RS5. I would obviously prefer the RS5 with the V8 than the S5 6VT for the sound and for the feeling of knowing I have the top of the range. I won't be taking it on a track and so the S5 is probably a more sensible choice put I am still pulled more...

    Hi I have an 03 a4 1.9 tdi with 155k miles. It has always been a great runner but recently has given a few problems until yesterday when I had to be towed home. The AA didn't know what the problem was so I thought I would ask here. The last few months it would very occasionally judder for...
