    Servicing costs

    What are people paying at Audi for servicing? My 21 plate 40TFSi is due one soon, 17k on clock, Audi Newcastle have quoted £622 for oil change and inspection, pollen filter, and a brake fluid change. I can't help but feel that's extortionate. Last A4 they wanted £420 but reduced it to £257...

    Help, what oil

    I've had mine 15 months. Around the doors is anywhere between 22 and 34mpg according to the computer. On a clear run from work, 17mi down the A1 from Northumberland to Gateshead, I can get up to 55mpg. Best I've gotten is on a run to Cambridge at 58mpg. Performance wise it's ok. I don't tend...

    Is it time to go electric?

    I've just priced up a BMW i4 eDrive 40 M Sport through the salary sacrifice scheme at work. Net cost was around £546 a month which includes insurance, servicing, a home charger and 5000mi of public charging. Given my A4 costs me £439/mo and on top of that I have servicing, insurance and fuel...

    Help, what oil

    My 2021 40TFSI 204PS told me on Thursday that it needed a litre of oil adding. I went to Halfords to be told they don't sell oil for that engine. Went on Euro Car Parts website and that too said there was no oil suitable. I reverted to the manual which is pretty much useless. Then I remembered...

    Android Auto map Vs Audi Navigation map

    Anyone find they prefer the Audi satellite navigation map (in satellite image view) on the MMI screen compared to the Android Auto's version of Google maps? On my 2017 A4 I much preferred the AA sat nav screen on the MMI, but notice in the 2021 model the screen size is much smaller than Audi's...

    Leasing advice?

    We've leased two cars this year and found the deals on leaseloco. Play around with mileage and terms because there are some quirks in the system. On some vehicles, it was cheaper going for the next mileage bracket up than the one you wanted.

    Any detailers north east

    The wife is in a Cupra Facebook group and someone just put photos of their Formentor having just been done at Pilote Detailing in Boldon. Looks good. Their website says a new car detail with ceramic coating from £600

    What Detailing / Car Care Products Have You Bought / Ordered Today?

    Mrs took delivery of a new Cupra Formentor last week. Gave it a coat of Waxaddict Quartz which I've had for ages as shown in photo. But bought some Soft99 Fusso Coat yesterday so think I'll strip it all off and apply that, and also do my A4. Might get a DA and polish my A4 prior to apply Fusso...

    Any detailers north east

    Full detail with paint correction and ceramic coating such as GTechniq plus wheels and interior will probably be pushing over £800 + VAT at DDB

    Variable Servicing

    When they say in line with manufacturers recommendation. Would the MMI service interval indicator count as the recommendation? Mine was initially showing first oil change at 14500 miles but is now saying 17000 miles.

    I find wired AA rather glitchy at the best of times. Like sometimes, after a couple of oral replies to messages it just loses the plot and stops reducing the music volume so it can't hear what you're saying. Does wireless overcome this?

    Audi Lease - Acceptable Damage Limits

    My 2017 A4 went back to Audi last month. Mannheim inspected it. There was a small 10mm long scratch through the paint that cost £110 and a 50p piece size impact on the rear bumper which cost me £55. A 35mm long scuff on one alloy was noted but not charged. The Mannheim guy told me to reject...

    Joining the B9 club

    Welcome. Which engine did you opt for? My previous A4 came with an Audi boot liner entirely in error which I've put into my new B9. Can't fault it though imagine they're expensive. I have no recommendations on rubber mats as I just use the Audi carpet ones

    Metallic rattle

    I had a gearstick on my old 2017 A4 make a rattle like this. Took a while to try to work out where it was from. Audi replaced the gearstick if I recall correctly.

    B9 2.0 TFSI or 2.0 TDI 190

    I had a 2017 A4 190 TDI Ultra manual and switched to a 2021 204PS TFSI S Tronic. On a long run, Newcastle to Cambridge, the TDI computer showed over 68mpg. Working out at refill wasn't far away either. Two weeks ago the TFSI got 52mpg and refueling worked out just over 51mpg. It's a MHEV so...
