    Help Please Low Battery Warning - Battery About to Go?

    Thank you both! Was on edge overnight as was more worried the alarm would activate, especially with me parking in a communal area. I do indeed have a friend nearby, it sounds like a CTEK charger would be a good shout. Do you mind me asking? Is it via the engine +/- points you use the CTEK...

    Help Please Low Battery Warning - Battery About to Go?

    Hi all, Started the car this afternoon and for the first time since owning last summer, it stuttered before starting (no warnings), but did start up. Thought it was strange so pulled up in a car park just down the road, stopped, restarted and low and behold I get a 'Low Battery' alert in the...

    A4 upgrades!

    Does anyone know the correct part number for the B8 flat bottom steering wheel please? Also, is the B8 FBSW cross platform i.e. used on other Audi models? I keep seeing several other Audi cars with similar wheels but I'm not sure. I have 3G basic so my wheel has extra buttons but just not flat...

    Replenishing Cracked Leather

    Hi all, Am the proud owner of a new 2012 A4 B8 Black Edition. It's in pretty good condition for an 8 year old car, however, the leather on some seats, where there's been lots of use, is now showing its its age. All stitching in place and no cracks have gone all the way through, but feel like...

    New Audi Key

    Hi, Have just bought a 2012 B8 Black Edition and it has only come with one key. Is the only option for me to go to Audi or does anyone know a reputable firm in London who could also cut and code it please? Stupid question, but is it easier to pay someone to do it all or should I buy the fob...

    Lovely car mate, looks like you have the MMI 3G+ with audio pairing and the joystick on the control knob. Only just got mine so can't comment on lag. Could it be software or the knob controller itself?

    New Black Edition Owner Saying Hello :)

    Thanks Thanks. The wheels are growing on me, but bizarrely just always been an OEM guy :shrug: Ah OK, its the AMI cable. I've seen Bluetooth bolt ons as I believe with the MMI 3G lite I can't get audio over BT just phone? Will have to look at an AMI BT type thing to see if I can get audio...

    New Black Edition Owner Saying Hello :)

    Hi everyone, New B8 black edition owner, really pleased with the car so far thought I'd drop by. I'm coming from a 987 Boxster and bizarrely, couldn't be happier. As much as I loved the 987, it was arguably the most inconvenient car I had, so I love that I have a big car, with 4 doors, a...
