    Facelift (Facelift) Sound settings resetting frequently (B&O)

    It depends on the software version being used and I must also say the MMI hardware. My A3 has a very low production number and when the update was processed resulted in corrupting the software of the MMI, after which Audi simply replaced the MMI unit with a new one under warranty. What do you...

    Facelift 2020 Audi A3 Final Model Year?

    The UK definitively has the cheapest prices - Bought my A3 s-line nearly 2 years ago with just 2K miles on the clock for £21000, I think the listing price when new was close to £30,000. When I checked the same specifications with my local dealer the same car was worth €44000

    Missing subwoofer adjustment control

    Just a small note. Whilst the update will give you the sub, unfortunately the audio settings still reset every now and then. As MarttiMat rightly said, if you are still under warranty it is worth having this done free of charge. In my case they could not update the firmware properly as this was...

    Missing subwoofer adjustment control

    Just a head's up... the software update can give problems as I had highlighted in an other post. The service technician at my local dealership tried several times to install the update and every time the software got corrupted leading to a loss in the telephone module. Ultimately after...

    B&O with and without tech pack

    So the car has been with the dealership for the past 3 days whist I was abroad to rectify the issue and the final outcome is that I need a new MMI module. The MMI was re-flashed a number of times and patches applied but the software is getting corrupted every time. The new MMI module is...

    B&O with and without tech pack

    @ohms12 I had a chat over the phone with the electronics technician of Audi here in Malta and told me that after you remove the battery the windows need to be re-calibrated. To do this you simply close the windows and then do 3 clicks with the window closing switch. This will teach the computer...

    B&O with and without tech pack

    Ohms go in the MMI/car settings/central lock. There should be an option for open window with long press. Select/deselect the current option. Switch off the car and re-select it. This should be enough to reset the setting. At least this worked for me after updating the software of the MMI.
