    Possible brake problem

    I have owned my car since last September and on a few occasions i have thought my brakes weren't working as they should. Basically i have been approaching a roundabout for example, pressed the brake pedal, and i slow down, but not at the rate i should. The pedal feels firm but doesn't respond...

    My avant does 39-40 but only has a three mile run to work. Managed to get 53mpg on a 40 mile run once though. With currently 18k miles will the mpg improve with mileage?

    Clutch or gear box?!

    Didn't imagine the cost would be so high, mines only done 17k so hopefully there's plenty of life left in it :unsure: Nik.

    Clutch or gear box?!

    If you are paying why take it to Audi? My local dealer charges around £100 an hour labour, far cheaper to use a local specialist. There is no way i would take my car back to Audi for anything other than warranty work. Nik.

    I'll state the obvious, one press only opens the drivers door, two to open all doors but you've tried that? Nik.

    Which A4 Avant?

    I have just bought a 2008 TDI Avant SLine and it is top quality. I bought it for family reasons and it works well in that respect. A4 Avants in my opinion are the best looking estate on the market and mine with its 18" wheels & privacy glass looks amazing, this coupled with very good running...

    Audi Sat Nav

    I've just checked the dvd and its a 2008 version so i'm guessing that's the most up to date. I do know about the SD slots but haven't got around to sorting out some mp3's as of yet. Don't you need a blue tooth kit for the phone to connect? Only had the car a week so not had chance to fully...

    Traction Control Wont Turn On When Driving?

    The esp light comes on with ignition then should go out as with the air bag light for example. The only time its lit is when you turn it off as a reminder its been manually turned off and when its actually working ie when you are losing traction, when this happens it flashes on and off quickly.
