    S5 b9.5 spacer and extended locking nut

    In my opinion you should definitely not use a grinder! The original bolts are 27mm long. 27+12mm (spacer) = 39mm bolt 27+15mm(spacer)=42mm bolt you can safely add up to 5 mm or subtract up to 3 mm. So for the 12mm spacers: 36~44mm bolts And for the 15mm spacers: 39~47mm bolts I myself have...

    I have automatic reversible belt tensioners, but weak. How to adjust?

    Thanks for your quick answer. What would you mean with 'self calibrating'?

    I have automatic reversible belt tensioners, but weak. How to adjust?

    My A4 B9 (2018 update model) has 'automatic reversible seatbelt tensioners'. Everytime I start the car and drive off, the belt automaticly tightens. (Not to be confused with the seatbelt system which tightens itself if it predicts an accident. Or the pyro tensioners when you crash. Those are...

    Wind noise from drivers window

    I used a glass suction cup on the window to push the glass up/sideways towards the B Pilar and lubricated (wd40) the sides where the window slides in to when opened. Opened, closed several times and firmly pushed the glass several times with the suction cup to the mentioned position. You will...

    Will 12mm spacers give me the flush look?

    Thanks. I hang a small cord/rope with a small weight, taped to the arch and when the cord hung still, I measured the distance from the tyre sidewalls. Front 10mm and tears 12~13mm. Would 12mm rear and 10mm front be best, or better 10mm on all wheels (performance/handling/looks/etc)?

    Will 12mm spacers give me the flush look?

    A couple of weeks ago I bought a 2019 Audi A4 40tfsi AVANT Black Optics. It has the lovely Audi Sport 5-V-Spoke 19" 8.5j ET40 245/35/19 wheels (on sport suspension) I want to buy spacers to get the 'FLUSH' look. What size would be perfect? I tried to measure and I think 12mm on the rear and...

    Headrest Removal

    In my 2019 A4 Avant S-Line I have the height adjustable head restraints, but I want the comfort adjustable models. Who know the part-numbers for the comfort models (so I can search locally for them)? I have the half-leather-half-fabric S-Line seats. I have this model: I want this model:

    Wind noise from drivers window

    I've read the TPI and this is exactly my problem. I tried to tilt the window angle backwards while slowly closing the window, and because of the better tilted end position the wind noise almost completely disappeared. Until I automatically open and close my driver side window again... The...

    Wind noise from drivers window

    Since a couple of weeks I notice wind noise (speeds above ~50mph) from the location/red arrow in my attached photos. Drove my facelift A3 E-Tron since 2018 and it always was completely silent... What could be wrong? Is this the same problem as mentioned in the TPI? Are TPI's free on a 2017 A3...

    How to install RS3 paddles on a facelift S3

    So the paddles with the opening on top are EARLIER models? Reading the topic in your above link says those are the newest models...? Best to buy then from the dealer or another (Dutch) place?

    How to install RS3 paddles on a facelift S3

    This looks like a old thread, but hope my question can be answered: My right (+) paddle broke. I don't know why but the upper plastic hinge broke. So it doesn't work properly anymore. I want to replace them and maybe upgrade them for nicer models. I see 3 different o.e.m. models: -stock A3...

    Facelift Traffic Jam Assist Retrofit

    Unfortunately the time-out is still there. if you come to a complete stop, but from my memory it is more than 3 seconds (have to check...). I guess this is a safety matter (the same as touching your steering wheel after several seconds [without the bottle trick :frog:]) Don't forget to set the...

    Facelift Traffic Jam Assist Retrofit

    I have a facelift 2017 A3 E-Tron, also with ACC, lane assist, auto high beam, etc., but from factory without Traffic Jam Assist. A local (Dutch) VCP/VCDS specialist coded TJA and it works great. I use it every day in traffic jam (put a bottle of water in my steering wheel and I never have to...

    Facelift Lowering springs on facelift S3, new top mounts required?

    My local specialist (when he installed Eibach Pro springs) advised and installed SACHS topmounts, because they are 'better/longer lasting without creaking noises'. Normally only new bearings are 'advisable'. Mounts can be re-used if you don't want to spend the extra money. Mount + bearing...

    Coilovers, replace with new strut bearings or bearings+mounts?

    @Harvey Thanks for the info. Last month I bought Febi-Bilstein brake rotors, brake pads, filters, brake fluid etc for my other car, mk1 Audi TT. Feels and looks o.e.m. or even better because al the brake rotors are quality painted (the hubs and sides). Good to hear I can also use top bearings...

    Coilovers, replace with new strut bearings or bearings+mounts?

    I'm planning on buying coilovers for my A3 E-Tron. To save some money, I'm going to install them myself. Before fitting, I want to place new (o.e.m.) upper strut bearings on them. I want to do this because reusing the old ones is extra change of creaking noises (had this before when I...

    Facelift Activate Google Earth view without Audi connect

    I haven't 'enabled' the above settings yet. Remote climate control, lock status, etc still work. Indeed, those services work without subscription and I use the MyAudi app almost every day (pre-heating, pre-airconditioning, etc). Apple Carplay or Android auto in VC would be the ultimate...
