    DSG Issue ?

    Hi, no never use the hh, it's not as aggressive as the hh just feels like the torque converter is struggling or needs calibration (I know)

    DSG Issue ?

    Having come from the 8sp ZF box this is relatively new to me, although my wife has a new DSG Golf I'm reasonable au fait with the characteristics of the box. When I'm facing up a slight incline I cannot get the car to 'creep' forward unless I take my foot right off the brake. Bit difficult to...

    2015 MMI Touch issue

    When I have been listening to the radio, turn the car off and then get back in the MMI won't remember and will play a random track from the Jukebox? I have the car booked into Audi for a couple of other bits and have asked them to check but just wondered if anybody had the same issue , only...

    Just purchased an A7 Quattro Sline Black Edition 66 plate

    The issue is they glaze the **** out of them so it often takes 3-4 washes to show.

    Epic thread and fantastic workmanship, I can't help but wonder about the legitimacy of all the parts for sale on eBay and the like.

    Facelift Bad service experience

    Welcome to the world of approved dealers (of any marque I may add) this is why my cars only go to a local indi, I like to deal with the guy with the spanner in his hand.

    New to Audi and am I just being paranoid ?

    Not just me then, the box is silky smooth but I was going to ask the dealer to check it due to the lag from D to R and also I find it difficult (not impossible) to creep slowly in traffic, take the foot off the brake and it wants to creep at c5mph start to brake and I feel it's looking to...

    Few questions, new owner.

    Audi have a fixed price of £1.50 per litre including labour to do this, I bought 2 x 20l drums from the local VW dealership and did it myself (I also bought the adaptor for c£9 which is not really needed and in fact I think it slows down the filling)...

    Clicking/Clunk noise when accelerating

    Never heard of the ABS thing and never noticed it on mine tbf, maybe brake binding, driveshaft ? I'll have a play later and let you know. My BMW did it ever so slightly when you tapped the brake for the first time slowing, I was told it was some slight movement in the pads, I sold it before...

    Tyre Wall Thickness for Continental Tyres

    Ah, much worse than mine, as I say take it to a specialist but that's really not acceptable if they've missed those and they do need changing.

    Just purchased an A7 Quattro Sline Black Edition 66 plate

    Ah, then I'm surprised they are doing something as I'd suspect it's reasonable to expect a second hand car to have signs of wear use commensurate with age and mileage and would refer back to buyer beware. The form is very ominous and just says "check bodywork inspection" I doubt they do much of...

    Tyre Wall Thickness for Continental Tyres

    Mine had a bit out of one of the tyres, it doesn't concern me as I know it's only the protector rim and doesn't compromise the structure. If you are concerned take it to an indi tyre specialist (bearing in mind the dealer is not a tyre specialist) and get their advice. Your saving point is...

    Auto Start / Stop button locks steering turns off power steering

    yup, Mrs 67 plate Golf SE has adaptive cruise which i believe monitors the vehicle in front and fires the car up as soon as it moves off.

    Great result, I didn't realise it happened 'after' you'd agreed to buy it, i thought it was a mark you'd missed.
