    Anybody else had Adblue/tank problems?

    2016 (66) A4 Avant 2.0 38k miles Engine management came on a couple of weeks ago, then went out. Bought a code reader and it was indicating P20C4 which is a reductant heater circuit high. Came back again week later then went out. Had the 2000 mile adblue warning earlier in the week and then...

    Recurring fault after warranty expiry-any experiences?

    So, my 66 plate Avant's aircon stopped working in the summer. Along with this the air conditioning was making what can only be described as a hollow blowing noise. Took it JCT600, they weighed the gas which indicated empty, but it held vacuum pressure. They filled it free of charge and said it...

    Audi Connect subscription renewal

    After a free renewal of licences for Audi Connect, my subscription is due to expire. Equally I'm sure a lot of tech pack owners will be in the same boat for 66 plate vehicles. Has anybody got an idea of prices? Or if I purchase a data sim, will this give me the same functionality? TIA

    B9 s4 air con regas?

    They recovered 70g instead of the 540 that was meant to be in there. So it was a leak. Had a squeaking belt too so they’re stripping the engine to replace the belts. They’ve put a dye in to try and find the leak. Hopefully all done under warranty. Got a nice A6 Avant 50 Quattro that goes like...

    B9 s4 air con regas?

    I’ve had the exact same problem with my 66 plate avant. A strange hissing noise on turn on from vents and no cold air. Bought a groupon deal before I realised its the expensive gas! Rang Audi today and they want to charge me a £60 diagnostic fee if nothing other than a Regas is found. £90 for...

    Audi Connect subscription renewal

    As per the title, my audi connect services are due to expire this month. Has anybody managed to extend their subscription, and if so, how much was it? I got it extended by a year when I purchased the car September 2016.

    Squealing brakes?

    They asked if I wanted a wash and vac. Didn't realise they do it with a scouring pad!

    Squealing brakes?

    They replaced both the discs and pads under warranty and have carried out a software update to stop the spurious temperature readings. They've also carried out a shoddy vac and wash and I've found this damage, that I certainly didn't cause :(

    Squealing brakes?

    After them finding nothing wrong with the temperature gauge and brakes a month ago, I drove off only to find them still faulty on the way home. Had to wait a month to get another appt. Left in this morning and they've now carried out a software update, and cleaned the brakes to find them still...

    Incorrect temperature readout.

    Rang Audi Lincoln with my registration and they said there were two outstanding recalls - software update and the spoiler trim. So it's booked in next week and they're looking at my squealing brakes and thermometer.

    Incorrect temperature readout.

    I just read about it myself on the forum. My plastic trims seem fine. I'll try and ring audi this morning and see what its about.

    Incorrect temperature readout.

    My temp gauge is often massively out. The last few days it has been displaying 3 degrees. I know its been colder than other years but definitely not this cold in August. Has anybody else has spurious readings. Not mega bothered, but don't want the engine behaving differently due to it thinking...

    Squealing brakes?

    I’ve got just over 8k on the clock and when I brake, just as I come to a complete stop, my brakes squeal like a banshee! Any ideas what would cause this, and would it be covered under warranty?

    Avant Rear Cycle Carrier (S-Line)

    Sorry for the late reply, was having login issues with my fb account! Thanks for the pics. Have you actually used this on the car? Where do you attach the straps? I thought that the plastic spoiler might not give it the security it needs, but if you've been ok with yours I may start looking on...

    Avant Rear Cycle Carrier (S-Line)

    I've selected my car on their website and it says only tow ball mounted carriers are compatible? I was wondering if its the rear spoiler that causes an issue?

    Avant Rear Cycle Carrier (S-Line)

    Anyone managed to find/use one? When I check the usual manufacturers (Thule etc.) their compatibility checkers don't seem to like the B9 Avant. I'm talking about the boot carriers, whereby they strap onto the tailgate. I've got roof mounted carriers but would like a solution to carry the kids'...

    Are the speakers in the pillars an american thing, or is this part of a sound upgrade?
