    Anyone done a speaker upgrade (Amplifier Location??)

    I have an Audison 10” external plug and play bass box with its own amplifier, sat on the boot floor - this works well and is broadly similar to the JBL box. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New tyres time

    I replaced my Pirellis with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5s in December - best deal on those at the time was Blackcircles, fitted at my local National tyre place. Very happy with the Goodyears, better comfort & noise levels than the Pirellis or the Vredesteins I had previously. Sent from my...

    Yes I realise that now. I’ll try to return or sell the unit. I’d still like to add CarPlay to my car though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No, my 2016 A7 doesn’t have CarPlay, I was actually trying to add that to the car, not just go from wired to wireless. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    There was no Bluetooth prompt to pair it. I have a feeling the dongle isn’t what I need to give me CarPlay - I have a 2016 A7 without CarPlay and was expecting this to add it to my MMI. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Unfortunately I’m having trouble with this - nothing happens when I plug it into the car USB port... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mine hasn’t done anything when I plugged it in! How did you set yours up and what car are you using it in? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve just looked on the JoyeAuto website and there are two dongles. I have a 2016 facelift A7 with MMI+ so do I need the android auto version? https://www.joyeauto.com/product/wjac-1wireless-apple-carplay-usb-dongle-upgrade-for-aftermarket-android-car-stereo-and-android-tablet/ Sent from my...

    OEM windscreen??

    I’ve not heard of this engine sound moderator. What I think I noticed was an increase in tyre noise with the new screen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    OEM windscreen??

    Perhaps. Btw it took Autoglass 3 attempts to get the active cruise & brake assist calibration right after fitting. Allegedly this was because they were using A6 calibration data by mistake. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    OEM windscreen??

    I’ve got the non oem pilkington windscreen and the hud works fine but I’m not convinced it’s got the same acoustic properties as the oem 4 rings screen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Warped discs or not ???

    Thanks for flagging this up. I’ll reduce my use of the auto hold too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Factory CarPlay Activated

    Looks impressive but how easy is it to use the apps without a touchscreen? How do you navigate and select each one - via the MMI controller or via your phone screen? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    272bhp tdi A7

    I’ve just checked mine again, the trip computer shows 37 over the last 20k but only 31 over my regular 9 mile commute this morning. You’ll see my car is at nearly 53k now so we’ll loosened up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Recall?

    My 2016 A7 272 tdi was in for a recall software update in June, only took around 2.5 hours though... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The A7 Tyres Thread

    Not heard of that problem before. Admittedly I’m on 35 ratio 20” tyres (about to wear out my second set at 50k) but they’re all fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Advice please - new pending purchase

    I have a 2016 272 tdi with 50k on the clock - owned from new - and have never heard the noise you describe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Buying advice please!

    Personally I wouldn’t risk it, just because it’s had expensive work already doesn’t mean it won’t need more. I’ve had three multitronic gearbox cars - A6 & A4 estates that we’re fine up to 75k each and then an A4 cabriolet that had persistent drivetrain issues that none of the Audi box...

    Buying advice please!

    As far as I know the multitronic or Stronic gearboxes were both used in the A7 right from the launch of the car in 2010. I reckon I test drove a Quattro multitronic 245tdi in 2012 but I may have remembered that wrongly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
