    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

    My Audi Connect account expired (facelift A3 E-Tron 07-2017) and actually don't need the functions it offered. Only think I 'miss' is the Google sattelite view in my virtual cockpit (only because it looks so nice. In terms of navigation details, the standard colored rendering is better). Would...

    Actuator fuel flap won't open A3 E-Tron, how to replace?

    The fuel door/flap of my A3 E-Tron often does not open anymore. I think it's a slightly more 'special' system than with other Audi's (am I correct?): The system is automatically vented when the tank valve is closed. This is to 'preserve' the fuel. Because there are people who always drive...

    Hi guys, My '5 free map updates' and 3 year Connect services expired (07-2017 A3 E-Tron). I have 2019/2020 maps installed and want 2021 map, but not absurd for the price the dealer asks for it. I read that if you change the correct FEC code to a different value you are letting the system think...

Was difficult to find, because of the high axle loads and unclear and contradictory information on different sites (different info on German and United States Bilstein websites, etc.) Finally I found two correct...

    Coilovers for my A3 E-Tron: does a quattro set fit?

    Hi Guys, I have a facelift (2017) A3 E-Tron Sportback. Lowered it a couple of months ago with Eibach Pro springs. Liked the looks (because stock the E-Tron sits verrrrrrry high!), liked the behavior on flat roads, but didn't like the behavior on potholes/speedbumps/etc. The o.e.m. shocks...

    Chrome window trim retrofit?

    In 'contrast to most owners' I want to change my o.e.m. black window trim to chrome. I have a black E-Tron and I like the chrome look. I also want the 'roof bars', but I think this is difficult to retrofit... Is it possible to change the window trim to chrome trims? What's involved?

    Hi Guys, I have A 2017 facelift, Dutch A3 E-Tron (living in The Netherlands). The E-Tron stock ride height is awfully high (fender-to-ground height is around 69cm / 26.16 inch). I tried Eibach Pro springs. Looks were great (fender-to-ground-height 64cm/ 25.2 inch), but ride quality on...
