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...
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).
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...
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...
Finally I found the correct ordernumbers for Bilstein coilovers for my A3 E-Tron.
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...
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...
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?
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...
I'm looking for a set original 19" wheels for my facelift A3 E-Tron.
I can't decide between these two models yet:
Can you guys tell me what both wheels are 'called/official name' and partnumbers?
And what about o.e.m. sizes? Are they all 235/35/19 8J ET49?
As mentioned in this topic (https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/bilstein-b12-kit-experience.387979/) I fitted some Eibach Pro springs on my FL A3 E-Tron.
Happy with the looks and sportiness, but not with the 'clicking (or creaking?) sound' when steering (standing still or driving...
Today I painted the brake calipers (black), wheel hubs (silver) and placed very nice looking Audi logo's on the calipers on my A3 E-Tron (all heat resistant).
Verrrrrrrrry happy with the result!
I like the white Audi ring decals sóóó much. Look at the tiny ones on the back :haha:
I'm looking (in The Netherlands) for 'chiptuning' my facelift A3 E-Tron.
Most tuners say the combined-power (petrol engine+electric engine) goes from 204hp tot 260~280hp and from 350Nm to 435~480Nm. :yahoo:
Is see this at local experts like 'VAGTECHNIEK'...
