    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    I had the mechatronic on my old S3 done under warranty, so have an idea of what's involved and the costs. Am hoping it won't come to that, but thanks for the heads up on the place in reading. Oil change booked for next month, fingers crossed that's all that's required.

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    Not what anyone wants to hear... How many miles/age? Any other symptoms I should look out for, maybe time to px it in!

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    Other half also thinks it is using more petrol than usual, not sure it actually is or if that could really be linked to the gearbox unless it's not choosing gears correctly

    Told the wife to book it in, fingers crossed that's all that's required

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    Going to get it booked in for the oil change as it's coming up on 6 years old eve though we are under 38k miles. Not noticed clunks changing actual gears, just seems to be engaging first from park. Will pay more attention next time I drive it (wife's car!).

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    Will have to check the service record, would have been done if audi said it was needed, per schedule... Else no!

    S-Tronic jerk when pulling away

    Our '59 S4 S-Tronic has recently started to show signs of its age. We've owned it from knew and it's only done 32k and always been main dealer serviced on schedule. The gearbox has started to jerk a little when you pull away, feels ok changing gears at speed but there is a definite pause-clunk...

    Retrofit Dab To Mmi 3g System In An B8

    Can anyone advise where these components fit? Am assuming the antenna module is on one of the pillars and the tuner is in the space behind left rear arch (I think that is where the mmi brains are?) Is the antenna module an additional part, or a replacement? On the s5 it was a replacement, but...

    Retrofit Dab To Mmi 3g System In An B8

    Looks like just the antenna module (8K9.035.225.N) is available for €89 http://www.kufatec.de/shop/en/fistune-dab-solution/antenna-modules/fistune-antenna-module-a4-8k-avant with the FAKRA cable and what I assume is a power lead. Would mean I could buy the main module on eBay (there is one in...

    Retrofit Dab To Mmi 3g System In An B8

    Pretty sure the Kufatec kit replaces the module as well, looks like it is the 4G0035061D module you mentioned, the loom and the aerial module http://www.kufatec.co.uk/shop/en/audi/a4/a4-b8-8k/dab-digital-radio-retrofit-audi-a4-8k-mmi-3g (Cheaper to buy direct from Germany though...

    Retrofit Dab To Mmi 3g System In An B8

    I've seen the kit on kufatec for under €500. That includes the aerial upgrade (think it's just the amp part, in the s5 this went on the c pillar), a loom and what I assume is the tuning box. Any ideas what it costs to get component protection removed?

    Retrofit Dab To Mmi 3g System In An B8

    I know there is a retrofit sub-forum, but that covers all models and I wanted to know if anyone had retrofitted DAB to their B8 with the MMi 3G (i think ours is the High version, has a build in HDD etc.)? Last time I checked it wasn't a common modification, but as things move on I was hoping...

    Replacement S4 Key

    Cheers, that's pretty much the conclusion I came too. £283.50 for key and programming. Thankfully the other half found her keys!

    Replacement S4 Key

    My wife managed to lose her key (well in fairness I think our 1 year old through her keys in the recycling bin and today was recycling day). I have successfully coded keys to my Mk1 TT before (old flip style keys), but never looked into it for the new models with the slot in style key. Is this...

    A/C Problem - Communication issues between components??

    Nobody had A/C problems like this in their B8? Would be just my luck to be the only one and to have it happen twice!

    A/C Problem - Communication issues between components??

    A/C doesn't work! Had gas checked and it is OK, so ran a VCDS scan and got the below. Had a similar issue in June 2011, fixed under warranty - I don't know the details (didn't run a scan that time) but they said it was a wire that needed replacing (took 2-3 days to order it in). Car went in...

    Buying a B8 A4 Avant

    First post on here, having been an active member of various forums for my Audi TT and more recently R32 Golf. We are looking to trade up our 57 plate A3 Sportback 170 S-Line to an A4 Avant with Quattro as we could do with the extra space with a 2 month old and my wife didn't like driving 2wd...
