Just a thought on the cruise - the stalk has to be in the 'on' position which doesnt give any indication that is on. I think its either pushed back or pulled towards you (as if you were flashing your head lights). Then give it a try.

Intercooler - £239
Air con recharge - £30
Total - £449
If I had gone to Audi, the parts would have been £600 inc vat, plus labour (quoted 4hrs) of £300. So hopefully halved...

Managed to get the warning light but no options in the DIS. We came across the same stumbling point where we...
