    Had new A5 spoiler painted and.....

    I’m not sure what to do....... I bought a genuine A5 boot spoiler from Audi. It came primed ready to paint. A bodyshop near to were I work quoted me £75 to paint. It seemed too cheap but the place has good reviews on google so I had it done. I collected the spoiler today and it looked ok until...

    I’ve bought some genuine Audi 19” alloys to replace my current 18” alloys and need to know if the bolts will be ok? Or will I require longer bolts? Thanks in advance

    Vibrating noise coming from drivers door

    Ive noticed a vibrating noise coming from the drivers door. It’s constant but worse if I turn up the volume on the radio. I don’t think it’s speaker related. It seems to come from near the led alarm light is. Just wondering if anyone has had this issue and if there’s something I should be doing...

    Genuine Audi led interior upgrade goes dim

    I got the Audi led kit for half price, still a rip off if you price the bulbs individually mind but I’m a sucker for genuine accessories so......

    What type of service do i need

    Ive just bought a 65 plate A5 with 16500 miles and I think, full service history. The service due indicator came on today, service due is 29 days but I have no idea what service it is?

    Service history

    Should I have a stamped service history booklet or is the service history stored online in ”Myaudi”? My A5 is a 2015 65 plate. I have registered on myaudi but cannot seem to find a service history tab. On my previous car, a Mercedes, it was all stored online which is what makes me think it’ll...

    I could always turn off the service reminder on my golf by doing a sequence on the dials stork thingy. Is it the same on the Audi? Or do I have to plug it in to a VAGCOM and wipe it like that?
