    Audi Data Plug and App

    So my car came with one of the Audi Data Plugs in the OBD port, seems a bit gimmicky but I thought I'd download the app and try it, is it totally unreliable or is that just mine? It seems to lose the connection and data, I drove to Bristol Airport the other day and my the app said I'd left the...

    Road sign recognition.

    Hi all, I recently collected a 2017 FL S3, it has the virtual dash and the large screen MMI, my question is, can I get the speed limit signs up on the dash? I read on a few sites it can be done. It shows on the MMI but i think thats just information from the sat nav, but even to get that on the...

    Back in Audi Ownership.

    Hi All, I've just collected a 2017 S3 Saloon, seems a good spec and a nice car for sure. I'm sure I'll be on here asking plenty of questions but for now I have only one... I had a Golf MK7 R until a few months ago and I'm sure it had a better sound in sport mode and certainly better "pops and...

    Auto Dip Mirror

    Hi all, I am about to have the windscreen changed due to stone chips in the area that fails the MOT, I thought as I am going to have a new screen I would take the opportunity to swap the rear view mirror for a auto dipping type, my question then is are all auto dipping mirrors the same...

    Here it is.

    So as discussed before, here are the pictures of the wheel i bought for my 07 S4. The question is, will it fit and what will i need? I currently have paddles but thats all, so will my slip ring work and will I need anything else?? I guess there is no way to tell if my airbag will fit until its...

    Coil Packs

    Hi all, having had the massive problems on my 2.0t when a coil pack went I thought I would look into whether the S4 had a recall on them, on another forum there are many threads on this. I contacted my local Audi dealer and gave them the info on my car, they replied with "there is no recall on...

    Will this fit??

    Hi all, I just just won a MFSW on ebay but now reading through Google I am not sure it will fit. the Part number is 8PO 419 091 EB WUL. there are a few posts and some say its from an A4 and other say A5 or even A3. It doesnt have an airbag but I am sure I can source one if all else is good to go...

    Back from Bodyshop.

    Well I got the car back last night, it was in Sewards Bodyshop after the nice man ran in the back of me.. All i can say is dont use them! first problem, the bumper isn't lined up on one side, the gap gets bigger from the light cluster all the way to the wheel, I reckon about a 4mm gap at the...

    Cruise Control Retrofit

    I hope I am not asking something asked a million times already...I intend to retro fit cruise onto my S4 when I get it back, it doesn't have a MFSW but it does have the gear change paddles so what will I need to replace? Also, if I fit a auto dimming rear view mirror does anything need coding...

Its a pain...
