Just bought a q7- have a few questions


Registered User
Hi all

finally bought my q7 , its a 56 plate 3.0 tdi sline Gray , 70000 miles.

Have a few questions.

1) it has a panoramic roof- (I wasn't looking for this, it just happens to have it) - after reading on the net , quite a few people have problems with the roof drainage (Bose amp, sat nav getting wet etc, water in front foot wells etc).

how common is this ? , what action do I need to take ?- i getting a bit paranoid now!!!

Is there an Audi Recall for the leaking roofs ?

2)there is a phone cradle in the comfort armrest -Nokia I think - can this be easily removed and replaced with the audi iPhone cradle ?

3)the car has , colour sat nav, parking plus ,electric boot , ---- do I have blue tooth ?

4)if I have blue tooth , Can I pair my ipod so it plays music through the speakers ?

5) Any info about the suspension recalls ?

thanks in advance

Guess you probably know this already but you will need to add the BT phone unit - its pretty easy if you have the colour Nav unit. You cant stream through BT but you could buy the dension GW to do all of this inc playing from USB, Ipod etc.
I had pan roof on my old one, it was fine but the rear one used to stick open a little - just the rubber.

There is a data sticker with PR codes usually on the service log book, my A6 also has one in the spare wheel well... which if you enter details here Link:- PlanetVAG.com - VW & Audi PR Code Search you can get some of the factory fitted options ...

I have also used this to get a fuller PR code list of my car (150+) Link:- # VAG Cars Explorer - VIN Search Tool - VW * Audi * Seat * Skoda

That site is French but if you paste codes into decoder you will have in English ...

There is Audi music interface (AMI) which can be retrofitted, it will allow USB Stick, USB HDD, iPod/iPhone , etc ,etc ...
