    Great thread! Did you ever manage to find a better colour match for the aluminium vinyl wrap on the front fog trim?

    No I ended up covering the original with the same vinyl so you’d be hard pushed to notice.

    Not quite a small improvement - but more of a small frustration, my car was keyed today.

    Bit hard to say how much the damage will cost but with this in mind, the cost goes up because of my wrap. Now a new wrap is being toyed with, yellow or green though.

    Was parking up the other day against a very scary kerb on drivers side and thought it would be helpful if you could dip the drivers side mirror same as the passenger side, so thought I’d have a go at coding it to do this, result it works !!!

    Coding done with OBDeleven
    Drivers control module 42

    Mirror_lowering_with_rear_gear_change >activate

    Positioning_memory_with_rear_gear > activate

    Another niggle is when my other half is in the passenger seat she likes it moved forward slightly, but when coming out of a junction when I’m driving in my own the seat obscure’s my view.
    I coded move passenger seat from drivers side using MMI, but it’s a massive faff moving it back all the time, so I wondered about coding easy entry to passenger side.
    Now when passenger gets out the seat moves back out of the way and stays there until they get back in and close door, then it moves forwards a few inches.

    Coding again using OBDeleven
    Passenger control unit 06

    Easy_entry_front > activate
    Enabling_easyentry_front_seat_by_bcm > activate

    Two very small improvements that make things better :)

    Excellent mods. I take it you need memory seat?

    I think you can code the easy entry to work without memory button
    By coding store settings on key in MMI
    I had this working before I fitted and wired memory buttons so it moved seat/mirrors depending what key you used, and the easy entry started working at the same time, before this it did nothing.
    As for the mirror dip I think it only works on folding mirrors.

    Was it an easy mod to add the memory seats? I know the S5 already has the electric seats. Assume new door cards for the buttons etc. Currently my S5 doesn't save the seat position, mirrors etc with my key. My parents A6 does but that also doesn't have memory seats.

    Not sure if it's gone beyond the paint until the wrap comes off, also thrown in a dent into the rear quarter which looks like an elbow.

    Cleaned my car yesterday and the colour still is a beaut, just debating if the green or yellow I want to go would be 'too much' for a 2.0 TDI (albeit stealth)

    My babe of three years has left me, gone to a good home, I hope :)
    I’ve enjoyed my time adding a few extras to her and helping others do the same.
    Thanks for all your support and help over the years and hope I can still help anyone else who’s struggling to figure stuff out.
    I do have a few bits I managed to remove, dimming mirrors, b&o led speaker grills and loads more stuff I’ll be posting in the for sale soon if anyone is interested.

    It was a wrap, in 3m matte dark grey, it's come off now after someone hit me at Christmas.

    It's pretty much the Daytona grey matte Audi did on the RS6 Avant.

    Hi - I am trying to fit this to my 2017 S5 B9 which is fitted with a smokers pack but my local Audi dealership is struggling with the part number for the dual face plate above. The part number on the invoice above is different to the one listed in the invoice and when searching it only shows a central 12V socket. Has anyone successfully sourced the dual usb version in the picture?

    Thanks in advance

    Wasn't that modification done on an A3 as opposed to the A5? Do you actually use the lighter socket? If the answer is no, then I found a completely flush mounting dual USB adapter that plugs into the lighter socket. It doesn't project out very much. And given the OEM rear dual USBs are only for charging, this could be a cheaper / quicker solution.

    In any case, I think the trim piece will be something like 8W0863324A as for the A5.

    So the part is in and it is the right one with the two usb sockets. Can anyone give me a clue as to how to remove the smoking unit and replace it? Do you need to remove the vent and whole panel. If so how is this done?

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you order the part I listed above?

    Yes to get to that trim panel you basically need to remove everything in that area. You'll find instructions for that in the Audi manuals.
