    @rasA4 , Hey, fella, how are you doing? It's been years since we were both on the B5 forum. So you've finally found something to replace that lovely 2.4SE. The new one looks a cracker; hope you enjoy it. :)

    On my b5 I had a valet key wallet key and 2 remotes. As this is all keyless I have 2 keys How many keys do you get when you buy a new Audi?

    Check out the storage box in the rear seat folding armrest for the first aid kit. That’s where it is in my B8.

    after 2 days of ownership things i don't like so much
    1. storage is also lacking agreed the door pockets are a lot better, however i miss my little cubby hole on the right side
    2. Don't like the idea of the open armrest.
    3. i would have thought the apple car play would work without plugging the usb lightning cable (bit annoying as i left my phone in the armrest)
    i believe if i had wireless charging phone the car would remind me to take my phone??


    things i do love about the car
    1. B&O system coupled with amazon music app through MMI!!
    2. the way the car feels light on its feet so to speak but still very secure
    3. the whole interior

    You cannot have wireless apple carplay because only bmw have the sole licencing from apple to provide it. Which I believe you have to pay a subscription for anyway...

    Been a few days now
    Things I would like to the car these I believe are easy mods on VCDS?
    1. Needle sweep
    2. Enable visual rear parking aid

    Are there any other simple ‘hidden’ mods?

    Things in the future
    1. Add front parking sensors
    2. Folding mirrors

    Would also like Hill hold assist does this mean the whole centre console out jobby?

    Yes very normal to hear systems gradually switching off, you may also hear the electric water pump running cooling down the turbo bearings after a fast drive.

    I think it only works if you have the phone box and charging wirelessly?

    Yes I thought so saw something last night on audiworld. Then I believe you can’t use Apple play as you need to plug in USB?

    Might have to look at using SD however won’t be able to use amazon prime via amazon music app.
