    I have a 1 month old A7 and twice now the presense has kicked in at 30mph with no cars around me. Scared the **** out of me. It’s left me a very nervous driver just waiting for it to happen again. Got it booked in the the local main dealer next week.
    Anyone else had any issues?

    From memory the level of sensitivity can be set via the settings menu - maybe its set too high?
    Might be wrong but never had the issue

    I've got the sensitivity set to low so can't do much else about it I don't think. Hopefully Audi can find a fault to rectify.

    Just goes to show how frustrating it will be when the AI takes over! My front pre sense has never kicked in but the rear when reversing just slams on the anchors, real jolt to the neck!

    Its never done it in my S5 but my Golf R did it a few times - it is very scary. Hopefully they can do something with it.

    Occassionally mine kicks in, but not for cars either, pedestrians, fences and hedges. You might find it kicks in the ping but doesn't actually do anything...

    Yep, mine does it, same place, same road every week.
    No cars or people nearby.
    Road is slightly curved to the right, and there is a lamp post on the left opposite the apex of the curve - that’s the only thing I can narrow it down to.

    Does it kick in the ABS or just flash up on the dash?

    @Wippers - it flashes and beeps on the Dash, and vibrates through the accelerator pedal.

    At least the brakes don’t kick like mine do.
    Taken it to Audi yesterday who have adjusted something in the software (although not sure what). Let’s see what happens.
