Can we disconnect our batteries on these cars and re-connect them days or weeks later without any problems or coding required?

I know when you swop a battery for a new one it needs to be coded to the car but just wondering if we get a second lockdown is this an option for saving my battery (no power to lockup).

Thanks.

Just get a CTEK charger and leave it connected.

I'll try and remember to give Audi a call next week see if they can advise.

You’ll just have to set up date and time i imagine.

Coding isn’t something the car will forget.

Ok great, after the last lockdown my battery died and it cost me £500 to get the car going again, AA membership, AA call-out and a new battery. Didn't want to have to do that again in a few months time if we get locked down again.

Has anyone got a HG Motorsports intake pipe and uprated panel filter on their pfl and how is it? What difference does it make sound and performance wise?
Cheers.

I found the car was much stronger 3500 upwards it pulled much better.
That’s good to hear! I’ve just bought one now brand new direct from them, also put a bmc filter in the other day. Nice to hear it makes a noticeable difference, any much to sound?
