I have had my Audi A3 Edition 1 for a year now so it was due a service, on taking it to the dealership I was told the car had 3 updates due. 2 are hardware recalls and one a software update....the hardware modules were the `service module` and `lane assist/driving assist`.....this is probably the cause for some of the issues regarding error messages, I think Audi need to replace these modules on A3`s built in 2020/21...any newer cars will have these updated modules fitted.....In speaking to the service guy he told me it was normal for cars to get software updates to iron out bugs etc..but in the case of this car the faulty modules will not allow the software to cure these isuues on its own, hence why the hardware needs to be changed. Audi are aware of this issue.
The A3 was Audi`s big hitter yet when it was due to be released Audi got hit with Covid restrictions, they never launched the car properly! now it is considered `old!`...mine still turns heads as it is such a good looking car, hopefully when I get it back it will be fault free, although to be fair its not been that bad, only a few errors that I ignored, I would not have taken the car in if it was not for the service being due, so the updates and repair to the modules is a welcome bonus....if they work!
