    Hello Phil, Thanks for being in touch. Not wanting to be unhelpful, but the answer to your very valid concerns rests with the supplying dealer, and obviously must be covered by the warranty. If this were mine, I would be booking this is for investigation and asking for a Covid-acceptable road run to demonstrate the issue. Perhaps you would be kind enough to come back to the forum to let us know how you get on. Kind regards, Gareth.

    Hoping someone can help iv bought a 2007 a3 tdi been fine for first two weeks now today as I was driving along it seemed to drop the turbo, I drove to a carpark turned turned it off and restarted it now its fine. It didn't over heat or lose and oil or water.. Can anybody help and hopefully not tell me the turbo is knackered 😕😕 as I don't know how I'd stand as iv only owned it a couple weeks but bought it privately..... Thanks
  7. Good luck and do let us know what you find.
  8. Hello Anthony, The all important question here is - who serviced the car for you ? Audi were/are still recommending the use of Quantum Longlife 3 where vehicles are serviced on the Longlife schedule. GTX? As a matter of interest, what brand of oil filter ( and air and pollen filter) has been used? Kind regards, Gareth.
  9. It’s with a heathy heart the time has come to sell my pride and joy due to our new arrival, I have owned the car for a year and a half and loved every minute, it’s a hell of a car for the money considering new it was 58k! Has the usual S6 refinements heated Recaro half leather and alcantara seats, Bose sound system and 6 disc changer, has the optional extra carbon fibre inserts, dual climate control, 335bhp 4.2l V8 coupled with the legendary Quattro system and combined makes the car very nippy coming out the corners even know it’s a family wagon it surprises a lot of people, the car has loads of service history and has been very well looked after and cared for, pervious owner had a RS6 steering wheel fitted (do have the original to go with the car) and a stainless steel cat back exhaust system which I my say sounds epic! With in the time iv owed the car iv done the following work. New battery Front discs Brembo pads all round Both front window regulators Both front door latches Headlight levelling sensor NGK iridium spark plugs K n N panel filter Wheels acid dipped and painted ( couple of paint chips now sadly but nothing a touch up pen won’t sort ) 4 New Toyo Proxes sport tyres done no more than 150miles! Also have a fair few spares to go with the car at the right price! Being registered in 2000 this means that it falls short of the higher car tax bracket too so only £270 a year rather than the £330 Over all the car is in great condition especially being nearly 21 years old but like any old car there is the odd car park ding, the private plate on the car will come with as it means nothing to me but it’s been valued at £400 if you don’t like it but personally it puts a special touch to such a iconic luxury car that is only going up in value, very occasionally the car will miss fire for a couple of seconds then clears so I plugged the car into vag com and the code it throws up is 17549 - Load Calculation Cross Check: Implausible Value intermittent. Which could be a manifold vacuum line leak or a failing maf sensor so either way a cheap n easy fix for someone, I just don’t have the time to do it my self before selling the car with having a new born to look after, this in mind iv price the car accordingly to current market value and the fault so if you want to own a clean tidy future classic at a fair price look no further. £2850 ovno Mike 07531300434
  10. Hi, my Audi S3 doesn’t have puddle lights, but instead has a plastic part where they should be. if I popped the plastic bit out, would it have the wires to install the puddle lights into? thanks
  11. Last week
  12. Hi there, My wife just bought a 2018 A1 S Line TDI. Nice car. It came with the yellow grommet AMI cable and has the AMI port in the glove box. I've got phones connected fine via Bluetooth but wanted to try out the AMI cable too and perhaps have a 2nd external source connected. When I connect my iPhone via the AMI cable the dash says "not supported". The cable has a lightning connector - what am I missing?
  13. I’m looking for the wood trims and ashtray, and gear stick surround for the convertible, been looking for some time and they seem so difficult to find.....
  14. So yet another sensor gone. Mine has 26k on the clock 2007 A4. The sensor came on in June and stayed on for a few days whilst I was away so unable to take it back to the dealer I bought it from. When I booked it they couldn’t see me for a week, during which time the fault self rectified and the warning stopped. I took it in to the dealer( not an Audi main dealership) they plugged it into the diagnostic computer and said that there were no faults recorded. He said the sensor may have got wet when the car was pressure washed and not to worry, just bring it back if it comes back on. About a month later and 1 week after the 6 month warranty it comes back on! I needed the car for work so drove it back and forward to work having no idea that this sensor fault was going to cause significant damage to other parts of the braking system. I took the car into my mechanic last week who repl@ced the sensor for £100 but has suggested I try and get the rest of the work done by goodwill at Audi or the garage I bought it from as the servo now neeeds replaced at an estimated cost of £500-£600! this is a known fault and there should be a recall of these cars if it is a fault with any part of the braking system.

  16. Does anyone know if it’s possible to convert the main display screen on a 2014 Q7 so that it shows various apps from my iphone (mainly google maps). The integrated Audi satnav is poor. I’m sure newer models come with superior systems, but is there a workaround? Many thanks in advance! James
  17. Hello to All: I have a 2013 Audi S7. The car has had an easy life. It has always been garage kept and never sat out side over a night. The car has only 35,000 miles on it. I special ordered the car in 2012. Several days ago when I went drive the car I noticed that the odometer number has now been replaced with the letters "DEF" The trip odometer now displays ........ I took the car to the Audi Dealer and had it scanned. The scan test results are that the dash display is defective and needs replaced. The car needs to be reprogrammed. The estimated bill is approximately $2,000.00 I am also told that the car will not pass inspection until this dash panel is replaced. Has anyone else had to have an instrument panel replaced because the odometer readout failed?
  18. Hi all, So I have an A4 S-line 2005 1.9 TDI which I've had only a short time. Recently, a whining noise has developed which seems to be coming from the box itself. The whining is in time with the engine speed in all gears, but not present when the clutch is depressed. Very recently, 4th gear seems to pop out almost all the time while driving. I have changed the oil & I've made sure there was plenty in it. I think it has been leaking some oil from there & surely over time it has done some damage to it. My questions are - if I was to get a second hand one from the same model/year, would it be a straight forward swap out or would there be more involved? I've heard of a 6 speed conversion - does this involve a lot of extra work? Do any of the previous generation boxes fit (such as the B6)? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Chris.
  19. Hi all, My name is Chris. I'm new to the Audi scene. I've purchased an A4 B7 recently & I'm looking forward to going through this forum to find out some guides/tips with current issues. Hopefully, over time, I'll be able to help out others as well. 😎
  20. Does anyone know what is missing from this tray please?

  23. For anyone stuck with this problem in the future and come across this thread as i did.. I fixed mine today. Blocked heater matrix, i removed the two pipes coming out the car behind the engine at the nearest clips, (very fiddly and dificult to get to but got there in the end) flushed in through the outlet pipe using a garden hose, let some rad flush sit in it then flushed with hose again, refilled coolant and put back together. (Replaced the spring clips with jubilee clips, just easier to get back on) And now heaters working perfectly. The is a helpful video on youtube if you get stuck.
  24. Hi gents Having purchased a dash cam and hard wire kit, I've tried to install today but failed miserably! Despite googling forever, i cant seem to find the correct fuse to use so the dash cam remains permanently on! Can anyone help?
  25. Hello Nellie, Blinking heck, now you tell me after I have written all that! Only joking. Make sure you read the small print, and dare I say, the large print in your case. Small print contains large detail. Kind regards, Gareth.
