  3. Thanks for posting an update, so many people never bother. My A6 had terrible grip in the wet, the back end squirrelling side to side under even the slightest acceleration around a corner. I thought I had bought a lemon. It was the mix match tyres causing it. Even though they were plenty legal, the difference in age and tread was enough to throw the balance out. I went for Uniroyal Rainsport 3 tyres on all corners and the car was transformed. You just wouldn’t think that ‘odd’ tyres could make such a difference to handling but with all the clever electronics these days they seem to get incorrect signals and try to compensate through diffs etc causing bad handling. Well, this is what I have been led to believe. I am pleased your A5 is sorted. A lovely car!!
  4. Thanks for your reply Silver Rocket. When I first enquired about my Audi I was told that the car had only 1 key also. Part of the 'deal' was that the dealer got the key at trade price on my behalf, thus saving me around £50. I've just had the new key coded at Sheffield Audi at a cost of £99. Since my first post about the SD card, the dealer has ordered me a new SD card from Audi at his expense. We've yet to discuss who's gonna cover the cost of having that coded in! There's a 2 week delay on it arriving from Germany!
  5. Hi Alex Yes I do, 395 for the lot paid over a grand but in garage as won't fit in new car. Great tyres, amazing in snow and very wet conditions, you can drive where others do not dare and the quattro will get you anywhere. Based in Sittingbourne ba@proventis.co.uk
  6. Yesterday
  7. Hi well finally got car sorted turned out it was a mismatch of front tyres they changed them for back ones and car is perfect very happy but even happier as garage are going to replace all tyres free of charge as a good will gesture the difference is amazing can't wait to get new tyres fitted
  8. I test drove a 2016 A4 at Big Motoring World on Sunday. When I asked about both the SD Card and second key, I was told that if they had them they were kept at their collection centre but they made no guarantees that they were present and they had no mechanism in place to check. If I bought the car, the first time I would know if it had both keys and sat nav card would have been when I collected it. I wasn't prepared to take a £15k gamble and bought from a Main Dealer on Monday. £900 pounds more, but with all the Audi used car benefits - Warranty, road side assistance etc and both keys and SD Card.
  9. Check the air conditioning/climate control does what it is supposed to do and the central locking (my passenger door wouldn't unlock via the fob on 2 clicks and would only open from the inside when I collected car so dealer had to sort). Really hope the car you are looking at ticks all the boxes!
  10. Hi Steve, I don't actually have my Audi yet, it's to be delivered next month but I tried what you were saying on my Mini Countryman. With auto lights switched on but the lights not on if I switch the rear fog lights on nothing happens but if I switch the front fog lights on the front fog lights and the head / tail lights come on. this seems a bit weird to me I would have thought the rear fog lights were more important than the front fog lights. Not sure that this answers your question though.
  11. I have my first Audi Q3 2019. It has start stop technology, my question is simple, does all the starting and stopping of the engine harm the engine itself??

  14. Hi On my 12 month old A8 is in the dealership as the active cruise control has stopped working.i am being told it is a know software issue on A8, A7 and A6 cars and that Audi have no solution but working on an update, no date given and been known for more than 2 months Anybody know anything about this?
  15. Hi Guys, Newbie here. I have a 2006 A6 3.0Tdi quattro LHD with c.95k. I have a question about the adaptive air suspension and whether I have a problem or not. When I leave the car sitting for a day or two I notice that the car seems to be sitting 'down' with no distance between the wheel arch and the tyre. When I start the car and point to comfort mode the car lifts and seems like its in the correct position. My question : Is this normal ? Is there a way of programming the vehicle to sit in comfort mode. The car hadn't been driven in about 4 months. Thanks for your assistance and guidance TS
  16. Hi all I have been looking for a Daytona Grey R8 but I keep missing out. I’ve been offered a black one with good spec but wondered if any of you have a black one near Glasgow so I could have a quick look? I believe the pictures don’t do them justice but slightly worried about saying yes without looking first. Pretty sure if I go all the way down south I will say yes anyway but not sure it’s what I want as I had my heart set on a grey one. Thank you. Lorna
  17. Hi all, I have a 2011 A4 Technik with mmi 3g dvd nav.. I need to know wher I can get a map update from and can I use an sd card for it? Thanks in advance
  18. Hi, do you still have the tyres for sale? If so, how much are you hoping for? Kind Regards Alex
  19. Hey Dan, Thanks for taking the time to get back to me. Yeah I was very unlucky I just missed out on one at the weekend. I'm sure another will come up soon. But as you say I'm finding it hard to find another at the moment. Cheers Ben
  20. Hi mate, thanks a lot.I was looking at the genuine Audi one but I wasn’t too sure. I’ll get one of these.Thanks 👍🏻
  21. Yeah I agree, rubbish paying out so much for same problem. TBH these engines start quite well without even using the glow plugs so I would rule them out for now. Last thing you could do yourself is actually clamp the fuel return hose as soon as you stop the engine. Then take this off before cold starting the next day. This should help rule out fuel running back to tank. If not as Magnet (this chap should be on every forum!!) suggests injector seals could well be the cause, if not it’s the primary pump (in the tank), maybe faulty injector loom or faulty tandem pump. All these things should be testable by a diesel specialist however, though maybe not the injector seals. In the mean time put an injector cleaner in the tank, something like millers. This will help somewhat plus you will get the money back in better economy.
  22. Hi Benny, I think part of the reason there are no replies is because you have chosen a very specific car. I had a quick look myself and could not find one car matching your desires. What a lovely car BtW. Best of luck with your hunt and hopefully one comes available soon.
  23. Hi Paul, haven't had to use one for a while (luckily) but the thicker the better imho. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Car-Seat-Protector-Child-Seats/dp/B073PJHPGK/ref=asc_df_B073PJHPGK/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310577373001&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11194478283789367214&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9041110&hvtargid=aud-545671390501:pla-422795747729&psc=1 I stopped using a booster seat in the car about a year ago but got something like the above ages ago when first child was a baby and it lasted till last year - about 14yrs in total. The one I used was a thick rubber and went in several different cars with both leather and cloth seats, and never left a mark. Hope that helps M.
  24. Last week
  25. Hey Ho!!! That's us done for ten days or do! Quick race down to a recycling spot near Stratford, the want to chuck oversize tree waste shredding a into a machine to resize them. I look at the pile and say, "this type of machine is for tree waste and so on, that stuff is gritty and abrasive so your running cost are higher than average. Consider a shredder, it costs more to buy but may be a more practical answer!". I'm told by an expert on a huge salary that they need cheap but ours ain't right. This guy is on twice what I get paid and tells me that he is an expert. Most projects that he has been involved with only survived on handouts as they weren't viable! A quick trip to the office to check in/out then my day is done! Off to buy Caz a present then home to pack blah blah blah! Wicked!!! I got some emails to do but CBA! I'll take the laptop on holiday and do that in a day or two! I got a couple of cases of people not doing what they agreed to do or changing tack that I find infuriating!!! Grrr.
  26. Hi Sohail I have literally driven my car to my friends garage with the same issue I had the connector cleaned out it worked for about week or two then tonight decide to give me issues again. My mechanic is going to replace the coolant control valve unit. The part number he gave me is 4h0121671d coolant valve. But if you can wait tomorrow he will have my car done and I can confirm if this is the exact part. Not sure if its going to be a different part number to your car because mine is the audi a6 3.0Tdi 8 speed multitronic.
