    Hi Rich No not heard of this one. This year we have attended Simply Audi at Beaulieu and the AITP last weekend. I am sure for next year we could get some interest. although looking the date it could get in the way of peoples holidays. I am up to going as it would be reasonable close. Do you know the date for 2020?

    Thank you for your response Gareth - I think you got the source of my dilemma right - I was really looking for some comfort blanket of reassurance 😉 Sometimes a good discussion can help with the "sat on the fence" position as it can gently prod you in one way or another.. What was not making it easy was that I could not see any up-to-date photos showing what the cloth interior would look like in real life ( you can hardly rely on the 3d rendered images on the Audi site) and I was also not sure if the puny sound from the demonstrator speakers was a result of these not being yet bedded in.. In the end I went with the leather option (Atlas beige) rather than the comfort and sound package - time will tell if I will be happy with my decision Thanks Martin

    Hi all I have just purchased my first Audi after what seems a life time of VW,s. Believe it or not I was about to buy a Golf R cabriolet when I spotted the A5 on Ebay and I just had to have it. I'm not picking her up till Wednesday so will upload some pics and info as soon as I can. Look forward to contributing and picking some brains as I have done on the My Tiguan and EOS forums in the past. Mick

    Hi Gareth & Cliff, Many thanks for your replies. Just an update on things, the reason why I was trying to take the battery off was due to the fact that I'd tried a jump start yesterday but had no joy (albeit I only tried for a couple of minutes) plus I was too far away from my flat to be able to charge it whilst attached, hence why I thought I might be able to just whip it off and do a main charge indoors. In the past I've flattened the battery by leaving the dashcam plugged in overnight during cold periods but normally I could open the car with the key fob, the ignition lights would come on, but just get the flickering when you try to fire up the engine cold, but this time I had none of that. Good news is that I was able to do a prolonged jump start this morning (ie leaving it charging for about 10 minutes) and although I had disconnected and reconnected the battery a few times last night, apart from the date and time, nothing else had visibly reset (e.g radio) so I'm back in business. Interestingly what I did notice is that initially when I realised I'd drained the battery, I had zero response from the car (had to unlock drivers door manually, no dash display or interior light and completely dead when ignition key turned) which made me think the battery was knackered this time, especially when having tried a quick jump start yesterday it was still fully unresponsive. This morning however, as soon as I reconnected to the battery terminals with a 2nd jump start attempt, the alarm immediately went off (this time with flashing indicators), so disabled that via the key fob and when I re-open the drivers door to my surprise the mileage and time was now showing on the dash plus the interior light came on and I could turn on the radio, none of which was possible when I did the jump start yesterday (so behaving like it has done in the past when the battery was flat from leaving the dashcam plugged in overnight) It's almost as though it had provisionally gone into some kind of power hibernation that it only was woken out of after I'd done the multiple disconnect / reconnect last night that had triggered the alarm, then jumped it for a second time this morning (the only way I can describe it!) Very confusing, but at least I'm all good now and also learned that getting zero response from a flat battery doesn't necessarily mean it's completely knackered! Now it's time to get the new battery sent back that arrived this morning :') ! Cheers, Dave

    Hi Gareth thanks for the reply it was my sons car and he ran it for over a year with low temp readings it sometimes got to 90 similar to yours but mainly around the quarter mark. i have the car now and thought i would change the thermostat yesterday it now reaches operating temp but with those issues i described .I have only done about 30 miles so far so i will try some redex and give it a blast. i took plug 1 and 4 out to have a look at them and they were sooty not a nice brown colour (didnt take 2 and 3 out yet as they are a pain to get to) many thanks dave

    Hello Debbie, As far as I can see, breakdown cover (which is in fact an insurance based cover) understandably varies as much as quotations for your normal car insurance - even when you compare apparent like for like cover. Personally, I would give up trying to understand why, and simply follow Trevor’s advice and first decide the level of cover which suits your needs. Basic cover would say simply cover you for roadside assistance, then you move on to recovery add-on options - which I’m sure you are aware of. To my mind, it’s the limitations of recovery option which is all important.Some will just transport the vehicle to the nearest garage, leaving it at the mercy of trying to control its repair from afar. Others will transport you and the vehicle to a place of your choice - usually your trusted local garage. One other point I would make is to beware of ‘cheaper entry’ offers which usually come with an automatic renewal. That’s where the sting cuts in! I know RAC do that, and all their business is based on an automatic renewal system. If it were me, I would decide the level of cover you want, and just go with the best deal that comprehensively provides that - having read the all important small print exclusions. Don’t bother to try to work out why A is cheaper than B. Kind regards, Gareth. p.s. Hello Graham. Not sure how long you have been with Autoaid, but as you say, it was based on paying for your breakdown assistance and then claiming the money back. I could be wrong, but I have a feeling you don’t now have to pay and reclaim - they now operate as others do, and sort out and pay for the assistance.

    Hi Debbie I use Autoaid and have never had a problem with them It is like an insurance policy. If you breakdown, you contact them and hey arrange a local firm to come and either fix or recover you. They then reimburse the recovery company for the cost Recommended by Martin Lewis on his website. approx £40 per year

    Hi Debbie....welcome to the Forum Yes, this is the right place for this post. I suppose the best way to buy breakdown cover is to first weigh up what you need...e.g. multicar, european cover, personal cover, homestart, etc. If you don't need any other options than roadside cover and being towed to a garage within 10 miles of where you broke down then that would be the cheapest method. After that, you can bolt on various options and then it becomes quite expensive. You get what you pay for, as the old saying goes!

    Fixed it. It needed a new Pressure relief valve. It's got rid of a few other issues as well. Other symptoms included, car wobbling side to side at a stand still, which got progressively worse. engine on or around 1200 revs after start up first thing, also it would judder a little when setting off in first like it was about to stall for a split second before I got going. Car running mint now. :)
