    Truthfully I can't remember the price of a full service as it was some years ago. My advice would be to ring round your local Audi dealers to compare quotes. As some dealers may have offers on servicing where's others won't. Cheers Steve

    Hi Gareth, there is a limit to the frequency of the Speed Awareness courses. Typically, you are only allowed them every three years, otherwise you get points and a fine. They are usually given to people for minor transgressions and not big offences. All of my misdemeaners are in the order of 36 in a 30 in a rural setting, 48 in a forty and 58 in a 60 and towing. I have got to the point that I have had 9 points on my licence - I'm not proud of that fact but it is a hazard of having to drive an awful lot and having too many other things going on in my work life which means your concentration can drift....That and being !Removed! unlucky at times! I got told on one thing that on the day I was done, only three cameras out of 150, were being used in that county. To be fair, they don't want to catch people speeding and make money from it but stop people from speeding and save money in accident costs etc. Since I got this Ranger, I use cruise control and speed limiter more often and even use the selective gearbox occasionally! Caz away for the 03:30 to 15:30 shift - back now and very tired and demoralised. She's having a kip.... After she had gone to bed, I re-read the survey and thought about this. I think the surveyor was a tad keen on some points and given a red mark on some points that can be explained or quantified better. If the lead pipe in the water system was really bad for you, the Severn Trent would have replaced it years ago for example. Caz and I will talk through some of the points, send it to the Agents with a letter saying that unless a few things are done, we will back out but accept other things as they are. If the venders really want to sell, then they will get a quote for it and then see if it is in £00's or £000's and make a judgemnent call. After all, they had rented it out for years and the letting agent would have insisted that things were right! I collected a loan chipper from a dealer this morning so I can go and do a bit of tree work tomorrow at the house of Caz's daughter's SO. That and some housework were the order of the day - even fitted a twin socket in the kitchen which already has a pair of USB sockets in it. I got fed up with a kettle that was unplugged for a phone and a toaster that was swapped for a tablet! I noted that the new tyres fitted to the Ranger hum more than the previous but it feels more planted and less squidgy! Best part of £800 for the four and a tracking check but the last Goodrich M&S tyres did over 80K!

    The concern is, if an MOT tester finds the dpf is false then I suspect you could end up with big fines. Plus I suspect this would void your insurance. Cheers Steve

    If power returns when you move the battery, either there is a poor terminal connection or the battery is defective. All the other faults may or may not be related to each other, but have nothing to do with the battery. The lack of error codes tells you nothing, they are in any case poor indicators of faults even when a code is generated, so I suggest you get it tested by a specialist auto electrician.

    Just went to the Audi UK website and checked with their online tool. Definitely not affected - see screenshot attached. Not sure of previous owner other than it's a one owner, FSH, etc. I think it may be an ex-contract hire vehicle as I am doing a similar deal as a PCP which I'll hand back after the contract period.

    Hi Guys Sorted (I think) I hope the information below will help others. original fault was that my Audi A7 2011 started changing gears itself, changing from Drive to Sports mode with no demand from myself, quite dangerous. On the dash I had the message "Gearbox Fault you can continue driving" Called out the AA, who plugged in the computer and could see 2 gearbox faults but could not identify what they were, advised me to take to a garage. Took it to the local Audi main dealer who eventually found fluid in the main electrical connector on the gearbox ECU and was charged £60 for the diagnosis. Quoted just over £3k to replace the gearbox ECU and wiring harness. At this point I decided to look into it myself. Took it to a friends garage and up on the ramp. removed the gearbox connector and yes there was the fluid inside the connector. Here's a picture from the web, but looks identical The fluid was obviously coolant from the colour and sweet taste (don't recommend tasting though..) So far so good, but how did it get there??? Answer - From the Coolant control valve which is about 12" away and along the same loom.( My issue was from the coolant control valve, but it could have been another valve or sensor) It is apparently a common fault with Audi's and an issue known to Audi- There is a Technical service bulletin out on this TSB# 2033806/7 The TSB is well worth a read. Without getting too techie, The coolant control valve starts leaking fluid through the electrical connection point, this fluid then travels down through the harness through a process called "capillary effect" or "Wicking" and eventually gets to the gearbox electrical connector and causes mayhem to the CAN signals which control the gear selection process. In my case, we used an airline to blow the coolant out of the gearbox connector (carefully on the gearbox end) then sprayed the connector with electrical contactor spray and reconnected the connector. On testing the car, the error message has gone and no more random gear changing. VCDS does not show any errors now. I have a new Coolant control valve being fitted tomorrow ( £130 from Audi or £30 from ebay) If the new valve is not fitted, the problem will just come back in the future. Here's the kicker, had I gone with the Audi main dealer quote, a new harness and gearbox ECU for £3k, the quote did not include a new coolant control valve, therefore I would have been £3k poorer and would have received a "temporary fix" as the valve would have continued to leak and eventually find it's way to the gearbox ECU connector again. In the end it cost around £250 to get sorted. Sorry for the long write up, I hope it helps others.

    Hi Having completed a retro armrest mod to my first A1 I can say it's a reasonably easy job as long as you follow a few guidelines in the link below. I would recommend buying the genuine Audi armrest and not to bother with the eBay cheap imports. Stoke Audi Parts were always very helpful and will deliver. The instructions below are worth reading. One extra piece of advice is to tape each screw to the screwdriver when you come to secure the main armrest bracket to the floor pan. If you don't and they fall off and drop down the gap, you'll never find them. http://www.a1-forum.co.uk/a1forum/viewtopic.php?t=2324 Good luck
