  1. Hi Robert, I have a 2017 A4 Allroad, i have been looking for a spacesaver wheel as well, but have yet to purchase one, you will have to be aware that any spacesaver you buy, will be compatable with revolutions per mile as the wheels fitted to the car,other wise, if the difference is too great, it may damage the quattro system. here is a list of tyre sizes & revolutions per mile( the first one should be the tyre size fitted to your car) 245/45 R 18.=756.3 revs per mile. 225/55 R 17.=754.5.revs per mile. the spare that comes with the car, should be size, 175/55 R19,which
  2. Hi, You will be able to swap the wheels front to back no problem, i am now on my 12th audi a4, & over the years have swapped the wheels round more times than i can remember. the only thing that you will probably have to do, is to reset the tyre pressure values on the computer, after you swap the wheels, give the car a run for 2/3 miles, & see if anything comes up requiring you to do this, hope this helps. Brian.
  3. I can't get my head round why anybody would buy a used car without seeing it first. thats just my opinion.
  4. Hi, That's interesting, as a couple of years ago, i was in my friends garage, & he showed me 2 fuel filters, one from his own car, (a vw golf diesel) & one from a taxi, ( another diesel) which they had just serviced, the contents of the filter from the taxi was nearly black in colour, where as the filter from the golf was quite clear, the taxi had always filled up at Tesco's, but my friend always went to Shell, Esso, or BP to fillup. I have owned vw & Audi cars for the past 30 years, & have always avoided Tesco's etc. to date i have had no fuel
  5. Hi Karen, I think the first thing to do is to check the brake pad thickness, to see if they are worn down to metal to metal, a visual check of the brake disc will let you see if this is the case, i think you will find that brake issues are not covered under warranty. another check to do, is to jack the car up, and rotate a wheel at a time, if you are getting a grating noise, this would indicate a problem with the brake caliper sticking. hope this helps.
  6. Hi, You could possibly try and drill the head off the damaged screw if you are carefull.
  7. Hi Amanda, I have an Audi A4 Allroad B9 2017 with leather seats, they are heated. the heated seat icons are each side of the rotary dials, just press the icon & the seat will heat up , to decrease the heat in stages just keep pressing the icon (3 stages of heat)
  8. Hi, I have an A4 Allroad 2017 with the same engine, mine has only done 18,000 miles as yet, but i will be changing the air filter myself when the time comes, there seems to be more things to remove when changing the filter on this engine, the best advice i can give, is to just take your time, and don't break any clips etc. i have always maintained all my Audi's myself, after all, if an audi mechanic can change it i'm sure you will be able to, best of luck. Brian.
  9. Hi, I am on my 12th Audi at the moment, they have all been A4s, except for one A3, the last 7 have all been Avant's, my last two Avants have both been Allroads & i can't praise them enough, my latest one, a 2017 model, B9. the one i have at the moment is a joy to drive, with the 190 tdi engine, & 7 speed S Tronic gearbox. coupled with the extra ride height, it makes a great all round car i would recommend one to anybody.
  10. Hi, i have a Audi A4 Allroad B9 2017, I fitted mudflaps myself, it is a simple job best take the wheels off to do it properly. i used genuine Audi flaps.
