  1. I don't agree with the service intervals that Audi recommend, 11,000 miles between oil changes, should just about get you out of the warranty period. I wouldn't mind an A8 around the 2009 / 11 period but the mileage is getting a little high at that age. If I traded my 2009 A6 C6 Avant in for one, I would never get what it's worth to me. It's a genuine 42,000 miles from new and the longest it's ever gone between oil changes is 4,000 once, usually around the 2,000 mile mark, oil is cheap enough to change it yearly. Always garaged out of the sun and rain. I purchased it from Stafford Audi.
  2. They are OK, it's just a matter of preference.
  3. Try claybaring your windscreen to get rid of all the MUCK and diesel fumes. Also wipe your blades with carb cleaner.
  4. My indicators flash when locking / unlocking.
  5. HAHA. Yes Steve, great on the old trick, not so good with the new tricks. You would know what I mean if you saw me trying to use a mobile phone Useless with new technology.
  6. If metalic paint, I was given a good tip once. If you put the base coat on and then the clear lacquer you end up with the touch up area standing proud of the rest of the bodywork and can't flatten it down. But if you mix the base coat and clear lacquer togeather it can be wet sanded so you cant notice it.
  7. No such thing I'm afraid. I fitted LED bulbs in my A6 Avant and lived with the warning lights for years. The warning only came on when starting the car and stayed on until I turned the fogs on, then the warning lights go out. Just recently I have fitted a connector with a resister in it to stop the warning lights coming on. The resistors get very hot so best screwed to the metal bumper rail. I fitted these bulbs And these leads.
  8. Very nice. Nicest grill Audi did, so much so I fitted one to my S-line Avant.
  9. When Should Audi A1 timing chain be replaced? Unless there is a specific fault, the timing chain should be replaced between 80,000 and 120,000 miles.
  10. Looks like it's a chain.
  11. I fitted Black View cameras front and rear in 2012 after I had someone rear end me. I paid £90 each for them. https://blackvueuk.co.uk/
  12. I have had my A6 s-line Avant for 13 years, never any problems with the leather summer or winter.
  13. Just wait till next mot due in January to see it gets a clean bill of health with no advisories?
  15. It looks like a urinal. 🤣
  16. This one any good ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274034472357?hash=item3fcdba35a5:g:Dw0AAOSw8fddk6-b or this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255573036135?hash=item3b81570c67:g:zWUAAOSwP6dioHiK
  17. Check these videos out. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=audi+cruise+controle+in+1mph+increments+
  18. I don't know how to do it but it must be possible because my A6 goes up or down in 1mph increments. Look at this
