  8. Nice! Welcome to the Forum
  9. Hi Louisa Chances are that the scan tool is not set to communicate with the OBD which is running only on the K Line (early diagnostics)....you may have the option to switch to this line only and it will work okay. I would check the crankshaft sensor is putting a signal out if not then change it and see how you get on

  12. My opinion is that if the tyre is compromised in any way then it has the potential of failing at speed which is a grave concern. If the car was being used locally and guaranteed to be kerbed in daily use then I may extend the usage of it as long as it was never taken at speed. However, you would have to consider the legal aspect of the damaged tyre and if any accident occurred (through your own fault or not) the first thing the insurance assessor will check is the tyres and if unfit for road use then the insurance claim could be void.
  13. Hi Gareth, Steve. Unfortunately, we as a club don't have any influence with tyre manufacturers, let alone vehicle manufacturers and as such pretty much zero authority in a case of warranty or product recall. The posts obviously highlight a trend with poor quality tyres (although having said that I run Dunlop tyres on my motorbike and my BMW Z3 and have no issues whatsoever over the years and trust the grip implicitly). Although I have seen this on a few different occasions and each were on different tyre brands (Metzeler comes to mind where the whole casing split around the sidewall but this was definitely down to age and inactivity). However, there are bad batches of tyres that come through into the market, Pirelli had an issue with their P4 tyre which actually stripped the whole tread from the casing where it wasn't bonded properly. The most worrying trend is Chinese manufactured tyres ("ditch-finders" as they are affectionately known) being actively sold through major tyre retailers and these are lethal, having zero grip, going out of shape, and extremely noisy. In the case of the Dunlop tyres splitting, I could only recommend the check the condition and manufacture date and take it directly to the tyre companies that supplied them (if fitted since new) or if occurring on an new Audi then to take it back to the supplying dealership. Again, it is worth checking the country of manufacture and any batch numbers to see if there is any common theme here. If we can categorically find a recurring theme then it would be worth collating the information to forward to the relevant tyre manufacturer to raise awareness of the issue.
  14. The RS models from Audi Sport GmbH are the dynamic spearheads of their respective product lines. They have a strong character that consists of distinct design differentiation, full everyday usability, effortless top performance, and a thrilling driving experience. This results from a relentless focus on minute details by the designers and development and test engineers, and it is perfected over numerous test drives around the world. This is a behind-the-scenes look at development work. 50a86966-db0c-4d2e-aec1-a236804321e8.mp4
  15. lol....sounds like it is doing the right thing though, as long as it winds and not overwinds the watch movement. What watches do you have?
