  1. Hello everyone I'm new to all this forums thing and thought I would give it a go. Hope you are all well with these unusual situations. Now down to business I'm a kia ceed(2007) 1.4P owner and very happy with it but decided to look into buying an Audi A3 or A4 (2010-2013)and wanted to read your opinions on them. The engines of topic is 1.2-2.0 Tfsi engines. Which is more reliable? Which has better fuel consumption? What things should I be looking at when viewing them any common issues? I read that oil consumption on some of these engines are high. Anyone able to give me a hand and clear some of these things. I'm mainly interested in reliability and to reduce maintenance costs and which model is better. Thanks Akim Kuzmichev
  2. Hi all thought I'd start a thread for funny picture's (Audi related or not) Post some funny stuff here! "Did someone say Audi?"
  3. Hello, this is my first post so I hope I’m in the right place in the forums for this. Basically I’m going to be viewing a 2014 Audi s3 with 31k miles on the clock. It’s failed it’s last MOT due to having no catalytic converters, but I’m told a new one is being installed upon my arrival. What sort of issues/common problems should I be looking out for? What sort of questions should I be asking the dealer? (Dealer is independent). Should I be taking out warranty if I do purchase? thanks.
  4. I have created a complete guide on how to upgrade MMI 2G and 3G to the latest version of the firmware - 5570. The key thing here is that in the tutorial I am showing you how to not brick your Bose AMP in the process. No special tools or VCDS required. If you use the links to download the updates the only thing that you will need is blank CDs. If you have any questions let me know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cajxNC4TGo&t=0s
  5. Hello Hello, I hope everyone had a good Christmas? My friend recently got his TTS tuned with an APR kit (stage 1) and it is very fast. Managing 14mpg though... I made a video on his TTS if anyone wants to check it out? Thomas
  6. Hello everyone, in desperate help as I cannot find it anywhere, I have an Audi a4 b7 with a k04 hybrid conversion. It's has a decat downpipe system on it and need to find a cat downpipe for emissions but haven't had luck finding a K04 downpipe for my car! I cry for help and I'm grateful if anyone can help me!
  7. Hi all. I’m Tom from the Uk 🙂 so I have a 2007 Q7 and I’ve owned it the past 4 years. It owes me nothing and i love the car. Over the years there’s been little gremlins that I haven’t had time to do anything about and to be honest they’re not show stoppers. But, since were all in lock down due to COVID19, I’ve got some time on my hands and wouldn’t mind doing a little DIY on the old bus, if I can. The beast pulls in every gear, full audi service history up till my ownership, which I now fully service every 6k religiously with OEM parts, except the gearbox. I have a specialist friend for that. 160k on the clock and the girl runs smooth! so, the little gremlins that id like to address are as follows. 1) DAB Signal - it’s really poor! More so when there’s something plugged into the 12v cig lighter slot or if the DVD players in the back are on. Is there anything I can do to improve this? 2) Front display TV reception - again really poor! It used to be fine, perhaps something to do with DAB signal too? 3) side lane assist thingy (tells you not to pull out on the motorway if there’s a car coming) - not working and comes up with when button is pressed. It used to work but stopped some time ago. 4) the rear passenger air suspension - is around 20mm lower when the car is parked 5) can I change the set ride height so that the car sits lower than factory without the use of the VAG software? 6) front heated drivers seat heater - temperamental 7) can I somehow retrofit something to connect my phone (iPhone) to the Bluetooth system to play music through the stereo? 😎 little square buttons on door handles. What are they for? Mine are not working at all 9) boot closing - closed 9/10 but it’s always that 1 time I don’t check; is there adjustment to ensure it closes ever time? 10) front side lights. No LED replacements work in these what so ever. Anyone got any suggestions? 11) how difficult is it to remove swirl flaps? One of my motors has fudged itself. Is there a step by step guide? 12) anyone blanked their EGR before? What’s the best kit and will I need to map it out? I think that is all. Massive appreciation to anyone who can assist 🙂
  8. Hi new to this page, I've tried searching round but can't find any page with the same problem. I have a 2008 Audi A3 8P, When I put the window up on the driver side it will go all the way up and then stop because the glass has reached the top but the switch continues to make a clicking noise until i press the button for it to go down lightly. Has anyone fixed this issue before and what was the solution? I'm not sure how the regulator works
  9. Basically my audi a3 2010 black edition mirror not working when I indicator right (drivers side) the light on the mirror not work also the heated mirror not heating and there is no movement in the mirror either but the passenger side mirror is fully functional just wonder what fuses I need to check cant find it in the manual would both mirror be on the same fuse? Maybe I have a faulty connection?if anyone could help would be great thanks
  10. Hey guys, I were driving home from work earlier on when I drove over a nasty hidden pot hole. It went with quite the bang. Just turned my headlights on now and the passengers side dipped beam seems to have dropped leaving a weird line of light in the road as i drive. any advice on how to fix? :) thanks. (I also tried manually adjusting the light with the screwdriver and that did nothing but move it up and down)

  12. Hey Audi Peeps, I hope you are all well and staying safe? I thought I would share a video I made of my friend's Audi A1 1.4 tfsi in 'sport' trim. It is one of the highest specced A1s as it has the auto box, heated seats, xenon head lights, pano roof etc You may enjoy this video? Stay safe, Thomas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCgJej5tbik

  15. Hello everyone. I own a 2015 RS4 Limited Edition, Suzuki Gray / Red with Audi Executive interior. As you probably know, the Limited Edition is a fully optioned (without sunroof) RS4 and the last run of their gorgeous naturally aspirated V8 engine on this car. I purchased her from Leeds Audi, but owned and maintained the car in Richmond / London TW10. I am the second owner. The car was used solely for personal use and was not a commuter vehicle - hence only has 20,4xx miles on the odometer of which I (sadly) only drove about 6,000 miles during my ownership. The car is in excellent condition - the interior is near perfect and the exterior as well, save for a tiny nick on the front lower airdam and some (lovely London roads) curb rash on the rims. You will not be disappointed in the condition of the car, and I'm looking for someone to give her a great home. My reason for selling is an upcoming international move. Selling for £34,300. Please email me, or call/text/WhatApp me at +44 7555 277011 for immediate response. The car is available as soon as you are.
  16. Hi all, I’m new to the forum. I would appreciate your help. I’ve just bought an A4 Avant 40TFSI. It’s a 2019 model, bought used from the local Audi dealer. As most of you know, newer Audis don’t come with a spare wheel (not even a space saver one). The only thing supplied is an inflatable kit which is pretty much useless and it also ruins the tyre if used, which means you have to purchase a new tyre every time you have a puncture. I have asked the dealer if I can order a space-saver tyre. He made some enquiries and the response was: “AUDI are not sure if it’s possible and also if it will even fit, as modifications might be needed. If you have a puncture, call breakdown service!”. Not sure what to think of that… Apparently the reason AUDI have removed the spare tyre is to reduce emissions… I drive a lot for work and it wold be very inconvenient to call breakdown service and wait to be towed to the nearest garage just to repair a puncture. I’d like to be able to put the spare tyre on and carry on with my journey. The tyres are 245/40/R19 (19 inch alloys). I had a look online and it seems that the Hankook T125/70/R19 space saver tyre is the one suited for this size. The only problem is that the boot space is very tight. There is potentially some room if I remove the pump box (which I will happily do if I can fit the spare tyre there), but the rectangular battery might be a problem, as it seems to obstruct the round shape of the tyre. Also, the battery cables run through the grooves and are not easy to move / bend. I took a photo to give you an idea of the space. Before I go ahead and purchase a tyre I wanted to ask if anyone had the same problem and if you have found a solution, i.e if it’s possible to fit a space saver tyre over the battery (and if so, are there any mods or extra components required ). Any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Steve
  17. Just swapped out my seats in my 13 plate a3 if anyone needs them, I'm based in wakefield WF4 4AB.
  18. Hi all, I’m new here and hoping you may be able to help me please. In ‘storm Dennis’ a piece of trim on my 2007 A4 convertible has flown off. It’s the black edging/trim around the upper outside of the windscreen. Does anyone know where I can buy this from please? ive tried searching eBay etc but can only find the whole silver casing. I only need the black piece of trim that slots in from the outside. Is there a separate part number does anyone know? maybe I am using the wrong wording to search? Thanks in advance
  19. Hi guys I'm new hear i'm a proud owner of a Audi S3 sports back... Please feel free to check out my car. Many Thanks... https://youtu.be/hQuQ0JZopdA
  20. Hi, I have an Audi TT 2.0 TFSI 09 plate and wondered if any knows why my headlights are so dim. I bought pretty good bulbs to replace existing ones with but didn't make any difference at all. my next thought is to completely replace headlamp units but is there a simpler fix? if not how do i find compatible headlamps? thanks a million petrol people x katie
  21. Hello everyone, i'm new here and in a process of buying used Audi MK3 car (year 2015 or 2016 - 2.0 vs 1.8), i'm deciding between the two because pricewise they are similar. Could you share some information on the main differences between 2015 and 2016 model year ? Are there any benefits to 2016 model ? I know 1.8 has less power but i think based on multiple reviews that 180 hp is more than enough because the car is super light. Additional question is what the difference is between S-line and standard version ? I'm looking into 1.8 TFSI S-line 2016 for around 20k pounds - would you go for it ? I'm based near germany so TT's are more expensive than in UK i think If any of you have any insight on what to pick or what you would pick please advise.
  22. Hi I’ve been loosing coolant pretty rapidly the past few day’s I can’t see any leaks I’ve changed the expansion tank cap and no difference I’ve changed the oil and it wasn’t milky at all if I put my foot down to about 90 the temp will start to creep up any ideas? Head gasket maybe? I’ve had The garage test the head for leaks twice and there wasn’t any but it seems like I’ve got back pressure in the coolant system.
  23. Welcome! With regret the time has come to put this beautiful car up for sale which I've owned for 5 months with the sole intention to take it around Europe on an extended trip. From cold starts in the 5c UK morning to high speed cruising through France in the 38c summer heat, it never let us down even once. An absolute testament to Audi, the previous owners and the professionals who have worked on this car through the years. Absolutely no expense spared, all modifications professionally done with receipts totalling near £20,000! This is for me the ultimate touring car, with room to spare holding 4 x 32kg suitcases and performance to make you feel like you're in a leather clad rocket that can still manage 32mpg!! Car was serviced before purchase and twice over my ownership (Millers CFS 5w40 NT+) with plenty of brakes and tyre tread remaining. During my 10,000 miles I have done little but clean, service and fuel the car. One water-to-air intercooler was replaced to fix a slow leak which has not returned since. I went above and beyond in my servicing by also changing the supercharger oil per general consensus of modified performance enthusiasts along with the charger belt and a magnetic oil sump plug. Car recently treated to full wax, machine polish & paint protection at considerable cost, so completely free of swirl marks! Comes with 3 keys & leather Audi keyring. Owned by 5 previous car enthusiasts, car has a full history (vast majority Audi), original service manuals with the Audi folder, including the factory vehicle inspection form, tonnes more paperwork, this is a later 2010 model and has had all common issues (water pump, gearbox) already remedied by Audi obviously with receipts to prove. Visually: The deep sea blue pearlescent paint is simply magnificent, sparkles and changes colour depending on viewing angle and lighting. The car has subtle visual modifications setting it above and beyond all other Audis new and old, aiming for a stealthy low key yet aggressive look. Surrounding the bottom of the car are custom silver painted sideskirts, splitter and diffuser complete with a custom black & red Audi Sport colour theme, with the front and rear RS bumpers and black Milltek exhaust tips bringing together an excellent RS style package that turns heads everywhere. All badges except the Audi emblem have been removed, window trim chrome has been blacked-out and rear windows tinted. To finish off, the car has been lowered slightly, sitting on 20" genuine Audi RS6 "peeler" alloy wheels showcasing drilled & grooved 2-piece performance brake discs. All of this, I can attest, is to zero compromise on practicality, this beauty truly flaunts the timeless saloon car figure and propels styling, performance, handling and safety to the next level, whilst maintaining Audi comfort and luxury. Interior & Specifications: Top spec dual-clutch 4-wheel drive QUATTRO model with tonnes of features all of which are working. Lots of modern features included; ABS, dual climate control, sat nav, auto xenon headlights & auto rain wipers with adjustable sensitivity. Add to that traction & stability control, combined with the excellent semi-automatic 7 speed S-Tronic DSG gearbox that allows manual override via both flappy paddles and gear-stick, you also have Audi drive (mode) select, the coveted Audi rear sports differential, adaptive suspension dampening and adjustable dynamic steering feedback. Inside is in PRISTINE condition; 2-tone black and beige leathersport seats - heated, carbon atlas interior, B&O audio system with 11 speakers including sub-woofer, metal foot pedals, lighting pack (foot well, doors & glove box), cruise control, Sat Nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth & AUX adapters for MMI with DVD player plus in-built + SD card storage. Aircon and dual climate control with rear passenger control, HID bi-xenon auto-on and auto-levelling headlights, electric seat adjustment for both seats, leather multi-function steering wheel, premium protective floor mats in all foot wells, electric adjusted & heated wing mirrors, auto dimming rear-view mirror, front & rear parking sensors with centre console distance display, heat insulating glass, spare tyre & toolkit in the rear. Modifications list: Stage 2 Custom dyno tune by renowned MRC Tuning in Banbury, various dynos over the years showing 471-491BHP & 580-588Nm Torque DSG (gearbox) remap providing higher torque & rev limit, with launch control (only used half a dozen times) Enlarged supercharger crank pulley & high-grip belt to increase boost Full custom 2.75" resonated exhaust system by Milltek costing around £3.5k (no drone!) Intake kit with larger intake hose, K&N filter, and modified airbox for extra cold air flow ECS Tuning wheel spacers & 2-piece slotted & drilled brake rotors with EBC Redstuff pads Height adjustable KW progressive springs (with original Audi dynamic adjustable dampers) Genuine 20" Audi RS6 alloy wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres X-UK RS4 style front bumper (with parking sensors) Audi RS5 rear bumper (with parking sensors) STaSIS 28mm rear anti-roll bar 034Motorsport engine torque mount Full Interior LED light conversion B8.5 metal foot pedals Custom RS colour theme on bumper/sideskirts Rear windows professionally tinted All badges except Audi emblem are removed Blacked out chrome on window trims Hidden tracker fitted (requires subscription) not any old GPS tracker, this is the real deal! The car has also been reprogrammed to unlock additional functionality via software including the Audi debug menu, RS dashboard needle sweep upon start, oil temperature & battery level displays, enabled lowering of passenger window when reverse gear is engaged, keeping on daylight running lights when indicating, and closing/opening windows by holding down lock/unlock from remote key fob. Negatives: This is a daily driven car and certainly no garage queen which makes it's condition even more impressive. To note; few minor stone marks on front, also marks on rear bumper, small 1p crack in windshield out of driver's main view (MOT pass), shallow scuffing on edge of alloys, 1 of 2 front 12v sockets is not working. Available to view near Bristol on weekends, or during the week after 1pm - 07598901334 Price is open to offers. This car is insured for £18,000 guaranteed asset protection justified by insurers due to the car's accolade, historical records and paperwork. No test drives without cash in hand, no exceptions. I will take you out as passenger if you cannot leave payment behind. Currently located near Bristol, subject to change as we're still travelling until New Years! Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. You will not be disappointed! Video will be added here once weather clears up For now here's some photos:
  24. Got two discs I bought a few months back for a car I no longer have. OIEO £350
  25. I am currently in the market for a late Audi A6 C6 Le Edition. I have test driven a 2010 and this is my time driving a Audi ( currently driving a BMW).The car was very smooth, changed through the gears with no issues and the no noises from the suspension, as this is a big heavy car. Below is a list of things to look for and problems, I have found. Air conditioning faults Feel for water ingress in the boot (particularly behind left hand trim panel),Clonks over bumps/hard lock front ARB bushes There's a small weakness in the flap system within the inlet manifolds that will throw an engine light.Later cars ~2010 on don't suffer from this. 6 speed tiptronic box is very tough with any sort of problem rare but an oil change at 100k is often recommended as a bit of preventative maintenance. DPF 120,000 miles EGR 100-150,000 miles Inlet Manifold Swirl Flaps 100,000 miles Suspension 120,000 Cup holders dry as there is a ECU underneath Is there anything else I should look out for.
