  1. MMI version

    Hi Guys Just bought a 2010 A6 Le Mans (pick it up next week) and this is the first Audi I will have owned that has the MMI. As far as I know its the standard Le Mans spec but I was just wondering which version of the MMI would be fitted? All I know is that the car was registered May 2010 and it has a disc navigation system. Would this model also have an aux socket as standard? (I forgot to look!) Many thanks
  2. MMI version

    So picked the car up at the weekend… Really pleased with everything but a couple more questions for you guys… 1. Got a low battery charge message pop up on screen the day I picked it up whilst filling up the tank. Is this normal bearing in mind the car has been sat in a dealers yard for 3 weeks or should I get it checked? This message hasn't appeared since the fuel stop and I have been driving the car all weekend! 2. The MMI software version is BNav_EU_P0022_D1. Is there a newer update available and if there is, are there any benefits if I wish to upgrade? Thanks once again!
  3. MMI version

    Thanks for the info! I didn't buy the car from an audi dealership but I will give my local one a call to see what they can offer me in terms of the latest DVD and software update if required. What is the most recent software update and when was it released by the way? I did notice the 2 SD card slots in the glovebox so I may be using those to play MP3s from if you say that is an option. I take it the normal 6 CD changer plays MP3 discs as the symphony does in my current A4? Oh and another question that has probably been asked a billion times (sorry)… Does a SDHC card work in the SD slot? Cheers again!
  4. MMI version

    Thanks for the reply… So if I wanted to update the software or get the latest nav disc, firstly how would I find out if I had the latest versions and secondly, If required, where would i get these from? Oh and will the MMI be generation 1, 2 or 3? Cheers
  5. I need new tyres

    No idea why they went so quick? The tyre geezer said the car was balanced correctly so put it down to hard driving which is a load of ****e. The tyres that came with the car were continental sportcontact 2 (235/45/18) so avoid them like the plague in my opinion. Still got 4mm on back 2 so they can stay on for another 6 months. I'm told I should get upto 20k from the Good years so we shall see…
  6. I need new tyres

    Had 2 Assymetrics put on my front of my 8 month old A4 Avant 2.0 TDI sp ed (170) last week after the original 2 were scrubbed after only 8500k miles. They cost £250 fitted and they feel great!
  7. New A4(B8) Avant

    Avant is at your local dealer on saturday fellas
  8. A4 valuation

    why does it surprise me? errr let me see . . . maybe the £24 to £26k price tag on the audi approved cars website?
  9. A4 valuation

    Check this then and weep if anyone is thinking of chopping in a B7 . . . Last week i got a price from my local VW garage on my current motor. I have a Oct 2007 57 plate A4 Avant 2.0 TDI (170) S Line Special Edition Phantom Black with Symphony BOSE and Executive Pack (Auto wipers, lights and bluetooth car kit) plus all the additional sp ed goodies and 6k on the clock. This cars list price was nearly £29k when i bought it 7 months ago, it still looks immaculate and you know what the [email protected] offered me? £20k ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
  10. A3 2.0 TDI 170 MPG

    My 3 Door 2.0TDI 140bhp did 49mpg. My current Sportback with same engine does 43mpg. Exactly the same journey every day but with a lot more options than the 3 Door. I'm guessing the difference is due to the weight of the car? A4 2.0TDI 170bhp is on order and now I'm anxious!!!
  11. News - First leaked pictures of the new Audi A4 !!

    Very subtle exterior changes, major interior changes. Its an A5 copy inside the cabin which looks very upmarket. It just looks 'ok' which in one hand disappoints me after seeing various amazing artists impressions over the last 6 months but on the other hand i'm pleased as i've just ordered an Avant so i'm not thinking 'f**k that looks amazing, what have i done?' Having said that I thought the new TT looked very average until I saw one in the steel!
  12. News - First leaked pictures of the new Audi A4 !!

    Surely that cannot be the next generation A4? If it is then the designers want shooting!
  13. Bluetooth question

    The iPhone is incredible! Totally brilliant! How do I know? Because yesterday I was messing about with one for about half an hour! One of the blokes I work with has a lad who works in the states and he is back in the UK for 2 weeks to visit his family and bought along with him his brand new $600 iPhone! And the weird thing is he only bought the phone with him to show it off to all his mates here in the UK but it works perfectly on O2! This phone is so smooth as you scroll through the phonebook or photo library and the screen is bright and pin sharp! Oh and it looks stunning!! iPhone shite? Yeah right!!!!
  14. Bluetooth question

    Just ordered an Avant with GSM mobile prep in front armrest. I realise this has a bluetooth connection that allows handsfree calls but what is the bluetooth interface and charger that is mentioned in the A4 brochure? Brochure quote: GSM mobile telephone preparation in front centre armrest with hands-free function, Bluetooth interface, roof aerial for optimal reception (Avant only) and charger. A phone adapter is required at extra cost. Please see your Audi Centre for phone compatibility and full details. Must be combined with multi-function steering wheel and DIS. And what is the adapter that is available at extra cost and what does it do? Thanks!
  15. Some advice please....

    [ QUOTE ] I doubt you'll get more than £19,500 for it, stick it on for £20k and see if you get a bite. The main problem being a new one is only £23,660 and you can get 10% off A4's quite easily from dealers. [/ QUOTE ] I have just got 10% off my new avant but thats only because my dealer is a good friend of mine and this is my fourth new car from him. I have tried 2 other dealers and the most they would give me was 5%! 10% is unheard of and according to my friend, a dealer will only offer that discount on fleet sales.
  16. Bluetooth question

    Blackberry . . . . . . iPhone . . . . . . . . . .
  17. Bluetooth question

    Good call Dave! Looks like the latest iPhone update may have cured the dropout problems! Hopefully anymore issues will be resolved by the time the phone hits the UK. I have been waiting for this phone sine January so it just has to work!
  18. Audi - Derby - anybody dealt with?

    As I live just outside Derby they are my local dealer. I have bought 4 new cars in the last 5 years but everytime I have been to see them for their best price it has been way off the mark! A former work colleague and good friend of mine has worked at Leicester Audi for the past 5 years and its because of him why i have had 4 new cars from Leicester and not Derby. He has always asked me to get a price from Derby before I go and order the car from him, just to see how close they got but they have always been miles away. I've had a couple of minor problems that have been dealt with at Derby and on both occasions my car was returned to me without the wash and vacuum as promised in all the sales brochures. When I challenged them they told me they didn't have time to do it as they were busy! I have just ordered my 4th new car from Leicester Audi and once again my friend has given me a fantastic discount. My previous discounts have roughly been around 8%, all on A3's but this time I got 10% off an Avant. They have also carried out all my services and tyre changes and my car has been returned to me all shiny and clean! My advice is go and see my mate down at Leicester. I'm not promising the same deal as he can do for me but its worth a try for the sake of half hour down the M1. PM me for his contact details if anyone is thinking of buying a new or second hand motor in the near future!
  19. Bluetooth question

    Perfectly! Fingers crossed it works with apples iPhone in 6 months time!
  20. Bluetooth question

    As this is my first Audi phone kit I know very little about how it works. How does the car pick up the address book from your phone? Is there a sim reader or is this done manually somehow?
  21. Bluetooth question

    Its a Nokia 6233, pretty common phone really so hopefully there should be no problems? Works fine in my current A3 but that is will a nokia car kit which itself picks up motorola and sony ericson phones so surely the audi gsm kit won't have any issues?
  22. Bluetooth question

    I take it 99% of all bluetooth phones are compatible though?
  23. Bluetooth question

    Got a nokia mobile at the minute but was looking to change it for a new model in a few months anyway so its pointless buying an adapter just yet. So you can still access the phone through the MF steering wheel? And will the phonebook function work through the DIS?
  24. Bluetooth question

    Cheers. So what functions are available without the adapter?
  25. My Dilemma...

    Dilemma over. This is what I have ordered today: A4 Avant 2.0 TDI SLine Special Edition Lava Grey Symphony Bose Acoustic Parking Executive Pack My dealer guesstimates a 10 week delivery time so looking at an October delivery!
