  1. Ex Audi - BMW all the way :)

    Well, that didn't work, my spelling is atrocious and there are no pictures.
  2. Ex Audi - BMW all the way :)

    Hi all, I am the proud owner of a 428i, love it, I really do. Only had it for 3 days and I need to stop adding miles. Any advice re fuel, tyre pressures etc, etc would be welcomed.
  3. Ex Audi - BMW all the way :)

    Pictures taken, not that great more to follow after a 3 day session at my valters.
  4. Map update 2016-2

    Last question before I upload some pictures, current version 2014-2 pro nav, should I get the 2016-2 update from the dealer, are there any major changes?
  5. Map update 2016-2

    sounds great, just been quoted £106 by BMW. Are they exactly the same as the BMW version, I've noticed that some have safety camera alerts, do these? last question, does the update integrate with all original functionality? D☺️
  6. Map update 2016-2

    Thank you, very interesting, my car is a 64, I'm guessing this is a 2016.
  7. Snap in phone adapter

    Hi all, newbie here. Is there any benefit of using the snap in adapter over a standard iPhone connecter in the USB port?
  8. Snap in phone adapter

    Thank you all, I can play video through the USB, it's not really a feature that I would need, I am intrigued by the external aerial though, is there not a lightning cable with the female end of the snap in connector?
  9. Ex Audi - BMW all the way :)

    Thank you NNMM, I don't have an MFD, now that I have checked what it is, I definitely want one next.
  10. Ex Audi - BMW all the way :)

    Hi, thank you both for your answers, I will try that in the morning, I am so glad that I am not losing my mind. :), keys and memory now working. The car has full black panel, pro nav, so tomorrow I will paly even more. Does anyone know if BMW retrofit? I'm after the advanced loudspeakers etc. I will take photos very soon.
  11. Ex Audi - BMW all the way :)

    Ok, no pictures yet but a couple new questions. 1. Auto zoom at junctions - (Pro Nav) it was zooming, now stopped, I haven't fiddled. 2. Seat memory linked to keys. bit flakey, sometimes yes, sometimes no. Could these be linked to the BMW server issues?
  12. Ex Audi - BMW all the way :)

    Nope, great car, rock solid, classy interior and just feels so right, more questions soon. Thank you and Hi.

    Wow, supportive, helpful and friendly, thanks!
  15. taking the plunge

    I would normally agree, however, this is being done FOC................ Completed so far; • Carried out removal of gearbox and clutch/flywheel stripped and inspected, compared to new pressure plate and found clutch finger springs dropped in height – cause of judder. Carried out replacement of complete clutch and bolts. Torqued and put gearbox back in. Road tested and all OK • Replacement of two front tyres (Dunlop) • Phase 1 of the 3 phased (8 hour) sat nav update! • A road test for rattle which Mark believes could possibly be from the dash rather than the door – They are carrying out second road test after update (unfortunately the car has to stay plugged in to a computer on a ramp until update is completed) Who knows, perhaps there is magic involved..................
  16. taking the plunge

    Whilst my car is with Audi for warranty work, I asked if they would update my satnav as a gesture, they agreed, the update for MMI 3g HDD nav takes 8 hours! and should cost £320.00 does anyone know what the update contains?

  18. Nav for cd orsd card without HDD

    Hi I am confused! Do you have satnav installed? If you do, then you will already have satnav, however, if not, you will need the unit, new buttons etc etc.

  20. Will 8po 857 511 c fit?

    Hi all, thanks for the support! Just FYI - The mirror is a perfect fit/replacement, has humidity sensor and is a plug and play replacement, simply remove wiring shroud by easing the bottom over the mirror housing, twist the mirror anti clockwise, only a small twist, unclip socket, position new mirror, twist clockwise, re attach the wiring and clip shroud back, took 5 minutes and all original functionality (auto lights/wipers and 3rd zone A/C) work perfectly. Auto dimming working perfectly and all functions spot on. Very easy and I am chuffed with the saving, mirror £25.00 e-Bay against £470.00 + VAT from Audi, 5 mins work against quoted £270.00 + VAT by retrofit company.
  21. Hello, does anyone know if part 8po 857 511 c will fit as a direct Plug and Play replacement for my non dimming rear view mirror? Rain and light sensor with AC + Thank you
  22. Time for a change?

    Hi Time has come for a change, I currently have an 03 A4 3.0 sport and am considering a 3.0 tdi A5, any suggestions on which to go for and any advice on the price for mine. Considering part exchange with Audi dealer but was offered £2,700 against an 08 A4, help!
  23. Time for a change?

    Thank you, done
  24. Time for a change?

    OK< as you asked so nicely I cannot remember how to upload
  25. Time for a change?

    Well, thanks Billy, it would appear that no one else is playing, just between you and me, I asked Audi if they could re enable SDS on the car, the answer was no, no, no........................... However, it was done and works faultlessly.
