  1. HI, I'm new here but I wanted to update the gps in my Audi A3 and thought it would be a good idea to get advice from a proper forum. I think I have something called an RNS-E system? I found this website: AudiSatNav | Providing a navigation DVD backup service for your Audi has anyone here used it and could give a recommendation? Many thanks MuminanA3
  2. Hi - I am buying an A4 Cab (June 2009 2.0 TDI Final Edition) and will pick it up later this week. I was wondering whether anyone can help me with the following: 1. Is there a defined set of standards for the 'Approved Used' Audi. It would be good to have a look and see what the dealership should have complied with, so we know all is well. 2. It is fitted with a GSM phone prep (in the centre armrest). Is this bluetooth? or do I need to either find the right cradle for the phone or have a bluetooth unit fitted? There is no cradle installed at present. 3. It has the RNS-E Satelite Navigation plus. The software is 2009. Am I correct in thinking the 2010 software should have been out then? or will I need to buy new discs. Is there much a different between 09 and current versions? 4. For the RNS-E above I was thinking about having a reverse camera fitted. My wife is not confident with a larger car and this would improve her enjoyment of it. Is this relatively straightforward and does anyone know of an ICE Technican who could do this in or close to Birmingham? 5. and you all say finally I have got a set of Audi S5 chrome/aluminium mirrors. These are the ones with the clear LED indicators. Can these be fitted and made to fold electrically, or just too much hassle? Apologies for all the questions on my first posting. Just very excited to be getting the car and already thinking about how to improve and get the most out of it. All help and advice gratefully received.
  3. Buying advice

    Hi, As a new member to this forum can I congratulate all those that help to run this great site. Some useful info here. Now to my question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm looking at buying A4 Cabrio, probably 52/53 plate at around the £8k mark, my first adventure with Audi's. I've been looking through the forum to see which engine/gearbox combination is the most reliable and pound for pound the best size engine i.e. performance over economy. The 3.0ltr looking favourite ( I like the sound of the V6) at the moment although mpg not that great. I tried reading the ‘sticky’ “essential collection” but unfortunately the links within don’t take you anywhere. So its over to you good people!!!!!!!!!!! Which do you think is best and why??????????? Many thanks EQ
  4. A3 Buying Advice

    Hi all, After many years (well, 2), I have decided to jump back into VAG ownership. I've scraped together a budget of around £8k, for which I was suprised to find a number of 53-55 plate A3's. The last Audi I ownded was a Mk 1 A3, so I'm more than a little behind the times interms of engine specs and what changed when. I guess my question is, how do the earlier engines in the facelift A3's compare with the newer FSi engines? And is it worth me holding out for an FSi model (with possibly higher miles) over an older model with a previous generation engine? The missus would settle for a 1.6, however I would rather a 2.0 - petrol preferred (don't do enough miles to warrant a deisel). Apologies in advance for my ignorance on the subject!
