Default "Obscure Audi Details' for 40 please, Alex

To all the longer term Audi owners: Can anyone tell me what that little clear flexible plastic tube, located in the rear right wheel well, is designed/used for? Traded out the OEMs for slightly larger, deeper tread Hancooks and had to push this tube back into the rear housing behind the crepeboard and thought perhaps its a drain for surface water. I offer a 'secret' MMI recoding for whomever has the answer.

I asked the same question as it started dangling out a few months ago. I've half forgotten the answer in my old age (40 in Oct!).

I think it's the auxiliaxy heating systems exhaust pipe. It's for colder days and you need the heat inside the car sooner rather than later. I'll email the master tech and make sure.

Can I have a recoding of the reverse camera so that it doesn't switch off above 5 km/h please ? ;-) Once, my MMI was stuck in one of it's silly loops, and the reverse camera picture didn't switch off. It looked quite cool as there had been a bit of drizzle before. Another nice-to-have.
