I'm trying the video as a small GIF. I hope it works:

Great. I'm glad the gif shows up. I don't know my setting to be honest since it's the wife's car and she set them. I'll have to take a look and report back.

I checked, it only works on the Drive Select ambient setting which puts the Surface and Line ambient colors to white. I use the Individual setting and have the Line on red and Surface on off white. I actually think all the lights flashing on temp change could be a little distracting when driving. Seems kind of gimmicky.

In any case nice find McGriddle Ive never seen that on any of the videos and may have never come across that hidden feature. I almost started a similar thread and highlighted the Coverart hidden setting but then someone posted it up in a different thread.

Glad to hear it works on yours as well. I guess it makes sense that it wouldn't show if the lighting is already set to red or blue since you wouldn't see it then. Sure, it's gimmicky, but overall not too distracting since it only changes on the side being set, e.g. just driver or passenger. I guess it would change both if setting temp while both sides are synced. I haven't tried that, though.

Now what's this cover art hidden setting thing? Anyway, I'd really love to find a way to actually show cover art in the VC on my B9 RS5 when in Apple Play mode.

Yes, my heat is on Sync and itís the whole car flashing, so one side would be the way to go. Coverart is accessed from the Radio screen. The factory setting is the radio station logo. Tap the station logo and a new screen pops up with a larger station logo. Swipe right and it will show coverart (if available). Then hit the back button and coverart will be the new default setting on the radio and the VC screens...

Anyone notice that the rear camera on the Q8 has a small nozzle that sprays the lens to clean it? First found this on my 2018 Q5. Apparently Audi must be making it standard on new models.

Thereís also a setting in MMI for cleaning the camera I believe.
