Two recent surprises by me. If they are in the owner's manual I missed them.

1. Got to a part of my town where the traffic light info in tied into Audi network and gets sent to the car. Started seeing green and red lights in the dash and HUD. Additionally, they inform you how long the light will remain in that condition. Nice to be at a red light that isn't changing for 115 secs and know you can get slightly distracted changing radio stations etc without holding up others, etc.
2. Filled up the gas tank for the first time and the car "noticed" and asked if I wanted to reset the trip odometer.

Iím thinking more likely for warning triangle storage. A requirement in many countries. Not exactly handy place to get a bumper shoot when it is raining.

That makes more sense... Although I now have an umbrella in there.

Found some conversation in other models. Question is which part number fits the Q8. Is it 7Lo 860 251 or 8K 086 0251?

BigHat This is what you're talking about with regards to the green lights. I read about this last month, cool to see it being used. Would you say it's been helpful during your drive?

That's the same link I discovered when I got home to research it a bit myself. It's a bit odd in the sense some streets in Arlington and Fairfax County have lights tied into the system and others a half mile away do not yet. My initial inclination is that it will be helpful. Super nice to learn that the red light you just approached is about to change vs will change in 100 secs or so. As I'm sure you read too, the expansion of features that will be available with this information coming into the car will make it even better.

I have a Q8 order on the way (Prestige, YR1, Adaptive Chassis, Cold weather Pkg, Night Vision, Advanced B/O) and have been reviewing the owner's pdf manual. Has anyone found the fragrance selection feature? How do you know if you Q has it and what's the fragrance?

I have the same vehicle and don't believe the Q8 has this system in any trim level.

Quick note on the fragrance feature in the Q8 ... an Audi USA spokesman explained all features for Audi Q8s are explained in one manual. He also said the fragrance feature is included the Luxury Package.
