Signing off

Just wanted to say goodbye and thanks for all of the information and learning here over the past 6 years. I turned my A8 in last night and picked up my new vehicle - a 2019.5 Range Rover Sport...

Dealt with them many times on my two Audis. Let's just say that I'm surprised they apprised you of the warranty and got it covered.

This post from MP4.2+6.0:...

That's great news! It is emissions-related - there is a screenshot upthread of the relevant 7/70 warranty for the states that follow the CARB provisions. In any event, that's awesome that you were...

You're talking about a company that faked its emissions data for years - Audi isn't exactly a corporation that cares about its customers.

I don't believe S/S is government mandated, at least in the US. It has been adopted by manufacturers as a way to artificially pump up fuel economy ratings. It's ridiculous that it can't be shut off...

Apparently Range Rover has software fixes out for their throttle lag issue. The updates are for the transmission control module and one of the other engine control modules. The owner who had it...

It's not limited to the Q8 or Cayenne either. Range Rover owners are complaining of the same issue, in both the full size RR and the RR Sport. The stop-start system seems to be the likely culprit...

The dealer my car got towed to was initially going to charge me a diagnostic fee as well, but once the repair was under warranty I didn't have to pay anything.

Assuming you are in CA and the car was initially sold (new) in CA, you should be covered under warranty for the turbos under the 7 yr/70k miles emissions warranty that is applicable in CARB states. ...

I think you are correct and we've already seen it from another manufacturer in the same space. Jaguar Land Rover announced (somewhat unexpectedly) a new engine for the mid-year "2019.5" Range Rover...

I think you mean there's lots of opinions on that here and other forums. I don't believe it's been proven that more frequent oil changes does anything other than give owners some sense of insurance...

I think he's referring to cabin air ionization. I don't think it's an option on US-spec Audis.

I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm just saying that the things you pointed out are nothing obvious that anyone can easily see. I had a 2012 A6 Prestige - loaded with everything but B&O sound system. ...

The designs are similar but I agree with derfA8L - there's something missing in the execution of the Q8. The front-end isn't really attractive and the interior didn't impress me when I sat in two of...

My biggest letdown with the D4 A8 was the lack of content available in the HUD. My 2012 A6 Prestige had the HUD, and ACC was integrated in the HUD on that car. It still makes no sense why the...

It does look dark with the black carpet and trim, less so in the photos and videos where I've seen it with gray carpet and trim. It's a nice color.

Are they that red in person or is the color just popping in the photos? That color is burning my retinas.

Nutmeg is kind of meh for me. Is Sarder Brown an option on the A8? That color looks really good paired with gray on the Q8.

Agreed in general, but the short wheelbase A8 isn't that much bigger than the S6 (from the specs I could find it looks like the NWB A8 is 8 inches longer than the S6). I had a 2012 A6 Prestige right...

Is there something radically different about the S6 vs. A8 engine placement/design for the 4.0T? I don't believe the front end of my NWB A8 needed to be disassembled for the turbo replacement, but...

It is messy - that's why they want 1/4 tank of gas or less in the tank when they do it. My recall service was done while my car was at the dealer for my turbos failing. I had just filled up the...

Some fuel smell is normal for a few days. I had it on my 2015 A8 4.0T after the recall repair. It goes away.
