My 2012 is not on the VIN list, but Audi asked me to do a consumption test. I'm down to about 450 miles per quart, and just under 80,000 miles. We'll see if Audi covers me. Of course, I may just...

I'm replacing my Q5 with an Outback as soon as my dealer gets the trim I want in stock. I drove the 2.5 4 cylinder, but am getting the 3.6 6 cylinder. Very powerful, smooth and quiet. With all the...

My 2012 2.0T has no such setting in the MMI, so perhaps it wasn't available that long ago.

That would likely work fine.

And there's nothing wrong with the suggestion to keep your fob in a microwave oven. That is a perfect example of a Faraday cage. Just don't power the oven up with the...

Correct, not Audi-specific. The only sure-fire solution is to keep your fob within a Faraday cage when you are home. What's a Faraday cage? Basically, it's an RF shield that block the fob signal from...

Doesn't matter. When they use the radio tool, it's still your fob talking to the car, so it thinks everything is fine. The radio repeater is just a strong radio that can reach your fob inside the...

I doubt there's a simple way to clean a DPF. It's not like you can just open a door and shake out any ash inside. It's most likely going to be baked onto surfaces, which is why replacement is likely...
