      MMI

      I've been having problems with the MMI in my '15 SQ5 using an i-Pod. Random selection limited to about 10 albums at a time, meaning I hear the same artist every 45 minutes or so. Plus, several...

      Fuel and SQ5

      Just reading an article the other day about not using more refined fuel than necessary--don't use premium unless it's required. I've always used premium, but at 50 cents a gallon more than 85 test,...

      SQ5 owner comments

      I'm an R32 owner who is considering a used SQ5. Any favorite years? What are the problems with the car? Any comments welcomed. New? How do you like the turbo vs the supercharger?

      Report a seller

      I don't see a place to report a member who sold me a part and then refunded my money when she found out that the object was worth more than she had asked.

      Thank all of you who have replied, I just purchased one, and it's on its way.
    7. WTB gear shift knob. No worn leather, please.

      My shift knob has scuffed from usage and it's driving me crazy. Anyone have a clean smooth one?

      Snow tires

      I was warned of that since stock tires are super-summer. I'll have to buy "snow tires" if such things exist for 21's, but in any case, I'll have to get a second mortgage. Thanks for the input. ...

      Thanks!

      I had rather presumed that most were leased, where most things were covered, or in either case by the warranty, but probably the cost of insurance and any irregular repairs would add up. And monthly...

      SQ5 issues

      I'm an '04 R32 owner who is looking to "expand". I was wondering what issues you all have had with the SQ5's. I see many listed with low mileage, wonder why?

      Thanks, all

      Thank you all for your suggestions. I had neglected to check the condition of the rotors, but I will. And as was said earlier, parts numbers would help.

      Thanks!

      Thanks for the info, I need to get on purchasing the parts myself. I can change the pads easily, but I'm not enthused about changing rotors, although I have done that before. When you don't bend...

      Miles

      82,000 and I downshift, so my brakes are seldom used. Having said that, they are on their way out.

      Brake replacement

      I'm too "stove up" to replace my own brakes at 70, but when I went to the dealer, they wanted to replace pads and rotors to the tune of around $2500. I know one should do that, but have any of you...

      I had my ballast go bad in one of the headlights. The dealership claimed they were aftermarket, but when I brought in the box with the VW number on it, they were able to trace the number and get the...

      Flappers on Audis

      Here's a question for you hot shoes. Is it feasible to purchase the flapper kit and get it installed on an Audi 3.2 or 3.6 or is that a lot of money and headaches? Can it even be done?

      Finally got back to checking the clicks, and it's not the climatronic, but the turn indicators, as was mentioned above. I'll try the suggested solution and get back... Indicate left or right turn...

      Dash clicking noise

      I have a clicking noise, apparently behind the center panel of the dashboard. At first I thought it was a turn indicator problem, since the noise was similar, but that wasn't it. It's not the...
