  1. So what's next on the list? Keeps getting better. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  2. Need updates! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  3. I like the look of them as they are. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  4. As some may know I recently purchased an A8. The Audi fourm is kinda quite so I thought I'd start a ownership thread here. It's a 2005 A8L 4.0 TDI D3 Currently has 107k My list of things to do is as follows Diagnose why keyless entry and keyless start don't work. Likewise why the rear headrests screen don't work. Update software for the mmi and possibly update the nav Bigger rims ideally 20s of w11 or alternatively 19s le mans To date I have addressed the issue with the blocked sunroof drains. It was pretty straight forward and now work a treat! Video of YouTube on how to clear blocked drains Thanks Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  6. There's a fair few cars with Dutch plates around here. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk Only ee9 I seen tho
  7. Hi guys anyone know what these wheels are? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  8. Ac forged 818s I think.. they look similar but I personally prefer the other set Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  9. Update 24 July 2017 I recently met a guy in the Audi fourm who was kind enough to help out trying to diagnose some of the issue using vcdu. He found a issue with 19 can gateway being incorrectly coded and low voltage. Following on from this I took the car to a local vag specialist who also found the same errors So after a new battery and a lighter wallet (dealer part as it needs to be coded to the car which require serial No) and it being coded to the car the same issue of can gateway still persists.. So next step is to see another local specialist difference being he has a subscription to a software which only a handful of guys have with the only other alternative being dealers. Hopefully with his software he will be able to isolate why the can gateway doesn't accept the coding.. Thanks Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. Swings and roundabouts.. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. I saw one going back a couple of years it was a (black) LWB from Leeds iirc. The wheels suit the car in my opinion. Likewise there's a s class near me with the same wheels and again they suit the car. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks. Not usually a fan of outlandish rims but kinda like these plus the profile.. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  13. Update 17 July 2017 Flat battery Recently had a flat battery. Kinda strange seeing as I only had the driver side door open for about 10 min. Following on from thatvthe convenience opening function via the fob stopped working. Ie Windows and sunroof open/close via fob After some Google searches I managed to figure out that the 1 touch windows need to be reset for the above function to start working as it should. All In all abit of a faff but got there in the end. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  14. Update 11 July 2017 Here in sunny Birmingham we have had a fair bit of rain over the last couple of days, perfect opportunity to check if the roof drains are functional. Happy to report YES there are. It's a relief to be more unwanted water leaking in to the cabin. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. A friend is interested in it. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  16. I haven't really done much to be fair. Been busy with work. The drain issue was on the priority list seening as we are partial to abit of rain lol Audi are currently offering a "free health check" im going to book one if and when I get round to doing it. Thanks Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  17. Hi all. I recently purchased a new car from a trader. Did the basic checks on the firm and all seemed ok. I spoke over the phone regarding the car etc the usual. As it was far out for me I sent a friend who was closer. Anyway got the car and some issue came apparent which weren't mentioned to me. Issue such as keyless entry doesn't work Keyless start doesn't work The car was advertised as having covered 100k but actually has 107k Side mirror not folding And to top all that the roof is leaking. I have water in the car and can hear it slushing around So what can I do in this instance? What are my rights? I'm kinda stressed out at the moment! Help Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  18. Yep that's it. It's a awesome car. One that iv been wanting for a while. I was completely put off when I spotted the leaking roof at the first sight of rain but as mentioned in a previous post this thankfully seems to be a common issue with the sun roof drains getting blocked and noting sinister. Just a shame they were not at all willing to try to resolve this along with the other issues. But as said before I take completely responsibility for my part of not having the appropriate checks done before hand and the up side is I walked away with a valuable lesson. 1 Always inspect the car 2 See it for yourself 3 Pay for a rac aa or alternative inspections 4 don't fall for the sales talk Probably sound like common sense but in my defense i made the error of setting my heart on it and completely lost all common sense.
  19. Been busy hence the lack of updates. So I had a brief conversation with my solicitor and to sum up I have decided not to pursue this any further simply because of the reasons I mentioned above. I will name and shame this trader purely in a attempt to warn others of possible issue post sale. Personally I'd avoid at all cost. But should someone consider buying from them then I'd advise to approach with caution as the face to face/phone conversation sales talk is on point but like in my case the after sale service diologe is none existent! I was given the run around by their "sales guy Paul" and likewise was never contact by their "operations manager" I spoke to Mike Neal him self ie the owner and director who was quite simply unwilling to do anything, unhelpful and straight up lied in regards to the issue raised in his response to the solicitor. The Show Room Horsefair, PONTEFRACT, West Yorkshire, WF8 1RF Mike Neal select #mike Neal select #dodgy trader #avoid mike Neal select I'd ask anyone reading this to share on other fourms they may be apart of and likewise social media to warn others of the pit falls they may stray into using mike Neal select. Thanks guys for all the advice and information Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  20. Sad times. Thoughts with the families of the deceased. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  21. My initial intention was this but after seeing how dishonest these bunch are I'd be wasting time and money. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  22. I completely agree with you. It's hard to believe they didn't know of the issue such as keyless entry and keyless start etc. The water leaking I could give them the benifit for. The passenger wheel had not 1 but 2 nails in it! Again hard to believe they didn't know this. The leaking roof is clogged drains from what I have managed to find out from fourms. And it's a pretty straight fix. Hopefully Millage isn't the end of the world but seeing it was a deciding factor for me simple form a resale point of view. I've decided to keep the car and have the issue addressed over time as I do like it. The trader is a complete waste and hope they get theirs soon. It amazes me how they have lied through their teeth otter waste of air Personally it's the first time I used a trader as I have always been sceptical of them and know once bitten twice shy is my mind set.

  23. Would love a f11 but budget doesn't all it. Audi A8L Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  24. By the sounds of it the trader you bought yours off seems like a genuine guy. To date the guy I bought mine off have done little to try and rectify the issue I raised . Personally I don't want to let it go and for them to get away with it...but weighing it up its the only thing I can do do minimise any further loss of money and time. Hence I said I'll put it down as a lesson learnt. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  25. Funny enough that was the car I took to France. I liked the car but not a fan of the e60. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
