You can kick back and just keep your situational awareness.
Okay, thanks! I also flipped to that section in the manual and apparently, I'm not supposed to use it except on the highway rush-hour scenario...not in-city driving? I'll give it a go and see what it's like when the opportunity arises next week perhaps when I jump on the freeway.

Is the roof not fully blacked out? Looks like the back section is white in the pic. I'd definitely black it all out between the roof rails if so (but that's just me)...

Beautiful car, H. I would leave it as is for a while and enjoy the hell out of it. That's what I'm doing at least.

I'll admit, it took me a while to find where you put the owners manual in the car.

I will likely keep this thing stock for awhile...the only cosmetic change was removal of the Audi logo on the trunk because I figured cleaning in between the circles will be pretty tough and winters up here are crazy filthy.

Oh, that's right. No rear rings



Might as well make it JDM and put an H on the back

So...I assume I'll start seeing you over at AudiZine now?

As for the rings, it looks odd if you remove them (personal experience). Just go black...

Audiworld is a complete waste...I haven't even loaded it up in years.

Audizine is okay for the B8 S4 section, lots of people and ideas for a really small aftermarket. Off topic section is relatively non-existent which does suck ass. Which is why I stay on my BMW forums.

Yes. It doesn't react to traffic lights and you wouldn't want the car to follow a car in front of you moving into a turn lane when you are going straight, for instance.

Basically any road you would use cruise control on is fine for the Adaptive Cruise/Traffic Jam Assist.

And I have faith that you can do this.

FML. Joys of living in this forsaken city is the back-breaking winters...and well, guess what folks?!?

My windshield after just 700km on the mileage is toast! I was being nice...let this minivan cut in front of me on the freeway ramp and a small pebble flew up into the windshield. Per the weather thread, I had noted how beyond cold it is here (-36F). The chip was initially small...penny size in total length...but, literally, as I was on the phone with the windshield repair shop so that they can get that resin fix in...the glass split completely across. Sigh.

I have windshield coverage but per Statefarm Canada, I need to eat $1K deductible. Estimate replacement cost with labor is $2500CAD.








I lose my car on Friday for this fix. Hopefully get it back by EoD.

Ouch. Had similar happen with my F150. Small rock chip. Had stretched halfway across the windshield by the next morning.

Absolutely. With the heaters going pretty much full-blast in this frigid weather, it was a matter of minutes for it to spread like that...No chance. Literally, it split the second I was booking the car to go in for the resin repair.


At least the windshield is relatively "minor" change...This is not something chassis-related and/or mechanical...Again, with the climate and roads up here, I have more or less treated windshields like disposable parts. And seriously, it's the FIRST chip too. Managed to avoid any pebbles on the roads until today and first one is the fatal one. Sigh.

FML.

The windshield for the Prestige is, I believe, acoustic glass with a special coating on the inside for the HUD.

Also Audi says the camera in the mirror mount has to be re-calibrating after changing the windshield.

Might not be a Safelite job.

Sorry about your windshield, Yummy. Arizona forced insurers to give us full glass coverage with no deductictible down here because of how often they are broken...I need a new one after getting hit by three rocks right in front of my face in the last 4 weeks. It's a PITA, for sure, but having to pay so much out of pocket just makes it worse.

Sorry... but i think some of the audi owners here need to teach you some "How to Be a Cuck 101".... You drive a Audi S5 and you let Minivan cut in front of you...... :smack:
