Default 2012 a8l 4.2

I have busted my Audi cherry and bought a 2012 A8L 4.2L with 55k miles. Im obsessed. What a ride. I literally will never own any other sedan. Ive had it a couple days and trying to get used to everything, read the manual, etc. The rear backup camera does not appear to be working. I did have one random occasion this am actually as I left for work where it did work, but otherwise, it does not. All that comes on my screen is navigation (or Media, Music, etc). Is this some setting somewhere maybe that has been turned off that I cannot find? Or maybe its just broke.

Also, I've read that there are a couple of minor tweaks that can be done to the engine/transmission or something that can really improve performance, engine sound, etc. I cannot find the article for the life of me. My gut tells me not to go tweaking anything in this beauty, but it doesnt hurt to ask!

Thanks for the time.

Don't mess with it... Unless you're racing it, why waste the money? Drive it. Enjoy it.
