Default New Member Johnston County, NC

Hi all,

I am a new member/new owner from Johnston County, NC. I picked up a 2008 A6 last week after owning a VW TDI for the last couple of years, which I really enjoyed.

If anyone nearby should read this, I am looking for a good shop in the area, though I'll be scouring the forums over the next couple of days as I'm sure there's a list by location somewhere around here.

I am having some MMI issues, which I've posted about in the tech forums, but other than that I've been very happy with the car so far.

Welcome Sultan62 and I wish you the best of luck with your `08 A6. 3.2 or 4.2? Quattro?

You have the MMI controls with the "self destruct" cup holders located directly behind it. Removing the MMI controls may reveal any evidence of previous spillage...the #1 killer of MMI control heads and potential cause of MMI problems. FYI, a new head unit is BIG$$ but there are reasonably priced MMI circuit boards available on certain bidding websites. We've installed a few of these at the shop where I work and they seem to function very well. Any capable Audi technician should be able replace it and clean out your original head unit with a modest amount of labor.
