First off, welcome to AudiForums. Whether you're just browsing in anticipation of possibly buying an Audi, you already have one and want more familiarity, or you're a hard-core enthusiast wanting to learn all you can, you'll find it here.

That being said, help us help you by doing the following two things. Go to your profile page (on the header bar all the way at the left, click on User CP), and add two items - a signature and a location. This may seem dumb but you can make life a lot easier by having this information available.

For your location, include a city and a state/province. If you are having trouble with your car, you may get help from another member local to you. This helps a lot with diagnostics - some of us have VagCom software and can scan/clear fault codes and annoying warning lights. Having your location posted makes it more likely that a local AFer will offer their help.

Second, create a signature. Whether or not you include a picture or mods is up to you, but at the least, put in your car's year, engine, transmission, and drivetrain (see mine below - 99 30vQM, meaning a 1999 30-valve V6, quattro, manual transmission). When you post about a problem with your car, we will need to know this stuff in order to help you fix the issue more often than not. Posting it in your sig saves the hassle of you typing it every time or us asking you every time.

It'll take you all of a minute or two to do this and it'll make your membership better and will help you when you need help. Thanks, and again, welcome.
Want to add:

Once you've done as ImTheDevil has suggested, it's time to go find the AudiForums section that applies to the Audi you own, or are interested with:

The layout is pretty simple. Find your interest, click on the link, read/post to share or ask for help with your issue.

Stop by the Off Topic section if you want to waste some time having good, clean(ish) fun.

Welcome to the Forums!

New Member, Checking in.

I'm Scott, I'm in Iowa, and just purchased my first Audi.

Per my Sig, its an '03 A6 2.7t Quattro. 80k on the clock, one scratch on the back bumper. Otherwise new. It's had ALL scheduled maintenance done at Audi of Des Moines.
