Zed, thanks for this - very useful. I will be getting the drain sup on mine when it arrives to see if I can find anymore

I have just made a couple of discoveries on my car. which I was not aware of:
  1. The DIS contains an efficiency program. The following link provides useful information on this:http://www.audi.com/...em.browser.html
  2. The glovebox is refrigerated via the aircon system, when this is working on cool

Anybody else know about these features? If not, I hope useful to know!!

On the Efficiency program it will list which items are using extra juice with the biggest culprit at the top. Normally on mine its just AirCon, but heated seats etc will be shown if they are used. It will also tell you to enable stop start whilst idling in traffic if its been turned off.

It is good but also annoying at the same time. It also tells you to change gear if you have a manual box. The cooled glove box is useful but you need to remember to turn it off if you are not using it. The display I seem to use most in the DIS is the digital speedo.

It also tells you when to change gear if you have tiptronic and are in "M" mode.

However, there seems to be a little contradiction here ............... if you are in "M" mode, surely then you cannot be too concerned about economy, you are more interested in GRUNT

cooled glovebox has been standard on all Q5's with A/C, certainly our current 2009 MY car it has a little switch which slides across and closes in the glovebox

i find the 12V outlet in the central arm rest very useful; didn't know it was there and didn't have it in my previous car; so nice to have now

LOL. We all use them in my car club. Makes organising 30 person convoy a lot easier!
