Awesome work!
I think the new sub groups are a great idea, and I am sure they will streamline the forum!!!

I appreciate the time and effort that went into reorganizing the site, but I don't care for the changes. I think there are a few drawbacks to the sub group layout:

1) Many issues are common across several model years. Categorizing a walk-through or known issue into a single sub-group just hides it from people who could find it useful. For example, turbo issues can be found on all models and the fix for a turbo blowing oil in a B6 is no different than a B7. Why confine a poster to a single sub-forum?

2) I think you're reducing the probability of questions being answered by people other than current owners of a particular model. If, for example, I'm browsing the forum looking for info on my B7, I have no reason to poke around the B6 forum and provide insight into issues that I'm familiar with because I've previously owned a B6.

I think the forum should be back to the way it was.

Just my 2 cents - and I do appreciate your effort in trying to improve the forum.

I was thinking something similar when I saw the change...
Its too bad there isnt some kind of a cross reference that would allow the posts to be central in one area, but also divided into sub groups in another.
I know its hard work - no matter what the design - so I apprecaite everything that has gone into it... I just wanted to mention I was thinking something similar.

In some cases im sure its 6 one way half a dozen another...

Hi,

I am new to this forum and had a question that I was hoping I could find an answer to. I have a 2007 A4 Cabriolet from the U.S. and I need to find out how to enable the daytime running lights. Does anyone know how to get this done? Is it something that I can do myself or do I have to take the vehicle to a dealer or autoshop to have them do it?

Thanks in advance for your answers. I look forward to hearing back from anyone with some info.

M

If you are sure the sensor is OK, there may a problem with the piece that is being sensed, When I had my 1998 B5 sedan, I had to get a replacement toothed wheel - the old one had corroded with the salt etc from our winters so there were missing teeth etc.
