Thanks Vivriti. Glad you enjoyed it.

I am aware its dangerous to have the child in the mothers lap due to airbags in case of a collision. I am not going with the explanation that I drive carefully.

Since the car was new and now my daughter has got used to it I have started to seat her in the back with seatbelts. If she doesn't sit, once we travel a few kms she always feels sleepy and I shift her to the backseat then. Carrying a cushion in the car always helps too.

The car has airbags on the sides of the rear seats too, so have to be place the head of the child away from the airbags.

Default Where can I find Audi A4 Front Grill in Mumbai

Hi,

I just got the Audi A4 Premium edition. The Stock grills are matt in colour, I would like to upgrade them to a Chrome grill like the one on the RS4. Any idea where can I find them in Mumbai.

Any contact along with any pricing details will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Why not ask Audi themselves for the front grille?

Rather than scouting around, ask them and get the OE part along peace of mind.

Else if you have any friend outside India, they can get it when they come.

Hi there..Sorry for the delay. Everything gets done at the dealership. Just contact the accessory division at the dealership.

As I have mentioned earlier in the review, front grill can be painted glossy black for about 10k.

Chrome strips can be added to them for another 10k.

All works will be done by the dealer itself as the grill painting requires the bumper to be dismantled which needs authorized and trained mechanics.

One of my friend also had the roof painted black on his white A6 for about 15k which looks awesome too.

Good luck.

Correct me if I’m wrong but being a Multitronic CVT does it really have gears? I am still under the impression it does not, but maybe to give you that sporty mental feeling when you see the gears!!
It becomes a step CVT where it has pre-set gear ratios from 1st-7th. The lowest and highest ratios remain same. Is the car jerky at low speeds?

It shows M1, M2 and so on in Manual/Triptronic mode and S1, S2 and so on in sport mode. I believe its till 7 but I have never seen 7 so far The car is a dream to drive and I find it completely jerk free at any speeds low or high.

Hey, I would like to know how much you paid for the A4 OTR ?
My father is interested in the A4 2.0 TDI 177bhp with Drive Select Premium Edition model. The Bangalore/Hosur dealer quoted us a price of 43 lacs OTR. Is this too steep ? The financing options really look good though.

I have mentioned the split up in the opening post under the head PRICE. Totals come up to about 35.432 lacs. But then I did pay in December 2013 and they have jacked up the price twice since I believe. Also I think the tax has also been hiked since.

Ex showroom prices are mentioned in their website. What matters is how much discount is the dealer giving you and whether the tax is calculated after the discounted amount or not?

Hi, The pictures of your car from this thread seem to have been pilfered and used without permission and I found the advertisement on the website carwale.com suspect as well. I have included the link here for ease of reference. Please choose to take this up as you may deem fit. I was browsing used cars on the website and also reading your thread when I came across the pictures which are exact copies of yours. Thanks, Harish

Hi sir, How has your experience been with the A4 last two years? Have you faced any major issues, etc. with the car in terms of service? How much does a regular service cost yearly? Im thinking of buying the current A4 but for some reason it is not being offered with parking plus. Anways, i'm getting a discount of 10 lakhs on the OTR price! Kindly let me know any advice/tips you have....

Hi kiran, my experience has been fantastic so far..Touchwood. My usage is minimal though as i prefer small cars around town. I am only just about to complete 10000 kms in 2 years.

Have done two services-both first and second year. They were very professional and courteous. First service came up to around 28k and second one came around to 21k. Overall pretty happy with the service aspect.
