I have an 2004 A4q 1.8T with the Sport package performance tires 235
45/R17s. I have ~ 4,100 km on the vehicle with moderate driving, 800
1. I had a puncture which I drove on for about 1km to the tire shop at
slow speeds. The tire was not deflated but was running about 1/2 down
on the sidewalls when I got to the shop. I can see some slight
abrasion on the sidewall but nothing to alarming.
Should this tire still be good?
2. I have been having problems since day 1 with AM reception (and have
posted here about this bug) and learned something interesting this
week. I was on a ferry and listening to the FM radio, reception was OK
but when I got off and switched to AM, the reception was terrible. I
was listening to stations with transmitters about 30 km distant. The
reception in the past has been good (other than the some times crappy
reception). As I got closer to the transmitters, reception was not
improving. Then a light went on: I 'rebooted' the car and reception
was back to 'normal'. It would appear that the initial crappy
reception experienced on the ferry 'set' the radio and only a reboot
improved it. I guess there is some MS code in the radio.
The question is: has anyone else experienced this change in reception
via a reboot?
