I have a A4 1.8, I went to autozone to buy the battery but none of them fit
perfectly. Is there any solution to fit the smaller size in side the a4
battery slot. I don't want to spend $155.00 with the dealer's battery.
Take a look at the manufacturer sites - and their retail associates - on the
web. Usually you can find Make/Model/Year/Engine selector guides for their
That said, here's the first example I came across...
Diehard International Mfr. model #33348
Sears item #02833348000
save you a few bucks, anyway...
I've had excellent luck in recent years with Interstate and AC Delco's
pro batteries. Not the Delco's you find at Kmart, AutoZone and such,
but the ones from real parts shops. Check your local yellow pages.
They'll cost more, but after having 2 of the AutoZone cheap as you can
make 'em batteries dump acid in my engine compartment, I won't touch 'em
anymore. (and no, the charging system and all were fine. 'twas due to
cases and seals that failed)

Assuming it's at least a B5 model, throttle adaptation can be accomplished by
the driver using the ignition key (turn to run position, wait three minutes
I'd be more concerned with the radio dropping into SAFE mode and (1) not
knowing the unlock code and/or (2) having used up the limited number of unlock
cycles (iirc the Symphony-II was only good for 5 unlock cycles before it was
done for good)...
Thankfully, I haven't quite tested the veracity of the claim - I'm up to 3
unlock cycles in 5 years - but as I recall, when I stumbled across it I had
the same reaction. And if I need the 6th cycle I'm sure there'll be some
choice words heard ;-)
I susoect/hope that there is some misunderstanding here. Many radios
implement an ever increasing delay between unlock attempts - so it might
allow five before forcing you to wait an hour before trying again, then
two hours etc...

Yep, I think you're right , in that it's not the number of correct unlocking
cycles, but the number of incorrect entries in a row - you have 5 chances to
enter the right code.
