RE: 96 A4 Bugs?!

I know what you are talking about with the cD player, but I usually put on the 
radio at first.  I'll have to actually pay attention tomorrow morning.
BTW- is the volume for your CD lower than the radio?   My volume is 
significantly lower, so I turn it up, then get blasted when the radio is 
switched on.  Any suggestions?

I don't have any of these problems, I think.  I just tried turning
on recirc with manual fan speed settings and it worked fine.
The AC compressor must be on, though.  Didn't try engaging recirc
with manual air direction (will try that tomorrow morning).

One bug I did find on my A4 has to do with the CD changer.  If I load
a new CD magazine while the car is shut off (i.e., the radio is off
from having removed the key), when I start the car (and the radio
comes back on in CD mode) it displays "CD01TR01" as it should, but
it doesn't play.  If I turn off the radio and then turn it back on
again, then it will start playing.

Anyone else in an A4 with CD changer experience this?

Other than this minor "bug" my A4Q has been total joy.  This is one
fine automobile.
