View Full Version : No Owners Handbook

03-04-2017, 08:55 PM
I've just purchased a 2013 (63 plate) A4 Avant Black Edition but it doesn't have any of the handbooks with it so I'm trying to find replacements.

I got a service schedule direct from my local Audi as it was the same price as from eBay but they want 58 (ouch) for the wallet and handbooks. Looking at eBay I'm not 100% clear what to look for. I assume the handbook would cover all trim levels but would the B8.5 have a slightly different handbook to the B8 and would I need an Avant specific handbook?

The listings descriptions sort of contradict each other. For example:

This one (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUDI-A4-S4-B8-S-LINE-TFSI-SE-ALLROAD-QUATTRO-AVANT-Owners-Handbook-Manual-Book-/132132031855?hash=item1ec3aecd6f:g:j8cAAOSweuxWRNq H) says it covers Avants & years 11-14 but has a image of a saloon on the cover but this one (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152479637903?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT) looks the same but says it cover 09-17. Then you this one (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112342751315?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT) for only the Avant (I assume B8).

There also seem to be A4 and A5 booklets (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292066288221?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT)?

Can someone with a B8.5 Avant point me in the correct direction?

Just checked mine. (A4 Avant Black Edition - 64 plate)

My manual has the face-lift silver A4 Saloon (same reg number :D) on the front as per your 1st 2 links. Contact the seller to confirm the part number???
These details on the back:

Owner's Manual
Audi A4 Saloon | A4 Avant
Audi S4 Saloon | S4 Avant
Audi A4 allroad quattro
Englisch 05.2014

So it was released in May 2014 but should cover what you need.

You can find digital copies here if that's of any use. You'll have to register but it's very useful.

Thanks for that, very helpful. I've ask the seller to confirm the year printed on the back but they list a slightly different part number, 132.561.8K0.20, first three digits are different – my guess its from a different year.

Just out of interest I'm sure there should be a sticker somewhere on the car that lists the codes for all the options the car came with – my old A3 had one hidden in the boot somewhere – I can't seem to find one on this car. I could just be being blind thou.

@djl78 Thanks for that, it's a shame they are Flash based - meaning I can't access them from my phone if I needed to when out and about. But it does helpfully list the part number so the handbooks that came with my cars year.
