On 2018, is it possible to have the radio to go off automatically when turning the engine off? Thank you for your help, Eli

An annoying feature IMO - only goes off when you remove the keys. I can tell you it's even more annoying if you have keyless (I don't, but have had loaners with it) since it waits for the door to open.

I'm sure in my A3 the volume decreased when the ignition was switched off. TBH it's far more annoying with keyless - you'd have to open the door to cut it.

I'm too lazy to turn the volume down manually when parking in front of the house Wink

Let's face it - this isn't a real problem LOL

I don't find it annoying either.  When you get to your destination and want to listen to the end of the news item (or similar) it would be more annoying to have to leave the engine running......

I'm keyless and it works just fine on door opening IMHO.
Just press the button to switch it off?
I'm still trying to remember to switch the stop/start off as soon as I start the car.

Everyone who has the the S/S and doesn't like it/cannot drive with it..........had better get used to it, I can see it becoming a feature that will be customer secured in future legislation.
