    MINOR - Different mileage in filenames vs. freeze-frames - normal?

    Hi,

    My full scan was called Log<licplate>-<vin>-<km>km-<mileage>mi.txt.

    For example, Log-XXXX999-WA1C7AFP6GAzzzzzz-36000km-22369mi.txt

    The licplate value was filled in by me and I left the repair order blank.

    NOTE - a full scan can be made available for Ross-Tech Support. At the top I see the 36000km value.

    Mileage: 36000km-22369mi Repair Order:

    BUT - for a fault from today from Address 03: ABS Brakes (J104) the freeze frame shows "Mileage: 36007 km"

    Other prior faults have a lower mileage just odd that the file-name did not actually have the latest actual mileage which shows 36007km on the dash.

    As I said - this is minor. Cheers,

    /dan

    That's a "rounding error". In some places in the car, the mileage is stored without the last digit...

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    How un-German of Audi .

    Thanks Uwe... as I said, not an issue just an observation.

    I looked at a few of my other logs and I see that pattern now. Pretty funny since the Freeze Frame stores the time (to the second), RPM and the air temperature.

    Now if you could work magic on my Steering Assist issue that made my 2016 Q5 a 2.5 ton brick, that would be great .
