Had a nice Christmas present today. Received my 2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Technik today.

Found that I cannot register for Audi connect e-tron services at https://myaudiconnect.com. It requires a US zip code and only offers a list of US states (no provinces). So far, with respect to this feature - fail! (this website is in the A3 manual that came with the car).

Everything else - fantastic!

Very unfortunately there is no SIM slot in the Canadian version, so we'll never have this feature in the Great White North. Canada does not have true 4G yet, but you'd think Audi would have included the slot for the future possibility. Very shortsighted.

So. It appears I will have a wonderful scuba blue A3 technik in a few months. Here in Canada.

I still have my 2009 VW Rabbit. Would it be a good idea to keep it for winter time?

I feel like having two cars for a single person is pushing the luxury a bit too far... Any thoughts?

Have you tried either of the following sites?
https://my.audi.com
https://www.a3etron.audi.com

Also, even if you do not have a SIM card slot, there may be a SIM already built into the e-tron, there certainly is on EU spec e-trons.

This SIM Saga seems to be a major pain.

IMHO the two SIM services should have been integrated together to start with.

Let the forum know how the issue evolves. Please.

I was able to register on https://my.audi.com. Unfortunately my VIN shows the car as an A3 Sportback TDI.

I have a message in with the dealer to look into the whole Audi Connect/e-tron Connect issue.

Such a bummer that there's no connected service for the car here in Canada. I love that aspect and was hoping it would be possible.

Hate when they say there's no 4G yet in Canada. We've had solid LTE coverage for years.

Got mine a few days ago.

Indeed, there is no connection whatsoever in the car. Actually there seems to be no Audi Connect Services at large in Canada, on any model.

So much for being in 2016...

And I expect to see very few A3 E-trons on the road. I as understand it, at least at my dearlership, they only ordered or got a few and they are gone. They didn't even kept the demo I tried before buying, it's sold.

That said it's a really nice car, I love it.

They do seem to be quite rare. I put in an order for an e-tron in late February and they've said the demand is high enough (and likely supply low enough) that it's still nearly 2 months away before delivery.

And yes, quite sad that there's no Audi Connect service here at all.
