Threw a CEL last night...
It was a Bank 1 Fuel Trim (Add) System too lean

Researched and probable cause was a vaccum leak.

Opened hood this afternoon and found this:

Been there, done that. That's super common on these cars. Audi's stock hoses suck.

Did you guys replace it with just rubber? I saw a post somewhere about someone using silicon cause it was better...

Rubber or silicon will work perfectly.

3/16" inner diameter I think. Get like 5 feet of it, you will need it in the future, trust me.

What department is that hose in? I looked in homedepot before and couldn't find it.
