Where is my 2016 Audi A3’s OBD port location?
I signed up for a new program with my insurance provider to help me save, requiring me to plug a little device into my car’s OBD port. I’ve looked all over and can’t find it: can you tell where a 2016 Audi A3’s port location is?

A 2016 Audi A3’s OBD port location is underneath the dashboard, on the left side of the driver’s seat. Feel around on the dashboard beneath the steering wheel; you should find it easily.
Good on you for signing up for your insurance provider’s telematics system. When you’re a safe driver, it’s one of the easiest ways to score a great car insurance discount.
Knowing where your OBD port is is also useful if you ever experience any unforeseen trouble with your vehicle. With an ODB scanner, you can get an error code to help you diagnose what’s wrong with your vehicle.
