    Just got a letter in the post from Audi, to say that my car is part of the coilpack replacement. Bit late now, but good for others who haven't had it done

    I had a letter from local Audi Centre too this week detailing the enhancement..will give them a ring next week to find out when I can take it in, and make sure they remember the car is mapped..although every time the car goes in, its already highlighted in bright green on the job sheet before I get there !!

    Had all 4 replaced today at Huntingdon Audi. Very happy boy even if the staff were a little rude and arrogant to start with.

    Apparently faulty clutch pedal switches aren't a common fault.... Idiots.

    Just had all 4 of mine replaced at Northampton Audi. Sat in reception drinking very nice coffee dreaming about the convertible R8 parked in the showroom!

    My part number for my coil packs which were replaced were: 06B905115R if that helps anyone. Great service - was done in 25mins. Although I didn't get a receipt at the end to confirm the work, oh well!

    Just had 3 of mine changed at Dundee Audi on Friday! They refused to give me any form of receipt for the work carried out, 'it was logged on their system' and that was it, did offer to stamp my service book though?

    Having only bought my '03 S3 a month ago, I booked it in to Newcastle Audi to get the glovebox repaired (cos it was hanging off!). I was in there 2hrs, gained new ignition coils that i knew nothin about, car health-check, washed & vacumed, returned to me with a free tin of sweets - not a penny spent!...strangely they didn't do the glovebox cos i was pushed for time. Due back on 6 th June to get the job put to bed. Hadn't ever used main dealer before, so a surprisingly painless experience for a 1st time.

    P.S. I've picked up an issue today - when i put me foot down abit to overtake some dude, the power died for an instant before pickin up again, where i spotted the ESP and 'engine management' symbols had lit-up on the display. Has anyone got an idea what it's likely to be??...

    Welcome to S3 ownership - hope you enjoy it! Post your question regarding your power loss on the main S3 8L section and I'm sure you'll get a response.

    Joined the forum last night, today my S3 is boosting as it should, who'd have thought an N112 by pass would make such a difference, and I'm booked in for my coil packs tomorrow. If first impressions are anything to go by I love this place!

    I did book it in and was going to but my old Audi ignition coils on.

    I'm currently running coils I bought from ECP last year when i had a full service and single mass flywheel fitted at same time.

    I decided against the recall because my car is running well as it stands especially after seeing my RR results the other week. And being brutually honest didn;t want to risk upsetting the cars performance.

    Just got back from parklands audi in Glos.

    All 4 changed and wash and valet, great service.

    Was speaking to one of the managers and i'd forgotten the paper part of my driving license so no courtesy car! Totally my fault, all i wanted to do was go to tesco and get some breakfast so he ran me down there himself, then he took me out in a TT-RS as i said that was the car i'd buy over the R8.

    think he just wanted to get out of the office :D

    also got a print-off saying what was done to the car, so can put that in with the service history.

    I'm so hacked off to only find this out now! Week before goodwood in July i had a coil pack failure so paid to have all 4 replaced at a local garage owned by an aquaintence. D'oh!!! I heard there was a fault with them but didn't even think to call audi when mine went as assumed they'd tell me to jog on since it's a 2001 car

    Mine went in last week, they replaced the coil pack and at the same time I got them to do a service - unfortunately they discovered the sump plug threads were stripped! Blinkin flip! Went in for a free coil pack replacememnt and came out hundreds lighter in the pocket! Still, it's done now I suppose!

    Phoned Audi, gave my reg...
    "Yes sir, yours has the coil packs we are replacing, how does Saturday sound?"

    Went in Saturday, all four were working fine but they replaced them all FOC anyway...

    Brighton Audi were on top form. Very impressed with the service :-)

    You didn't have to read through 389 posts to find it - it was 6 posts above your post in this thread.. it probably would have also come up if you could have been bothered to use the search function as it's been posted elsewhere as well..

    I got to page 4 and didn't have time to read through the rest and check if someone had posted it, so i throught as i wasn't bumping the thread up i'd just ask. I did search but the threads were old and most including i would assume that the recall had expired hence why i posted in this thread. and sorry if i am suspicious of a link posted on an open forum named 28E9 it could of been anything. leave the matter i have found the answer very quickly and its now booked in, so thanks all for that.
