    Had my coilpacks replaced at Aberdeen Audi first thing this morning - no problems.
    They didn't touch anything else and the girl was as nice as she sounded on the phone!

    I had a quick nosey at the used cars while I was there... anyone lend me 20k?

    I bought 5L of Quantum Platinum from the parts dept and went to the bodyshop to have my rust patch examined for a warranty claim too...

    Just picked my A3 up from Taunton Audi after having the roof rust fixed, and while it was there they changed the coil packs without even being asked, excellent service, nice work as far as I can see.

    chaps i had a call from Audi yesterday trying to book my 8L in for this.....if you see the chap who bought it off me then if someone can mention, that said i replaced them all after mapping and so id imagine they'd be one of the latest version.

    Chaps, for those that have had the coilpacks swapped, what's the part number of the new coilpacks? I like everyone else is sick to death of coilpacks giving up but I really don't want the d*cks at my audi to replace my ones with new ones that are no better and also knowing Audi breaking something along the way.

    I'm assuming that they keep the ones they take off ?

    They reported that my near side ring spring is fooked, the pig tail had snapped off, looks like it's been like that a long time... Lush

    You're alignment will probably be way out if your spring has snapped. Definitely worth fixing.

    Bromley Audi Confirmed the recall booked in for Friday thanks for the heads up. Apparently they don't notify owners by writing to them (I guess looking up all previous owners and then sending letters out is a tall order) but notify customers of the recall when you bring it in.

    My local audi dealer said they would look at my S3 regarding coil packs change but wouldn't say if it would remove my remap if they downloaded new software onto the ecu? Are they talking crap? I take it people have had there coil packs changed with remaps on their S3 and had no problems after.

    Ring them mate, i did and they said APY engines are not affected...had to go by the car engine as they could not find my private plate s3 on the system, or the old reg witch according to him was a private number too...so no bolt down packs are involved wether it be hitachi,beru, or gmbh?,
    but i would ring if only to satisfy your own curiosity.....

    Thanks Dave, Just went down Audi Finchely London, after the lovely busty lady checked with her not so lovely manager, they said we can do it but we will need to run a diagnostic check prior to that which would cost you 75 plus vat! she first said there is a recall and when she came back the manager said there was no recall on my engine...

    I'm not 100% but i'm sure the Beru bolt downs were originally Hitachi. Then Beru put their sticker on top. If you look at my picture, something has been rubbed off the front lol These coil packs are becoming hard to get hold of now though! Bremi is replacing them

    might be wrong, but I thought GMBH was a German term for companies with limited liability, not a brand?

    Just had my coil packs change and free health check, everything when fine and no faults found.

    was speccing a car and was talking to the saleman who has a s3 8p which is stage 1 map and he said and the head audi tech, that if you have a mapped ecu, it will be wiped off if they put and updated software on the car.

    Just phoned my local dealer (Neyland Audi, they're pretty mickey mouse tbh) and they have said that my car is not on the recall list yet, but as they are constantly updating the list, I should phone them back next week.
