    Audi coil pack recall

    I know there was a thread about this a few months back but I thought I’d start a new one as some of you may not know and there was even some speculation over it’s authenticity when it was first mentioned.

    There IS currently a recall on all petrol Audis with coil packs. Yesterday I had all four of mine swapped out for free and they even gave my car a full valet while I was there :-)

    All you gotta do is phone up your local Audi service centre ask about it and they’ll book you in to see if you are allegeable!
    We all know how ****e the Audi coil packs can be, and free stuff is always good! Hope this helps someone out

    Does this include second hand older Audis like my 1997 1.6 A3?

    Surely they wouldn't replace the coil packs for free if you are the seconds or even third owner of the vehicle?

    My S3 wasn't covered as it uses bolt down coils. This is in Australia though so might be different for other countries.

    Just seen your other post mate. In that case if your car has this then no because your car has got the old style ignition transformer with HT leads not the 4 coil packs on slightly newer vehicles.

    I think they are right as i think the AGU engine has bolt down hitachi units which apparently give few problems.

    Found the recal thread here.
