    If aftermarket ones are working for you & are allot less money, get them, but if oem are cheapish, change out for all 4, gives you 2 years warranty afaik on most if not all audi parts.

    eventually i want to replace them with oem ones for the waranty just cant understand why my car isnt covered by the recall as so many others are and i sure havent taken my car to audi recently so there is no chance they could have changed them lol

    Ring another dealer, quote vin & ask if yours has a recall for coilpacks or anything.

    In my experience when one coil pack dies, the others tend to follow soon after. I thought Audi were recalling all petrol engine 1998< but with some exceptions (Bolt down coils on 8L's for example).

    Re: coilpacks and recall

    In the US, there is a cutoff point, I believe at the 2009 model year (or possibly mid way through 2008) at which any newer models are not covered. What's the build date of your A3?
