    Unhappy Dip in power at mid range revs

    Looking for a bit of help here.
    My 09 S3 Sportback is losing power in 4th 5th and 6th gear between 3000-4000rpm and the revs dip for about a second, this is when the foots to the floor! After plugging it in the fault was reading a misfire on cylinder 2, so promptly swapped over the coil pack from cylinder 2 to 1. The misfire was now on 1 so went to Audi bought a new coil pack and swapped with the the one giving the misfire.
    The problem had not been solved.....and I haven't use of the Vagcom at present. Do I change the other 3 or is this not the solution to the problem? Would appreciate some advice if anyone could help me!!

    Changed the other 3 coil packs.....problem still there only at a lower rev range????
    Think I'll change the spark plugs see if this solves it.
    ANY ideas welcome!

    Defo needs new spark plugs buddy, its 50 pounds but well worth doing.
    Be patient. English is tough.
