    Running best it has in a long while!

    Just been in for 8 coils replaced for free and my car feels like its running better than it has in a long while, has anyone else thought this after having coils replaced?

    1 went last week and was replaced to get me about and the car felt good but now after all 8 replaced it feels a lot smoother, faster and a lot more responsive.

    Would the old coils have been sort of breaking down slowly and causing a little roughness maybe?

    Also heard it said so many times before, but.... If you havnt already, ring Audi and get them changed for free!!!

    It might sound a silly question ... but how on earth do you get audi to replace all your coils free of charge??

    There has been a coil pack recall on some models. Call Audi & find out if your car is part of the recall.

    I had mine replace FOC due to the "recall" although Audi refuse to call it a recall even though the problem was coil packs catching fire!

    Mine felt much better after the change too and it was ll free, Norwich Audi did a safety check and a valet so great service. All the safety items where valid and have now had my guy do all the work at a fraction of the cost plus an RS4 RARB which is a must have mode for an S4 and very cheap to do.

    This is across the whole VAG group on specific coil packs, not all. VAG refuse to call it a recall, I think they are doing it under the guise of a TSB or something.
