    Juss, so are you saying that the same coilpacks from VW and Audi are cheaper at VW than at Audi, are they exactly the same mate???

    Correct mate exactly the same! I rang audi and they said 32 for 1 but their parts department was shutting for "stock take" within minutes so thought stuff you then - so gave VW a try, 49 for 2.

    From now on im ringing Vw first before I ring audi.

    Hiya,

    Think youresleves lucky. I do diagnostics & fault finding etc. Got called to a non start golf 1.8 the other week, which was constantly blowing 1 of the ecu fuse's.

    Traced the wire all the way to the main feed for the coilpacks. It appears it was a direct short & blowing the fuse. Not too drastic, but....

    I posted my find on a diagnostics forum I frequent, only to have a few replies thrown back that this guy was sooooo lucky. Normally the packs have a tendancy to go, ala any VAG car, but on the golf, it is apparently common for them to set fire causing all sorts of damage, not even taking the fuse out.

    Aah well, to put your minds at rest, no one had come across an Audi doing it<S>
