    If you have no fault codes I would suggest a fuel problem. Take the fuel pipe off that comes from the tank and make sure there is fuel coming through when the ignition is turned on. The pump in the tank should run for a few seconds to prime the circuit.

    You tried a proper VCDS scan? I can almost gurantee you will find a fault code if the engine isn't starting.

    Check the high pressure belt is still intact, right at the front top of the V under the cover, cover looks like normal car cambelt cover, no pressure = no go, it drives of one of the camshafts on the passenger side head
