Just thought I'd let you diesel owners know about a guy at work who's just had is A3 130 TDi in at the dealers.

The car was running a bit funny, lumpy idle, a bit more noisy than usual but nothing major....he thought.

Dealer spent a few hours trying to pin-point the problem. It so happens 3 of the cars 4 injectors are buggered and need replacing, but they've suggested that all 4 are replaced.

The cost...you'd better sit down for this...

4 injectors at 400 (+VAT) each, equals 1600 (+VAT)
4 hours labour at 70 (+VAT) per hour, equals 280 (+VAT)

Which gives a final total of: 2209 !!!!!!!!


Needless to say, the guy at work is very happy the car is under warranty.
