Well it had to happen sooner or later! After having done the marathon moonwalk in london and finishing at 9am with no sleep, we decided to go home. Down the M4, change up a gear and lose all power, change down a gear still no power. So I coast over to the hard shoulder, stopping at the 100m post for heston services, so close yet so far.
ANyways called Audi RoadAssistance and they managed to get out in 45mins and recovered the car and us back to home, thank christ!.
Audi came out the following day and confirmed that the cambelt has gone and the car is now at Ridgeway Audi getting sorted. Have to say the entire experience was great, the care and service from all involved was excellent.
Thankfully I called Audi a few months ago about the extended warranty as mine had expired. They stuck me on the list so I am covered for the recovery and hopefully for the work needed to be done by the car. That is what I am hoping, as the cambelt han't been changed and the car has done 95k , but I do have a piece of paper advising that the cambelt should be changed at 115k.
Still I should have done it earlier but what can you say when you are going by manufacturers requirements?
Also from speaking to the Audi technician, he has no news about an S3 or RS3, but the next S6 and S8 will have V10s and have been given the green light.
All in all the customer car was sublime, I even got a TTC as a hire car while mine is getting sorted!
