Hi there, I am new to this site and would appreciate any advice with the following problem:
I have a 2005 A3 Sportback, 2.0 TFSI Quattro. The Emission Control light and the Engine Management light came on during the week and I am being told that I need to have a new Engine Control Unit fitted. The cost of this piece of kit in Dublin is around £450 (ex labor and VAT)
The A/C has also not been blowing cold for a while and I am being told that the gas is full but a new compressor is needed at a cost of €720 (ex labor and VAT).
Is it unusual for a the Engine Control Unit or the A/C Compressor to go in a car of this age?
Does anyone know what the cost of these items would be in the UK, as I could go up to Belfast to get the work done.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I was shocked at the cost.
