    Dear Mr Maunder,



    The information we have from VAG is that both the 140 and170bhp models are affected by the issue.



    If you are not receiving any assistance or informationfrom the dealer, I would suggest that you contact VAG Customer Service on0800699888 and ask for Victoria Carter or Isabelle Lindley. If this doesn't work, then try the number Isupplied in my original email.



    Yours sincerely



    Andrew Tudor

    My cousin has had his A3 in since the start of the week and believe he has his car back today, they changed the wiring loom and 3 of the injectors, as one was already replaced by a previous owner.

    He did have to get in touch a few times with Audi and VOSA, but they have eventually got it all done now.

    Hi There

    Has anyone else had an injector fail on the A4 140? If so please contact VOSA and log a complaint, you need to do this on their website. Otherwise VOSA are not aware of a problem with the injector and will not put pressure on Audi to fix it.
