    Needle sweep can only be done on later S3's and RS3's & would already be enabled if possible.

    I need to find someone who has personally been to Stoke Audi so I can see exactly how much they were charged and what for and also who did the job as they don't seem to know of anyone going there to have this done!

    What a waste of time!! Half a day off, 2 of us £30 each in juice all the way to Stoke Audi for them to have my car for an hour!! Only for them to then come out and say we can't do it because the mileage is different on the White cluster than what's on my car!!! How obvious is that!! Somebody please remind me again why I f**kin hate Audi with a passion!!!

    That is absolutely the biggest load of bollards I've heard in my life, they know a used cluster is going to be used, they have coded in a number of them for others FFS, audi have no rules to say they cant code a used cluster, wtf is there problem!!!!

    My invoice also said what mileage was on my old cluster too. I wonder if the dealers are being told not to code used clusters?? Looks like I was lucky to get mine done! Maybe just take it to one of the tuners who bypasses the immob LOL

    Hold on, what exactly were you told, they couldnt or wouldnt code them?

    As I know they can given I had a set of S3 clocks coded into a Jan 07 S3 last week.

    Unlikely mate, vcds cant be used to do immo for the challenge id system which newer clusters have afaik, skc yes.

    They said they couldn't do it because the mileage would be different so it would be fraud, and they couldn't change the mileage because there not new clocks!! They said they didn't know me from Adam so couldn't do it!!

    What a load of ****, truly, they are allowed to fit used clusters & there is no law that states you cant, just mileage is noted & cluster change noted, its not fraud unless you claim its the correct mileage when you sell the car & who you are is irrelevant, you are paying them to do a legit job, they're jst pissed cause you proved them it wasnt a 3 hour job at £200+

    Well I know for sure I can get it coded in mate if you fancy a trip down south.

    So they CAN do it, but as they dont "know" you BLAH BLAH BLAH ,
    thats basically what my local Audi garage said as well m8 even although they have the complete warranty,service,and mot history, and a parts list like only people on this site would believe, all the warranty, service and mot work is from me over the last 4 years FFS!!!, so i thought i would travel 250 miles to Stoke for them to do mine as well, i better have a rethink

    Don't think so N8, just a bloke called Chris and Adrian, I told them they were used clicks so they never should of let me go down there and waste my time!! I've not finished with them yet! They can reimburse my half days wage and fuel costs as it was there error!

    TBH mate you should challenge this full stop based on records of others being coded by them which were used.

    Thats whats so strange about it though, they've usually been very helpful, I can only believe they dont like the fact people are aware its a job that takes minimal & they cant rip you of for 2-3 hours, I mean the job is timed anyway, they have set allotment of time required to do, so why try & charge you more.

    I have a white cluster showing 32k (I think!) which are up for sale. Removed from a 10 car a little under a year ago I am not going to get the time or money (need the fuel sender changing on my car, per-facelift and mileage correcting) to get them fitted as I have other projects and need funds. So PM me if you are interested. Otherwise they will go on eGay next week.

    Cheers
    Joe
