    My 3.2 is in for a custom map on the 21st of this month.

    I will report back on how it goes. I have the missfire issue and have been told it will be resolved with the remap.

    i have issues with missfire on cylinders 1 and 2, moved the coilpacks and plugs and still the same but its intermittent, when it starts to miss i turn engine off and restart and its runs fine.

    I had mine sorted out at Cheshire Oaks, give them a go. I didnt have a diagnostic done first but they were under instruction from Audi UK as I had contacted them first. I must say though, Cheshire Oaks didnt want to do it but had no choice. My hesitation was sorted straight away so I was glad I had it done.

    thanks for all your replys.

    hope you are right(jason 3.2) with the remap , i have given up with audi now look forward to an update.

    (Dave 555) .the issues that i am having are hesitation while accelerating . it`s not as noticable when accelerating hard . it`s almost like the slight pause inbetween gear changes , worse some days more than others.

    (Discostu49) There is a lot of posts on this site concerning this update and a lot of members have had this done and it has made a diffrence to all concerned .

    (Sarah a3) thanks for the reply, i approched audi shrewsbury had no joy then phoned audi uk who told me that i would have to pay over 100 pound diognostics first , to see if i need it .
    to me there just screwing me for money . just to tell me i dont need it after

    Can't believe the dealers are still being obstinate over this update. Definitely don't have the diagnostic done as it's a waste of time and money.
    I remember when I first had it done at my dealer (Huddersfield audi), they initially wanted me to have the diagnostic which I obviously refused and then wanted me to sign a disclaimer to have the update put on. In the end they just ordered the update cd booked me in and charged me 1/2 hrs labour. It was the best £58 I ever spent on the car and made the next 2 yrs a very enjoyable experience!
    If you have the symptoms then don't give up its worth the effort

    Oh yeah also meant to say, I had the update without diagnostics at Northampton Audi if that's any help, people are more than welcome to quote my number plate/me as a precedence set at Northampton if it helps

    My 2004 3.2 has had missfire and unsteady idling, hesitancy, jerkiness issues for over a year now. Mate told me about an Audi coil pack recall from Jan 2011 which I got done at the stealer for free recently - no more missfires. The unsteady idling, hesitancy, jerkiness issues were sorted by cleaning the throttle body (ttforum had guide) which was full of black gunk. Took under an hour and the unsteady idling, hesitancy, jerkiness issues are all gone now. Car like new and cost nothing, worth a try.

    Would this update overwrite a Custom Code remap?
