    Hey guys,

    I'm in urgent need of a late-type coil pack for my S3 as after a remap mine has gone down. I don't suppose anyone in the Pompey area has a spare one lying around they'd be willing to sell so I can get the car running properly?

    Ta,
    Andy

    Hehe yeah was just reading back through your old thread! At least you got bit of a drive before yours failed :) I'm still left guessing exactly how good the remap is! Keep getting the odd push of boost inbetween coughs and splutters..what a tease!

    i know mate, has one failed completely? if not, dont tease it, if one goes then it will sound like a tractor and you may damage your CAT (you might have read this but just in case)

    Nah it's ok if I stay off boost, which I'm reluctantly doing at the mo!

    Mike - Thanks for the tip but I work in Hedge End so will probably have to pick them up from Southampton Audi in my lunch break tomorrow. Will be a bit more expensive but it means I can get the car running properly tomorrow.
