    I have just booked my 2003 s3 in with Audi for the service campaign to check and replace the coil packs. It's on 105000 they still said it's covered.

    Whats the chances of them replacing the coils. Anyone else had there's changed

    They said that with mine then once there told me that none of them were the original coilpacks with the correct part no that were fitted so wasn't covered as they had already been replaced by pattern ones from Gsf

    They wouldnt replace mine, because it was the bolt down coil packs.

    They changed all mine today They were all genuine so wasnt a problem. Was speaking to the guys there that I used to work with in the workshop they don't even check them anymore they have loads in stock and they Audi don't ask for them back if they do there are loads in there warranty cupboard. So give it a go even if you have GSF coils

    Had all mine replaced at Chelmsford Audi the other week under the recall.

    No mention of one being a replacement, no mention of checking them, they just replaced them and provided me breakfast while they did it. Happy days.

    Had all mine replaced gratis 2 weeks ago, despite the car bein a 51 plate with 76k miles. They said if you have the orig packs and they have not been changed on the system they have to change them as it was a recall.

    do you have to take the car to them? or could you simply turn up with the old coils ? i changed mine some time ago when a couple decided to die on me, i still have the old ones though........

    I asked Audi that same question, they will not supply you with coil packs under the recall for fitment yourself whether you give them the old ones back or not.

    You do have to book your car in for them to do it - so they told me anyway.
