    What car do you have and who told you about the software update??

    Please be aware that if your car is remapped, when they do the s/w update, you will probably go back to your original map, therefore loss of power and money as well (if you paid for it)

    Just something to bear in mind.

    Just had mine checked but only one was replaced as the rest were not the model for recall. This is at Audi in Artarmon, Sydney.

    Finally got mine booked in at Neyland Audi for Tuesday. They only have 1 courtesy car and thats booked out until April 10th, so I said I'll wait, but they only have about 12-15 cars so its going to be a boring 1hr30. But hey, coil packs are being changed for free so I can't complain.

    Had mine done on 3.2 today at Audi Carlisle in just under 90mins. No problems and no hassle or pressure to fix every wee scratch / bulb on the car. Offered a free wash but hadn't time. They also reset my emissions light as part of the recall / change but it reappeared after two starts.

    Booked mine in at Epsom a few weeks ago, didnt change any in the end. They said they were not the originals from the car. I know of a few people that have been to epsom and had the same happen to them.
    I dont understand how they can have a campaign against the coilpacks (which they know are rubbish) and expect the originals to be on a 10 year old car!

    Just read this and it reminded of me of when I got a ticket for bald tyres from the police. As he was writting the ticket I handed him the receipt for the tyres...bought the weekend before!! the cheek!

    EXACTLY the same happened to me. I've got about 90% of the service history with my car and NONE of it indicates that a single coilpack has been replaced. I suspect that they just can't be bothered.

    If someone could provide part numbers, I intend to check mine myself and have a potentially nasty chat with Epsom Audi...

    I've been to Coventry Audi this morning with my A3 (AUM) I had two different types of coilpacks on my car - they changed all of them to the latest type.

    No questions asked, drive in and back out within the hour.

    Yes im pretty sure they just cant be bothered. They told me that if they replace a coilpack that wasnt an original they would get a £500 fine. Let me know how you get on with Epsom..

    Would it be worth me booking my car in anywhere else or would it be on the system now that they have looked at it??

    Loads of A3s have been done - see the thread in the A3 forum - not sure about the engine code though - might be one that has bolt down coils - which aren't covered

    Just had *2 ign coils replaced at Preston Audi - 01772 730000 (Docklands)

    S3 2002 BAM.



    *Other two had been done by me previously

    No quarms, asked them and I mentioned that hundreds of fellow owners had other info on recalls. Appears as though they've been replaced. WIN :D

    me thinks i need to apply some pressure.... or i will ring one of the branches you guys have used and see what they say.....
     
  25. Has anyone else noticed a fuel consumption improvement since theirs was done ?

    My S3 was constantly getting 29.8mpg all the time. Now that I've had the coil packs replaced (all 4) I'm now reading above 33mpg ?

    Only other thing that's been done recently was a new battery, but that shouldn't have anything to do with it.

    I gave my local Audi a call today and gave them my registration and they said my car was on the recall list and is now booked in for friday.


    The problem is I've just found a receipt that come with the car for work done ,and one of the things done was the coil packs [SIZE=+0]. :3sadwalk:[/SIZE]


    Can someone let me know where the location of the coil packs are (i know it a stupid question) and what the old original ones look like (so ill know if they replaced them with the ones being recalled) ??


    Thanks ;)

    According to my Local Dealership, they do NOT flash the ECU. I raised this question after they locked my ECU during a battery change. My APR map was therefore set to stock mode, I then had to unlock and apply Stage 1 settings.

    I made them write a foot note on the 2nd page (jobsheet) that it is imperative that the ECU is not touched. Only the parts due for recall replaced. I informed them also that the ECU had been mapped / therefore it would cost me £££hundreds if they were to scan it.

    They of course oblidged after I made myself clear :)

    Audi weren't fussed about mine. I also told them under no circumstances was anything to be done to the ECU as it had been mapped. My car also has a different DV, exhaust and a K&N, so your's should be fine
