    Start the engine and unplug one by one... if it runs worse then thats ok if it runs the same then its probably that one..

    The spark plugs didn't feel right when I was screwing them in, I suppose it's possible they're not in correctly, but it's strange how 3 of the 4 are covered in sut and 1 isnt

    Yes although it's not totally advisable in the long run as the other 3 are still tired so it would be best to change all 4 at the same time.

    2 coil packs from TPS were the same as a full set of TFSI one's from Awesome GTi at the time I replaced mine + the adapters (plastic from TPS) = a no brainer

    if buying the 1 fixes the issue I'll then buy all 4 but going for the cheap options to wittle down the possibilities

    ok thanks :)

    Another thing a Red Service lights come on my dash, it was cleared at a garage because the Cars been recently serviced (when I got the new engine fitted) but almost straight away it came back on, could this have anything to do with my issues?

    Try swapping the coil packs round first and see if the missfire follows the pack

    Keep us posted and a quick note, when you replace it, go for a genuine one, if you go TPS or Dealers, they come with a 2 year warranty.

    ok the Cars sorted!! :)

    Thanks a million people you have all been great! the mechanic I was using was at a loss and wanted me to spend £200 on a remap, so I'm very happy! :)

    1 thing though the Car starts funny and the rev counter bounces to near staling point, so on payday I'm going to give the Car a good self service and replace all of the packs as I can imagine the others are on there way out also.

    Any idea what the idle problem is all about?

    This video is what I made before the Car ****ed up completely and it basically shows the problem that hasn't went away (although the Car is fixed) is it just the fact that the other 3 packs need replacing?

    Check your battery is fully charged as mine was a bit funny starting from cold as it looks like it was too low to provide enough amps

    Ring Audi to see if your car is on a recall list for coil packs

    back to basics my friends, see if you can get someone to carry out live data no fault codes suggests that the sensors are working, coil packs can start to fail and not flag up a code even on vagcom (happened to me) check fuel delivery, check air delivery and check ignition, sooty plugs are normally due to running rich, over fueling or faulty ignition,

    That's a shame they're only cheep anyway, like I said the Cars sorted but I can just feel that there's something not right especially with the revs bouncing all over the place, so I'll replace the last 3 packs and see were that takes me.

    What are your opinions on this?
