    Spotted a few forums talking about Audi replacing its coil packs on a wide range of it's TFSI engines, anyone heard anything more about this?

    Yep, had my 05 3.2 quattro done today. Had one go a fortnight ago so this was a very timely recall for me!

    Just ask them to check for recall's using your reg number. Not sure if it's all petrol models or certain ones but mines an 05 as I said before and it's been done

    All of mine were replaced today, got a free valet and wash too. Looks like it's cured my rough idle. Result!

    I got called back last week there and nothing to report as I had already changed the coil packs to the latest revision when I had missfiring issues last year.

    My missus '04 R32 has just had them done ... as a recall ... so pretty chuffed as no cost (Was billed as £145 I think)

    My 07 S3 is having them replaced today - was in for Haldex oil change anyway and they just added it to the job card.

    Bit of a thread revival here.....

    My 2006 s3 is idling very eratic, thought it could be a coil pack breaking down, phoned Bath Audi and asked them if i qualified for the coil packs, indeed i do, 5th of August i will be getting new ones :)

    In my mind im thinking maybe not a coil pack and maybe a sensor?

    Anyone got any ideas what it could be?

    I've just been looking through the Service record book on my new purchase and notice under
    'Workshop remarks'
    A stamp by Audi Glasgow and 28E9 written above it, would this be for this recall?

    Call them and ask. I phoned to order one new coil pack on my v8 S4 and they said "oh - there's a recall on them - come and have them all replaced!"

    Happy days.
