    I recently heard that there was a recall on the coils. My car still has the original coils and perhaps they are causing my engine misfire. I can find no posts on the issue of the coil recall. There used to be threads on this issue but no longer. Can anyone direct me to where there is legitimate info on this subject. When I talk to my dealer he just shrugs it off. Audi S3 2008

    Thanks Bart

    Can you direct me to the thread, please? Is there a legit form expressing the recall that I can show the garage. There are only 13 S3 in my country. Thanks!!

    Call the garage with your chassis number and they will tell you if you are recalled.

    This was done early this year.

    My old 07 plate 2.0T's coils got done under recall when it was in for its last service in March.
    Just got my 58 plate S3 back from service yesterday but there was no recall for coils or exhaust valve springs as I specifically asked about both.
    When they put your chassis number into their computer it will tell them.
    Hope this helps.

    I had my 2.0T Quattro serviced and in for a cambelt 4 weeks ago at audi and they told me while it was there they changed all the coils free of charge, they didnt say anything about a recall but they were happy to do it.

    However My friend had a 2.0TDI 170 that when they car broke down he took it to audi a few months back (07 plate), audi charged him £850 to sort it out.(just the coils) which seems a bit steep but they did :/

    So id just give them call to check :)

    They changed mine when it was in for a cambelt change a few months ago.
    I didn't have to ask, they just did it.

    Coilpacks on a diesel??

    I can confirm there is no coilpack recall on S3s. I'm having a misfire issue also but it seems to be the plugs rather than the coilpacks (I replaced the coilpacks and it made no difference). I still need to get VCDS on it though.

    Anyone know where I can see documentation of the recall information in order to have proof for the switch at my garage?
