    How do. On the way how my bam s3 was struck down and went into limp mode, felt like it was misfiring like a *******, as if it was running one less cylinder, intermittent engine light flashing, heavy vibration felt even when idling, classic coil pack failure?

    Indeed it was, whipped some new ones in this morning, back to normal, had a massive brown alert when it happened, broken heart syndrome set in, fingers crossed that's all it was

    Yep, I've had it happen 3 times now, once where 2 were playing up. An S3 on 2 cylinders isn't good! So all 4 have been replaced. First time was a bit 'oh my god, what's gone wrong...'
    Ever the optimist, I also carry a spare in the boot as first time one went (late Saturday afternoon) AA man said 'I normally have these on the van but I've used my supply so can't get any more until Monday' - so I had to be towed home.
