    Once one goes, it puts extra strain on the other coil packs. You should change them all.

    Check with Audi though as there is a recall on all petrol Audis. You may get your coil packs changed free of charge.

    No that shouldn't be necessary. All that you will need to make sure is that the coil packs are still genuine Audi ones. If they are aftermarket they will not replace them.

    my car does qualify for the replacement to be done by audi but i live in shetland and the closest audi dealer is in aberdeen so i would have to go on the boat and return with a car is over £200:mad: so ive just ordered a set off awsome gti. hope thy dont go again:/

    If coil packs are going I would also check your plug gap... advisable to go to a 0.7mm gap with a remap... had a Leon in once that had 1mm gaps!!! needless to say it nuked a coil pack or two on the dyno!!...

    Bigger??!!??... that would be a big NO... larger gap makes the coil packs work harder and shorten thier life plus increase boost/cylinder pressures from the remap would blow the spark out...

    Std gap is 0.8mm, remapped go for 0.7mm
