    Hello
    I have the 2.0fsi engine in my a3 and sometimes on cold mornings the car will judder, have done some research into this and it seems its directly related to faulty/worn out coil packs, it actually seems quite common in all the vag cars with the 2.0 fsi engine. Has anyone had this problem or knows hows much its going to cost me getting these replaced? The car is out of warrenty,(04 plate, 59k) so don't know wether to take it to a local garage because they can possibly do it cheaper. i will be very greatful for any replies!

    They are between 20 and 30 quid each. I'd always get genuine ones and fit them yourself, they are dead easy!

    Your car sounds like only one might be failing, you need it hooking up to vag com to see which one but if they are on the way out its probably best to replace all 4.

    If you do a search on here, there is a guide, it might be for the S3, but i think its the same.....

    Only about £30 each, and make sure you get the genuine ones from Audi, cant go wrong with them, bit more than copies, but worth it.
