    Your car insurance co.

    With some, you can claim for mechanical failures as well as accidents.

    I've heard of it, but never actually done it myself. As you say, it has to be worth looking into.

    I knew someone claim for a blown engine - threw a rod when he drove through a pool of water IIRC! but that was many moons ago.

    Even so, maybe the insurance co can get Audi to pay out? They're the ones that gave it a clean bill of health.

    I'd certainly be exploring the possibility anyway. :)

    What did ECU testing say about it? What was the reason it was unable to be fixed?

    Phone audi, they should tell you if your car has, had or requires any recalls.

    Cheers Dan

    Not bad. At least you're up n running again. Hopefully it's a revised unit they replaced it with.
