    See if you can get them changed as part of the the Audi recall... if you have to buy them only buy genuine VAG ones and use the push down not the bolt down ones on yours..

    You can use the Hitachi (Beru) bolt downs if you can get hold of them. I have them on mine, euro and gsf seem to have replaced the Hitachi (Beru) with Bremi's, not sure if these are as good

    Bremi's are rubbish and there shouldn't be anything wrong with the new push downs... Have seen problems with bolt downs too so no easy answer its your choice... I personally with continue to replace mine with push downs...

    If you have the latest ones I would check your plugs before replacing the coil packs... 0.7mm gap..
