    Just had the DPF warning come up, no coils with the warning, so was able to do the regeneration.
    Totally different car to drive now.

    Nice motor mate and neat little mods.

    Love the steering wheel, how much did that set you back?

    Also have you ever thought about the s-line rear spoiler and wind deflectors?

    Nice car and nice colour.

    Owning a car with the same engine and considering your mileage is over 150,000.

    Make sure the DSG oil has been changed with a new filter
    I have a 56 plate, and Injectors are on recall from Audi, so they will check these for free for you, if your model comes within the recall bracket (If they haven't already been done that is)

    Finally, enjoy it!!! It's a great car, good choice
