    Hi all,

    My A3 needs a diagnostics check and service as my glowplug and emissions controls lamps are showing on the instrument panel :( Neither Bury St Edmunds Audi or Cambridge Vindis Audi can take my car until the 20th or 23rd of this month by which time the problem(s) could be a hell of a lot worse.

    Anyone know of any qualified independents in Cambridge/Newmarket/Bury St Edmunds who can perform Audi diagnostics and maybe fix the problem? I really need someone good, not a chancer :yes:

    Thanks.

    Thanks eatdegrub, had to call Audi roadside assistance this morning because of loss of power in the car. They've organised a hire car and are putting it into the garage, a problem with Piezo injector #4. According to the guy who was out with us, this is a known problem on the early CR engines (like mine).

    I'll keep the D-tech details to hand though! :)

    Surely if your A3 has a CR diesel engine it must be less than 3 years old and is therefore covered by warranty. If you take it to a dealer and they find something wrong it will be sorted under warranty. If you take it to an independent garage they will not be able to sort it under warranty.
