    Hi all, just a quick one really, well 2 quick ones!
    First off, a couple of weeks ago we took a trip to shell island in North Wales, (lovely place, would highly recommend) any way, all was well until I had driven over the hills and come to a junction at which the car wanted to cut out and started shaking and idling all over! the eml came on but the car pulls away ok, feels a little edgy to drive if you know what I mean but hunts for idle when at a standstill, when we got home Bradford Audi sorted the recall Ignition Coils and the problem is still there, after reading a few threads im starting to think it could be a vac leak?? Any Ideas?
    Also the most bloody annoying thing is the key fob, It had a new battery last month but now it locks only when it can be bothered. sometimes locks by fob but then refuses to open and visa versa, it can go days without problems. Its so frustrating walking off from your car pressing away only to walk back and lock it by the key like something from the olden days!
    Any help is hugely appreciated
    thanks Dave,
    Ha forgot to say its a A4 1.8t sport cab on an 05.

    1st off avoid north wales might be lovley
    but you never know what your car will pick up
    could be a air leak maybe the MAF
    have you had it scanned ?
