    went to collect my car, I was told my car was now running lumpy / like ****e............ ??
    they gonna order a loom to correct this problem, phone call today at 4pm & injector 2 is coming up fail on the code scan machine !
    This injector hasn't ran for an hour !!
    so still no car back yet, not too down tho as they supplied me with pool car .................

    Great News :)

    Ive used Wearside Audi in the past, and theyve always been spot on.

    I don't know why people keep saying this recall makes the car smoother/quieter. It just doesn't. Mine is absolutely identical to how it was before now quieter no louder, starts exactly the same, runs exactly the same. Yours must have ran like a bag of ****e previously if you can notice any difference at all thats all i can think of.

    I think it's mostly placebo, however I think the injectors are noisier! Like tappet noise.
