    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.
