    Sooooo the Crappy Forge pipework saga this week continued.......


    Went to have the EGR pipe fitted to find that the Forge item is TOO BIG and the profile is wrong. When fitted the pipe collapses in on itself making it more restrictive than the standard pipe :aggressive:


    Tried trimming it to make it fit (too late to send back) but it made no difference. End result is I have a new standard pipe on order at a cost of £45..........


    On the plus side the Aldi passed its MOT today with NO advisories :happy:

    Shows how little I do to the Audi compared to my old Golf......

    Had a few issues with it lately
    Downpipe bracket snapped before Christmas leaving two lovely holes in the exhaust. Prospeed in Cardiff did a lovely repair job

    Then just after Christmas my battery died on me. £50 and a bit of swearing later that was sorted

    Had a service in January and then two days later my ESP light came on and stayed on. Scanned it with VCDS and I had the common G201 brake pressure sensor fault. In days gone by that would mean a new ABS pump and an expensive repair bill

    Did some digging and found that VW, Seat and Skoda repair the problem FOC (there is now a repair kit available). Booked it into Audi and had it confirmed as the brake sensor pressure sensor. Cost of £383 to fix

    So I called Audi UK and explained that the 'lesser' brands of the VAG group were offering this repair FOC so why cant Audi. A few phone calls between Audi UK and the dealer and it was agreed to fix the problem BUT I would have to pre-pay £160 for an oil change as my car wasn't bought from a dealer and hasn't been serviced by any dealers. At those prices can you blame me!!

    I reluctantly agreed and so picked my car up yesterday morning. I sat down, paid for some parts I had ordered and signed the warranty claim form. The lady handed me my keys and said goodbye. No mention of paying for the service!!! I left rather quickly!!

    So its time to give it some love. Mate of mine runs a detailing company called Urban Details so its booked in with him at the end of this month :)
