    Went to car today about 5pm (2009 s3 sportback) it turned over but never fired up, gave lots of warning tones and lights ESP ABS no oil no brakes showing no fuel in dis, but there was fuel and no faults when i last drove it on friday.
    i called audi assistance they arrived in about 40 mins, connected car to laptop test show lots of faults all around ecu not connecting to anything else. Unable to fix they are recoving in morning to local audi. Has this happend to anybody else? im sure it wont be a big problem just though id ask you guys. thanks tommy.

    possible failed coil pack caused a fuse to go?

    Hopefully not blown the coil pack driver on the ECU or similar

    Great way of doing bussiness. They'll do anything to sell the premium brand, but when it's time to look after you they don't give a f**k.
    Hope it gets sorted out soon.
