    The belt/chain situation confuses a lot of owners and not just independent but main dealers!!
    I would check that the two cam chain tensioners are being replaced with the new parts and even push for a new chain. There's a tensioner fitted at the bottom and top of the engine. It's normally the lower that fails due to oil pressure. There are auxiliary belts however they won't cause catastrophic damage as a cam chain tensioner failing...
    Once fixed the engine and car are fantastic. I'm glad I stuck with it as my car has a 2 yr warranty on the parts fitted and 4 yrs free servicing. How many 4 yr old Audis get that from a main dealer...?

    I think it is misfiring, its lumpy on tick over. I was going to whip the spark plugs out and have a look...I was also going to see if I can get my hands on a scope too and look because if the scoring is heavy its most likely a engine swap no?

    My car failed both the 1st and second test. Audi Sheffield advised me without any quibbles etc that they would need to carry out the piston/conrod fix which would be done entirely FOC. Booked in for next month :)
