    Since I got my 1.8 t avant 03 off my dad it's always been on 2 cyl. Have bought 6 coilpacks and just had sparks done (good ones). 8 months of duff acceleration and wasting money is getting a bit tiresome. I love the car but am new to Audi ownership and not sure if I would ever go out and choose one? Any advice is welcome as to helping with my poorly car.

    Is it really running on just two cylinders? I doubt the car would even be able to drag itself along if that was the case!

    Why did you buy 6 coil packs?

    Have you had a proper scan to try and diagnose the problem?
