    Hey guys and girls! Sorry to post a wanted thread in here, I can't post up in the wanted section so hence this post.

    Recently bought myself a 98 A3 1.8t weekend before last! Drove it home with no issues however once home it was in limp mode! It's in a friends garage at the moment, they've checked the whole car over. It threw up camshaft position sensor a couple of times, they replaced the sensor, cleared the error codes and as soon as they turned ignition on, it threw up the same fault code!

    So it's suspected that the ecu might be faulty! It's got a motech remap which the previous owner had done.

    I'm after an ecu, standard or mapped but require one ASAP! Haven't even had the car home 2 weeks and it's already in the garage! :( got loads of goodies waiting to go on it too! Will be posting a new member/build thread up once the cars sorted so keep an eye out!

    Got cash waiting (but not looking to get bent over a barrel haha) so someone come to my rescue please haha!

    Great and very friendly/helpful forum from what I've seen so far guys!

    Cheers, Josh aka Dibdub1
    Cheers, Josh.

    I'd be checking the wiring. ECU's are typically pretty hardy things.

    Yeah it's a bit of a bizarre one aragorn!

    Cheers coatesy, just thought I'd ask in here too as I'd prefer to buy one from someone on here as I'd need it sent next day delivery lol!

    Thanks guys! Anyone else?

    It's more than likely physical cam timing out, get that checked as that throws a cam sensor code
