They are pushing you aside, it dosent take them a week to find out, all they have todo is authorise it with a service manager or boss and they will sort with audiuk.
That's what my dealer did just cracked straight on with it, 10 day turn around inc consumption test, pcv and update then onto new...
12000 miles on and mines been faultless, but I did have a brand new block, just booking in for the £299 service offer with free mini service 2for1.
I'll run it for another 20k and then move on to something else.
Huddersfield Audi have a great customer service so I highly recommend them, makes me...
I take it, it's the 3.0 supercharged one then it will probably make a slight increase in rpm and lift limiter slightly. I'd advise a uprated pulley for best gains. So yes probably worth it for slightly better time 0-60
Not much, probably 2-300rpm but the turbo will be tailing off by then if stock turbo still fitted so gear change needed to keep the tourque in range.
Hence on these b8 audis not worth it unless rs4/s4 type of cars, all imo of course, but it depends on engine set up. ie diesel, v8, turbo...
The older ones can be done I belive but needs plugging in direct so will need car on ramps.
And imo. I don't think its that useful as I hardly use manual. I just knock it into sport to make most of it.
Ideally, you'd want a new block as I doupt they'd re-hone it and just replace ring, rods and seals which may bring the problem back. Make sure you ask them.
I know a guy who had his 'repaired' and he had a loud tapping noise.
Cheers stonefish, you're a dime. I found them relating to my above part number but I thought it looked like the flat version found on the later years and not the dimpled one that mine has so presumed they were 2 types.
But I've just purchased that one, so cheers mate ;)
hi. I seem to have lost or fallen off the big dial knob 'cover' (maybe during vacuuming?).
But anyways, I need to get a replacement 'kit' they call the. I think. I just want to confirm that it's the correct part number or different as all I could find it from a A5 and looks the flat cover type...
Well 18s will give better handling and comfort on a spirited drive due to more tyre flex and won't be as easy to get a sidewall puncture.
19s will also handle well (not aswell as 18s) but you may or may not notice this, the ride will be a bit firmer too and you'll need a bit more psi...
