For sale is my 2004 registered A4 1.8T Sport in Akoya silver with GMBH kit.
I bought the car in 2006 as an Audi Approved vehicle from Docklands Audi. It has covered under 51000 genuine miles in total and has a full service history, mostly from a local VAG specialist. It has MoT until 23...

Mine started misfiring again yesterday on cyls 1 & 2 + a random misfire. Called the AA out (who diagnosed the codes). He swapped the coil pack in cylinder 1 for a new one and the problem appeared to go away. Put the original back in and it had still gone away...
I had a similar problem after an oil & filter change on my 1.8T about 18 months ago. After driving about 15 miles it started misfiring as though one of the coilpacks or spark plugs had failed (it had just had new coilpacks fitted on the 'recall' and I'd fitted new plugs at the same time). The...
Mine's running fine this morning *touches wood*. I really don't know what to think.
