Nice ok sounds like you have a good plan set out for it anyways then, make sure you get them to do the balance shaft delete and install the freewheel not 100% how it’s done but that what they done to mine and it feels so much better and it’s a nice piece of mind to know that can’t happen again...
Awww mate I feel your pain!
I had this happen to me only last September, was driving then that light came on and sounded rough as, I had a Audi specialist take a look at her and found it was the oil pump and balance shaft had gone.
I was lucky tho and they took it all apart and said everything...
So I have just got the car back again and it’s all fixed and lives another day!
The end result was something called a balance shaft sprocket was rattling about!? So the garage fitted an upgraded one and now sounds sweet as a nut so fingers crossed that’s the last repair bill I get for a while
I have no idea really what it could be so she was loaded onto a RAC truck (again) and of to my local Audi specialist to have a look and see what’s wrong with the damn thing but I won’t be spending a fortune on it now as it’s cost me over £2000 in repairs lately
I’ve just had it scanned and no codes come up! I’ve replaced the pcv with a ECS oil catch can and replaced the cam follower to no luck still exactly the same,
Loosing all hope at this stage!
Someone said it could be the evap/n80 valve but it’s the loud clicking/ clunking noise that gets me
I did think it could be to do with the PCV valve so I have a ECS catch can kit I’m half way through putting on and a new breather pipe, I’m also going to change the cam follower at the same time some point this weekend.
I have also just got a OBDeleven through the post so if that doesn’t cure it...
At whits end now more bad things going on with my car!
It’s the TFSI bul engine and today started real rough idle so much it shakes the car abit,
Also making a different noise abit like a knocking noise any ideas most welcome
As the title really, just looking to get a diagnosis tool to make sure everything is running smoothly but with so many on the market I am wondering what is best?
I seen ECS do the Schwaben Professional Audi Scan Tool which lets you do a lot but is rather pricey, so I’m looking for something...
I’m not sure to be honest just on awesome they say there is a delay for the logo to be added not sure why but may go down the spray it on myself route instead of waiting

Yeah that’s the idea I’ve seen some cars with a big silver intercooler and just sticks out like a sore thumb, just not right for what I’m going for.
Where about s did you get yours I saw it on awesome GTI but seen there is a longer delay if you want the logo on it?

I’m thinking as the car is pretty much murdered out it will have to be black intercooler with the black hoses but I do like the idea of having the white logo on the intercooler, always thought that looks pretty cool and will look good through the honeycomb grill

Well I think that settles it then Airtech it is as the ECS one in my opinion doesn’t look as nice and I can’t seem to find much on it as for reviews or pics of people with it, so will go with Airtech ASAP! I have MOT next month so will wait to make sure it passes that first [emoji1695][emoji51]...
I do like the ECS stuff and the kit does look pretty good to me not sure with this one if the crash bar needs cutting doesn’t say it does and by looks of the pictures it doesn’t look like it’s been chopped...
