Evening all, My 2014 S3 PFL, unmodified car threw an engine management light, which has pointed to a failure in the swirl flaps within the inlet manifold. I took it into Audi in Bristol who confirmed the diagnosis made by my local specialist. The remedy is to replace the entire inlet manifold. Having taken out a named component extended warranty last year, I assumed I was in a good position. Turns out that is not the case. The claim has been rejected as the inlet manifold is not listed within the named components. Within the booklet under the section of what is included it writes: "Engine: All internal components; timing belt and tensioner; turbocharger; supercharger; all solid-state sensors and control units (including immobiliser ECU) of the engine management system including supply relays; ignition switch; petrol or diesel injection lift pumps; fuel injectors and fuel pipes; starter motor; starter motor relay; alternator; water pump; thermostat; and engine mountings." On the face of it, inlet manifold is not listed, but admittedly, I feel incredibly miffed that an integral part of the engine assembly is not included. It is not like it is an ancillary - I guess I see it as integral to the 'engine' as the cylinder head or the sump - neither of which are listed. Both are also bolted to the block. I wondered on your thoughts and perhaps experience? I bought the warranty in good faith to protect against such failures - believing that it would cover the bigger ticket items (engine, gearbox, steering, water pump), but not to fix such things as electric accessories or any comfort-related equipment. Absolutely devastated that they are not seemingly willing to accept. Audi want £778 to replace the inlet manifold.
