[Audi A3/S3] Misfire of doom


Recommended Posts

After scraping the ice off my car at 7.45 this morning I started yhe engine only to find that it had a nasty misfire. The familiar smell of the cat pouring out sulphur smells and the noise told me one thing.....coil pack rocketwhore.gif

I drove (misfiring like hell) to Leicester Audi (formerly Reg Vardy Audi sportifs2.gif) and arrived at 8.15. The bloke on reception said that as a matter of course all four coil packs were now changed even though this was my fourth failure and the other three had been replaced.

8.30 I am handed my keys and told that the job has been done. Fantastic service from a dealer that I used to have no faith in at all. Clearly the change from Vardy to John Fox has had a major impact and a more customer friendly approach has been implemented.

At least the coil packs shouldn't fail any more.......... ha.gif
