Hello i have a audi a8 3.0 tdi quattro 2005 i just had the battery and the alternator changed on it and the throttle body.when i put the ignition on is comes up with the error "battery manegement level" and when it starts on the first spin the engine choke's then it starts or it just spins for 6-8 times before it starts.

Another thing is that sometimes when it starts for about 1 minute it takes out a white-blue smoke the car drives verry good.

Please is there anyone that can help me...i already spent £1000 to change what ever this mechanics have thought is wrong now i just need to be sure...thank you

Oh, and you might find that the battery your mechanic has put in is no good. You can only register the battery to the car if it follows a specific serial number configuration (I think it's 10 digits.) No issues with genuine Audi battery, but it's likely it's a varta or similar which you may run into issues with.

Your car will very likely be in 'power save' mode, which will cause driving issues. I'm not sure of the smoke though. I really can't imagine it being related, but it's certainly worth getting the battery issue sorted and seeing how it runs.

Oh no!

Mine's a Varta, maybe that's why mine is whinging each time too!

Will check the typing
