Give your dealer a call and find out if your effected.

I'm sure my LPG injectors obstruct the coils though...

Thinking ahead for a potential remap at Revo; I'm guessing replacing these and the plugs would be a must before the new map?

Well this is properly wierd - rang my local dealer and my A6 3.0 QS Avant IS covered by the recall, however my S8 is not

Need to ring Audi and find out why as was certain it would be the other way round!!

Anyone have access to the necessary data that can check my VIN?

Apparently the S8 has an outstanding recall for something to do with a door lock?!

I emailed Audi UK last night asking if my 2002 S8 was eligible and what other models are effected. Not holding my breath for a reponse.

Probably with giving them a call and finding out what the official word is.

Yeah, I just did that after posting - their system gives the same info as the dealer, so not eligible.

The outstanding S8 recall is actually to check for a faulty Park position sensor - it can jam and prevent the car being taken out of Park. Given how tricky my garage access is at the moment, that doesn't bare thinking about!

I've got the A6 booked in for a week Friday, so will book the S8 in when I'm there.

Wonder if there's anything nice I could test drive while they're fixing mine?!

I had to have my coil packs replaced when they went a couple of years ago, I got the work done at Audi and still have the receipt.

Whats the chances that if mines the bad ones they will reimburse me?
