At a guess, none

In all seriousness I think it says somewhere they will only change coils that have not been replaced already with the correct/acceptable parts.

I've replaced one on the A6 before, with another new one spare in the boot after finding how bad a car drives with a duff coil pack

Swindon Audi have advised me that my A4 does not qualify for the "recall" but they couldn't check my 8 out on the system as it was having a bit of a tiff with them when they asked it lol I will give them the chassis no tomorrow and hopefully get an answer here

Phoned Audi UK, and my 02 plate S8 doesn't qualify, but it does have a recall on the 'shift leaver' that's overdue since 2008! Will get that booked in - sounds like it's the park thing that's mentioned on American sites.

Mine was EXACTLY the same response! Believe the recall is to check to make sure the lever won't get jammed in park. Given my current dramatics getting my car out of the garage (pushing it in and out manually) it doesn't bare thinking about the consequences if it jammed in park! I have to reach in with a pole to push the brake pedal down to get it in neutral.....

lol - very good!

My pole also extends to reach those spots usually out of reach to the normal arm - add further innuendo as appropriate

I should video it - have to get someone to help though! If the battery goes flat I'm also buggered as I need the windows to wind down on the remote before I can put the key in the ignition!!

I guess worst case scenario would be trolley jack under the back end somewhere to lift the wheels off the deck and yank it out avoiding the garage sides in the process
