OMG...please, you're over thinking this.

1) Drive to Audi or TPS
2) Give them this part number 8E0 951 253 and say I'll have 2 of those please.
3) They'll say that part has been replaced by XYZ part.
4) You say, that's fine I'll have 2 of those then please.
5) Pay the man.
6) Go fit them to your car, replacing the 2 existing 614 relays.

Trust me it will be fine, I have swapped them myself. As have many others.

You have asked for advice on a few issues now and I get that it’s frustrating but <beep> me, listen to what experienced folk are telling you about issues they have dealt with.

Cheers :thumbs:

I get what your saying, but when Audi tell me something else you cant blame me for asking question lads ? ok so went to Audi in person, the bloke can hardly speak English so that wasn't a great start, then they only had 1 relay in stock ffs so just my luck, I got the one which indeed has 644 printed onto it, so as I can only get the one, and the fact I only have one audi dealer near me and to be fair that's 40 minutes away, which one of the two do I change ? the middle one or the one on the right protruding further out ?

And I do appreciate the help, but I am a master builder, ask me anything about building I am your man, as for cars I know nothing so yes I get your advising me but it don't help when Audi tell me something different so fairs fair, would appreciate knowing which to change and I will do it in the morning, cheers

No one is blaming you for asking questions. Out of the lads on here and some fanny at Audi, I know which one I would be listening to.

Hope you get it sorted and get her back on the road.

Quick update as this may help others in the future....

Replaced all the 3 relays under the ECU, and so far in the last 2+ months the car intermittent starting issue has not happened again. From what I gather this issue is pretty common yet no one usually knows how to fix the issue. Obviously I am not saying it cant be other things but replacing the 3 relays seems to have fixed my issue. Ive probably jinxed myself now haha but fingers crossed. Cheers for all advice previously given
