Be Warned

Post by Dave_Hedgehog » Wed Sep 18, 2013 4:07 pm

Audi are investigating the intermittent fault to my gearbox

They want my car in for a modifications inspection, incl ecu replacement

As if I would mod it after my last cars engine blew up

They need to sort these terrible brakes they have put in my car rather than messing me about ... :(

Apparently the ecu has an encrypted serial that flags a red code when plugged into the dealers vag unit, if it's missing (ie been flashed)

They said the tech guy coming down can tell if the ecu or the chip has been changed

I can't verify any of this but they do want to check it

Mines stock so I am not bothered, it is a hassle thou

It's not been inspected yet

Audi's customer service for me has always been beyond excellent.

It makes changing brand very very hard
