    Default Noobest of the noobies......

    Hi all,

    This is the first i've ever posted to anything!!

    I just bought my first Audi, an A4 B6 2003 Quattro 1.8T.

    Had the APR Stage 1 software flashed in and car rocks.....

    But i think my coil packs have gone, only had the car for 3weeks, hopefully this isn't the start of a nightmare.

    Peace out

    coil packs are a common thing to die when you get a chip (from anybody)... as it places a bit more load on the car that you would have normally had...

    Most of the time it's best to replace all 4.... Keep the old ones (the ones that aren't mibehaving yet) as spares

    Haha welcome mate,

    whered you pick yours up from and where abouts are you?

    did you have the car before the chip?

    welcome to you too dude....

    i got mine from some broker in south melbourne. I live in greenvale (near the airport) but i spend most of my time in south and port mebourne.

    How about you?

    The car was stock when i bought it, it generally is a pretty quick car.

    However once i got the APR Stage 1 software flashed in... my god i didn't realise it would make such a difference. You just gotta do it!!!!

    um not much for about a month really.. i have so much stuff on this month including a pno cruise and my 21st so i kinda have to sort that out first.
    but im thinking probably an exhause and a chip will happen first.. then from there who knows really.
    what have you got in mind for yours?

    do u have any photos of it?

    depends on the sound you want. if you want to keep it stock quiet but get better performance, drop a test pipe or high flow cat in it (will bolt up to stock exhaust). But for a full exhaust id suggest Nuespeed or Miltek
