I've just taken my car in to the dealer for the water pump recall and have been told that they are also doing a software upgrade, but the receptionist had no idea what the upgrade was about.

My car is a 2.7D auto Sportback January 2010 and this is its first upgrade. Does anyone have any idea of the changes I can expect?

Thanks Guys

Does that recall only apply to that engine? I have a 2.0TFSI June 2011 and am not aware of any recall?

Well, I got the car back from Chelmsford Audi on Saturday.

The water pump was changed and the software update down. Drove a couple of hundred miles yesterday and everything feels the same, so still not sure what the update was for. The dealer said bug fixes, but didn't really seem to know.

The only problem now is that they cleaned the car (without my authorisaton) and it now has several hairline scratches right across the bonnet where they presumably had some grit in their cloth.

I've reported it and they have said they will have a look, but I will try some Meguiars first. Otherwise, they have some serious polishing to do.

This is the same dealer that applied Autoglym (when my car was still in the showroom) without drying the bonnet properly, leaving a whole series of watermarks under the surface. These had to be machine polished out and the Autoglym reapplied. Unfortunately their machine polishing left a series of circular swirls, and I ended up taking the car to a specialist detailer to sort it out (at my cost).

Uuugh, I hate Audi dealers.
