Exclamation 05 A8 died on the highway todayz

Driving down the local highway, just getting off work and the car jerked a little then the engine died completely. No warning light nothing. j
Just acted as if it wasn't getting any fuel. It's at the dealer now, I'll pass on what they find.

That's sucks make sure they replace the filter while they're at it.

Also if your have a full size spare on a matching rim make sure they don't switch it out on you with a dough-nut tire like they did to me!

Wait what? Someone took out your spare tire and gave you a donut instead? Did you raise hell or what!?

^^^

he made a thread on it around here somewhere. dealer was in a different state/area/region from where he is and he didn't notice it right away. he threatened action but it seemed like it turned into a fruitless war of words. never did hear if there was any resolution.

Here is the thread about it
