    CEL at 1500 miles. Engine misfire.

    Stock car. Light came on while cruising around. Dealer first emptied gas tank and changed spark plugs, refueled but this didn't fix the issue. They say now it is engine misfire. Hopefully will just require a software update. Anyone else had this problem?

    Coilpack no doubt. Every VAG car I've ever had has popped one at some point. I keep a $22 spare in the trunk lol.

    sorry forgot to update. been crazy around here.

    got the car back a day later. they basically emptied the fuel tank and refilled and light went away. don't recall that one particular cylinder was misfiring or not. will update if occurs again, though.

    in the meantime- my OEM original titanium 20" wheels in perfect condition are still for sale!

    spoke too soon. control module malfunction light went on yesterday and then the CEL. dropping her off this saturday. this didn't occur before.

    car is stock. only 100 miles since last problem. also making weird click when turning into driveway from front and underside of car. no clue.

    i use all kinds of gas just like i did with my two previous R8's- Shell when i can but many others also. Do the same with the S4 and SVR and both have been bullet proof.
