It has been a while since I've been here, and I hope that everyone had
a great holiday season. Anyway, on to Audi type stuff...
I had both diverter valves replaced, and requested that the dealership
use the diverter valves from the 225hp TT. (Bosch 06A145710N). Some
Audiworld articles indicated that they were better than the stock
valves. The dealership agreed to use them....those fellas at Fred
Baker are great. The engine response is much improved. The car would
hesitate under cold weather conditions the first time any acceleration
was required (i.e. pulling out of the driveway). That symptom is now
I also had both rear wheel bearings replaced. They got noisy and
began to hum loudly. I have about 67k miles on the vehicle...
All this work for $50 under the Audi Assured warranty. =)
Have a great New Year!
