wow great info. regarding: "On an A4 1.8l turbo AEB code engine this part
has a very high failure rate due in part, I believe, to its location near
the turbocharger/catayst exhaust heat--I have had two fail at low miles on
other A4s in my family. "

is the part you're referring to the coil pack or the output stage? the
bentley doesn't have much info that i've found on how to test [with a vom]
the various ignition parts. mine has a slight miss, and pulls timing under
boost [5-10psi]. i've assumed the ignition bits are ok since mechanics tell
me that if it's not throwing codes there's no fault, but with 150k and as
far as i can tell it's all original, it's gotta be worn.
