Glad you got there.

The old is possibly cracked and is water contaminated - that's the usual fail mode

You're right, they're not for a Coupe.

Last time I checked, the dealers were around 190 per side

That's the controller for the idle. Sounds like it's operating outside it's normal range so it can't regulate.

Are you able to measure the current draw on the circuit ?

It was worth a try with the csv. It eliminates it as a possible problem. Harder to start and still running like a dog from cold - do you have the facilities to measure the fuel pressures ?

was this at fast idle only or did it fail both tests ?

It's usually overfuelling that causes it, or rather unburnt fuel in the exhaust.

Even though you say lambda is spot on, does it change or i ...

too much fuel possibly when cold ?

I admire your persistence.

Pretty sure I may have some wiring diagrams for the electric roof somewhere. Will see if I can get them online.

Manual roof diagrams are already online on my website

H & R are one of the better spring manufacturers. Others are PI and Eibach. Not sure if PI are still going.

30-40mm drop on a Coupe will be fine. It's 60mm and higher drops that can lead to problems.

I tend to keep my cars standard so can't recommend any one brand over another.

none of them last long. 3-5 years is typical, sometimes less.

I've yet to see favourable reviews of Meyle products

Those lemforder ones are correct

I'd never heard of the AFC engine until this post.

Research suggests it was only fitted to the A6 so it may be harder to source
