I'd love to see him roll into the dealer in that beast and ask them to cover his rear diff under warranty.Sorry to hear that.
What' the old and new part number for Haldex and Differential?
I saw a post on face book who have same issue and he got replacement by dealer.
5.5kg? As in how much it weighs? It was 94lbs not 12 lbsHaldex 5 is like what? 5.5kg? Designed to be efficient, effective, a save weight? I wouldn't expect it to handle too much power. The twinster in the RS can overheat with stock power and goes into limp mode after a lap with an engine tune. They aren't designed for stage 3 abuse. DD, no problem. This guy abuses cars.
I had a rear diff blow on a MK6R that was only S1 UM + the rear driveshaft - not sure where you get that correlation just because it didn't happen to you must mean it has never happened? :screwy::thumbdown:So for all you saying I abuse the car, how come there are reports and first hand accounts of this exact code happening on stock cars. do your research before bashing. My friend's completely stock 2015 A3 had the same failure. And if you searc, others had the same issue on stock R's as well. I had a mk6 golf r that I launched all the time, never had an issue. Never been able to get this car to launch because it is 6 speed
