A4 at 42,518 miles

posted to 1999.5 audi a4 1.8t quattro on jul 12th, 2002 with tags a4 and cars

took the car back to laurel to have the mileage fixed. they had to replace the instrument cluster again since the mileage can't be rolled backwards once it's set. had them look at the exhaust; they said they can't fix it under warranty since it's an aftermarket cat-back system and that i should take it somewhere else. they must have done something to it since the deep rattle immediately became accompanied by a more annoying "tinny" rattling between 2000-3000 rpm. i brought the car to midas where they agreed that there are two rattles; a "tinny" one from the front, and one from the back. they repositioned the piping to fix the one from the back, but said the "tinny" one from the front was from the catalytic converter and would have to be taken to audi to get fixed. guess it's back to laurel next week...
