Why are you getting it done?
Fair enough, will be interesting to see how the car is after the update, hopefully all will be good.I typically own my vehicles a long time, so eventually the recall work will happen. I'd rather "get it over with", than have to worry about the recall work being done secretly (I have 4 years prepaid services, plus 2 additional services paid by VAG). Avoiding Audi dealers is not an option for me, for this reason. Also, unconfirmed reports indicate that the "Ontario Drive Clean" program (emissions certification required to renew your car's plate every 2 years) requires vehicles affected by this well-known scandal and recall, and for whom a recall fix is available, to have the work done before they'll issue a renewal. A special sticker is affixed under the hood by Audi to certify the recall work has been done, and the vehicle is now compliant with emissions laws.
And lastly, I'd rather not have my vehicle produce excessive, dangerous emissions if I can help it.
