Angry Help! US Army service member starting to regret my BMW to AUDI switch....

Hey everyone. Ok, the short version...US Army guy, sold my BMW X5 Diesel and bought an Audi Q7 3.6L (2009). Private purchase from out of state seller. Vehicle arrived via transport with multiple issues (None of which existed previously, or so the Seller says)

Not cool.


We are now at Day 12 and cannot pass inspection. Trust me when I say there were 9 more days like Day 1. With a small limited budget and a *new module at $2700, a rebuilt module at $475 part only, can someone kindly help out this US Army service member? I live here in Austin and am desperate to find someone with integrity. Sound advice, honest mechanic, used module....all are needed.

Thank you!

Brink Motorsport is a mechanic a lot of guys in Austin use. Go see Mike and he should be able to help you. Dunno if he does work with parts that are sourced elsewhere.

They're right by Burnet & 183

Owning german automobiles can be fun, but maintaining them is less fun.

Thanks for your service.

As others have recommended Mike at Brink Motorsports should be able to help you out, just make sure to speak to Mike directly.

Another option is Mike at BDTuning in Leander, he's open on Saturdays also which is very useful, he's also a good bit cheaper with his hourly rate.
