Are these switches from the Audi dealer or aftermarket switches.
I recommend the dealer switches since sometimes the aftermarkets are not as
well built! BUT sometimes even the dealer stuff will have problems.

its a problem ive had. the ignition switch is a problem with these
modles. and sadly it burnt out my starter and so i had to replace that
costing an extra 300. simply just buy it from the dealer and not
aftermarket.

Yes. This type of switch is VERY sensitive to excessive keyring
wieght. Dump all the flashlights, Swiss Army knives, bottle openers,
nightsticks. etc. Just keys, two or three at most.
