    Just now, had a 2012 Audi A4 2 litre TFSI in running badly, 99K miles and chains jumped... yes it has stop start and he told me it "went funny" after it started up at a junction the other morning. Yes chains do tend to jump just at start up as that is when the oil pressure drops to zero, so if you massively increase the number of starts per journey, the likelihood of chain jumping will increase exponentially. Yes... interesting point Gaz. If us old buggers think back, weren't we always being told that the worse time for an engine was just as it starts?

    Well I am 70 in June and I can still remember being taught that back in the days when everything was in black and white and a bit oily.

    You should see what it does to the flywheel ring gear, never seen ring gear wear like it in 40 years!
    Changed my ring gear many years ago on my Ford Anglia! I was under the impession that most modern cars have the starter somehow already engaged with the flywheel to avoid ring gear damage!

    Although I have DSG and stop/start on my Alltrack I was always impressed that the car knew when the lights were changing to green and started the motor! I now realise that the ACC sensor on the front of the car senses that the car in front moves so then starts the motor for me!
