    How many injectors were replaced? 4 (as far as I know)
    Was injectors wiring also replaced? Yes
    Cost to you: Nil - warranty/VW Roadside Assist for towing and repairs.
    Date when failed second time: Don't encourage it.

    More details(optional).

    Inconsistent info from dealer who repaired - first told it would take a few days, then a week, then told again that it would be ready that day (after 3 days). Unable to get replacement car from either dealer (booked out) or VW (not more than 100km from home). Dealer didn't replace engine cover clips, which were found missing on next service done about 6 weeks later (still need to work that out, however the dealer which fixed it isn't exactly convenient to get to). Still consider it ridiculous that engine doesn't at least have a limp-home mode.
