    has anyone had this fault at around 90k miles ? to mention that is not a permanent fault, just comes on every now and then.

    There has been a few software updates for the c7 including one for steering. Maybe you are just missing the update

    Hi My 2015 FL had a recall inspection at around 6 months old for the rack regarding a seal that could let moisture in done. All was OK and do not know if your car may be due it but worth asking Audi if yours is involved in the recall.

    Regarding the cost the younger adults in my household share a 2007 VW Polo and that developed a electronic steering rack fault requiring replacement. VW wanted over 1200 just for the rack, at the time the car was probably worth about 2500. Got a independent to fit an equivalent rack, all in for 800 so 2000 from the Audi dealer is probably not too bad by comparison
