    Any blue\white fur or other signs of corrosion?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    No, none at all. My customer put it back together so I could get it home. The ECU smelt bad again.

    I tried calling, then emailing the ECU Doctor, but have had no response, so I'm looking at Cartech Electronics for a replacement and recode.

    If a new ECU doesn't fix it, I'm afraid it'll be on eBay :-(

    The ECU is in a sealed aluminium case and if it got hot enough to smell you would find it with your finger ends! It is more likely that it is the ECU relay which is getting hot and this is in the same box. If it had a fault that WAS making the ECU overheat then it is likely that you would just damage a new one. Instead of just randomly changing parts, why not spend that money on some professional VAG experienced diagnostic work?

    Two diagnostic companies not answering emails, but the ECU has tested ok.

    Suspected 5v shorting to earth in the loom. There is a bit of the loom outer broken behind the engine, we're going to strip that back and have a look.

    ECU refitted, everything worked ok for a couple of miles. No sign of any problems as far as I can trace them.

    It's been a bloody good car and doesn't really owe me much, so it's on eBay for Spares/Repair.

    I'm about to descend to a single VAG car :-)
