well a good question to ask is where did you purchase this battery ? im willing to bet if you did not by it from a vw or audi dealer you probly got the wrong one or a bad one. Do your self a favor take that battery out take it back get your money back. Then grab your old battery go to vw or audi dealer ship and buy a brand new one from them. they will give you the right battery and a brand new never been rebuilt one for like 129$ canadain on my end. then try your car out oh and make sure you tighten the posts and check all your grounds. make sure they are tight and clean.
