Some of you might have seen the saga with my A3:
We are now evaluating the option of putting a new engine into it, as money-wise audi have taken such a chunk from me I can't afford to keep guessing with it.. I was wondering if anyone knew of anyone who is selling/might be likely to have, a good, working, 1.6 engine (code AVU)
Also, does anyone have any idea how much one of these engines is likely to cost? I've heard this code is pretty rare.
Alternately, does anyone know if it would be possible to fit one of the (more common) AKL engines into this model, and if it is possible, what compatability issues might arise?
If anyone else has done this before I'd be really grateful for any advice.
I'm going to be doing the usual ringing round breakers yards etc on my hunt, but any ideas from anyone would be extremely well recieved.
