exhaust blowing / extended turbo lag
Can anyone advise me or have had this same problem?
exhaust sounds like its blowing/bit louder but took it to 2 garages including audi specialist who couldnt find anything wrong with exhaust.
called audi but they said 85 p/h to look at and i thought........
Turbo kicks in a few hundred later as well.
the exhaust sounds worse at cold and on idle it dips up and down a little.
theres definately something wrong but i dont know.
your rev counter has increments in hundreds?

it poping like a rally car aswell? mine went similar (on old golf), after going thro puddle. long time ago, but think it was a dead maf.
sounds very similar to what you describe
thanks guys for the advice.
will look into the maf as i think thats pretty cheap to replace.
trying to do everything i can first before having to take to audi.
