Hey everyone, newbie in the house, found my way over here from searching on Pistonheads, so hopefully you'll be able to help me out. I've had a search through the A3 forums here already and haven't been able to find what I'm looking for, so apologies if I've missed it.
I'm only querying this because of my past experiences with VW/Audis. I used to drive my mum's 1.4 Polo (52 plate) and it always ran with the temp gauge back on the middle at 90 deg C.
I then got my own car in June 2007, a 1.8 T Audi A3 (2000, W plate), and I absolutely love it.
Over the last couple of months I've noticed that, no matter how long I drive for (sometimes up to 2 hrs non stop) the temp gauge never goes about 80deg C. Even after a good thrashing, the temperature never reaches the middle 90 figure.
So my question is, has anyone else experienced this before, is it much of a problem and if so, how can it be rectified?
