    Late 08 Facelift - Changes

    Hi All,

    Is the late 2008 (facelifted) A3 guaranteed to have the following over the pre facelift models or is there likely to be some cross over in specification?
    • The 170 CR engine (instead of the earlier PD engine).
    • The Gen4 Haldex system (instead of the Gen2 system).
    Cheers,
    Craig

    looking at this Haldex Traction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia the Gen4 was used on the Saab 9-3 turbo X so looks like it is still Gen2

    I'm sure I read somewhere that the facelift S3 had the Gen4 haldex which is why I thought the facelift A3 might too.

    Is there any obvious way of telling when viewing a car that it's a) got the 170 CR engine, and b) which Haldex version its equipped with?

    Cheers,
    Craig

    Facelifted S3 definitely has GenIV Haldex and seeing as the same system was used in Tiguans at around the same time it stands to reason A3q would have the upgrade as well.

    There's a quick identifier in the part numbers to help identify between GenII and GenIV, but I can't recall what it is.
