    Diesel Engines....

    Does anyone know if Audi are planning to drop the 2.5 or 3.0 TDI engines into the A3 and if not why not? I would guess maybe a size issue with the 3.0l but the i think the 2.5 would be quite nice! It'd certianly have some poke. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    All engines in an A3 are transverse. There is a longitudinal version of the 3.2 for A4,A6 and A8 also.

    Its a totally different engine, not just a version for longitudinal installations.

    ...and if you're really having wet dreams of a longitudinal 3.2 VR6, then you have to go to Cayenne ;-)

    I'm sure I read somewhere that the it's a narrow angle V in the A3 3.2, and a wide angle V in the A4/A6/A8 3.2.

    Fortunately VW manged to use the mkIII Golf as the test bed for this engine - the early ones where plagued with problems - head gaskets failures, head's cracking, over heating etc but they sorted it all out and it's been great since...
