    Are these readings right??

    2003 a3 2.0tdi
    i have been fine tuning the cams to cure a vibration and bad idle! The car seems to be runnin okay now at 800 rpm!
    I have set the front cam (closest to radiator) to 0.0 kw (torsion value) the rear cam i adjustet untill the car idles smooth! Now i read somewere the consumption should be around 0.6 l/h and the engine torque no lower than 28nm! Now my readings are: 0.6l/h-0.4l/h
    and stays at 0.4 l/h when fully warm! And my engine torque moves around from 28-32nm does this sound okay? Also my torque request (driver) is -2.0nm! Are all these readings okay and normal or is there something wrong?

    The lower the l/h reading the leaner the mix at idle, nothing wrong with that. I wouldn't worry about the other readings, as long as the car is running ok don't worry

    When one thing goes wrong on a car it can be easy to over analyse everything else that you hear/feel etc, chances are these things were there already but you hadn't noticed to the other issues.

    Your best bet is to run the car for a good few hundred miles so it can 'settle' with its new adjustments & chances are 90% will rectify themselves
