I've just joined this forum as I am planning to replace my 2005 Focus Ghia 1.6 Ti-VCT with a A3 1.9 / 2.0 TDi. The focus has been a good car, but is drinking too much (partly due to my heavy right foot) - averaging about 32MPG, and it seems so slow to me.
I've been told by various people to go for the 1.9 as the 2.0 is unreliable and has a tendancy to blow up - is there any truth to this?
I don't know much about Audis in general, but are there any specific models that I should avoid?
I am also considering putting a Bluefin on it, although I have seen mention on here of something called "custom code" but didn't find much about it on Google.
EDIT: I've also seen that the 2.0 TDi 170PS has problems with the DPF, and the ECU needs to be 'unlocked' so I think I will avoid the 170PS unless anyone can tell me otherwise?
EDIT 2: I've seen a lot of mention of CR and PD engines - Can anybody provide a link detailing the differences cheers!
