How can determine the engine version?
I have no idea, I'm just looking at getting a new A3 as my 53 (8P) seems to developing every fault going lately. I was looking at a Mazda 3 Sport 2.2d but then I read about DPF issues and I thought I'd check to see if other engines suffer.
Is it a lottery whether it's PD or CR or is an age thing? I was looking for a post 58 plate, for the face lift.
Danny is right...the PD140 had no DPF unless it was specified on manufacture. The CR140 however have them fitted as standard I believe, but are not dogged with problems like the 170 version.
