Hello everyone, I'm new here, I have been reading a lot of useful threads over past couple of weeks since purchasing my grey 2005 sportback 2.0 tdi sport 140? It has the half leather and Bose upgrade . I had the same engine in my previous 2008 gt tdi and I must say the engine was a lot quieter than the audi , or maybe the sound proofing may be better in the golfs.
The car has a shaking issue when at idle, sometimes its vague, sometimes its not shaking and it makes no difference whether the clutch is up or down, I've read a number of different things that it could be , the rpm's are stable even when the car shakes which I guess could suggest that it could be mounts. I'm from east London and I'm hoping to find someone localish with vagcom equipment to see if anything shows up .
Anyway the plan is once the fault is fixed it to get it to 235bhp as I did with my golf , also the newer 18/19 inch rotor alloys will be going on to.
