    A3 TDI mods?

    I've got an A3 2.0 TDI and 140bhp I've had it remapped and was wondering what the next step is I could take to make it even faster!

    Unless you want to go down big power figures and change your turbo, there isn't much else you can safely get out of these cars.

    A front mount intercooler, down pipe, full system exhaust and maybe an air filter to grab a few extra bhp but nothing that will be ear pinning back speed!

    I would personally pay attention to the handling and braking - uprated roll bars, anti lift kit, lowering, uprated bushes, big brake kit.

    What year is your car? Maybe some styling mods?

    I've read about the "anti lift" kit; is this the front wishbone rear bush? Is it a geometry change, and how does it stop "lift"?

    It's a 2009 (59) Black Edition.
    If I was to change the turbo I'd need a better clutch right?

    I have often wondered the same thing. The best mod you can do has been done. If it is more speed you are after get a 170ps or a petrol is really the best options for you. Petrol 4wd will be the route I am going down for my next car. Evo or s3 is what im after
    Audi A3 Black Edition 2.0 Tdi DSG - Black Audi rings - Private plate - RS3 grill - C Quartz ceramic coating - Stage 1 remap - 50mm H&R Springs - SOLD

    MY11​ Imola Yellow S3 - Black Edition - DSG - RNS-E - Sunroof - RS3 grill - H&R 25mm springs - Shark Performance stage 1
