Calling all those A3 2.0 TDI (140) owners ... Mine is a 2007 sportback s-line and was wondering how long it "should" take to warm up to the 90 degrees ?
I drive mine nice and gentle but it takes about 7-10 miles, approx 10-12 mins before it is getting anywhere near to 90 and this was before it got real cold outside ... this is mainly 30mph roads up to this point driving in 5th and 6th gear (if I manage to hit the traffic lights at the right time).
Just wondered if this is normal ? My previous car (Subaru STi) got up to temp (well the dial said it was up to temp) in just a few mins ...
Anyone got one the same ? or is my thermostat stuck open ?
