    How do i tell if my audi is a 140 cr or 170 cr TDI (NEW SHAPE 09 A3)

    How do i tell if my audi is a 140 cr or 170 cr TDI (NEW SHAPE 09 A3)


    I orderd a 140 cr from thec leasing company yet they made a few mistakes and i ended up getting another vehicle in black, now al the documentation has come from audi finance in finding that it says 170 tdi . So im thinking i may have got the high powered engine over the 140 i orderd and paid for.

    Is there any way i can check what engine is in the car by a code or chassis number or something, dont really trust the audi finance documentation.

    The cars a 58 reg btw First of the current facelift shape.

    Isn't there a sticker on the floor of the boot (under the carpet) that will give you a figure in Kw or PS for the power of the car. If it is in KW, convert it to BHP using (1kw = 1.34 BHP), so it should be 127 or 128Kw for the 170bhp version. If it is lower than that you know it is a 140bhp one. PS and BHP are all but the same.

    If its a facelift then surely its a common rail... dont think they produced any of the facelifts with the non common rail engines in.

    Kaz - the facelift 140's now have straight out exhaust tips same as the 170 so there isn't any visual difference between the 2 engines now that I know of

    The figures quoted on the Data Sticker are 103kW for the 140 and 125kW for the 170. Also the engine code on the next line under the engine power on the sticker will be CBAB for a 103kW/140 and CBBB for a 125kW/170. The same Data Sticker should be inside the front cover of your Service Schedule book.

    And yes, all pre-facelift cars were PD Diesels and all facelift cars will be Common-rail Diesels.

    I had a courtesy car the other week 08 plate 140 TDI, it was a pre-facelift but had straight stainless tail pipes - so wondered if this was a facelift, however im not sure because the engine in it was absolutely awful!! Couldn't wait to get my PD170 back. I don't even remember my 04 140 being this bad!
