    Correct, that is wrong.

    ok, just seems odd that the 140 i test drove had 1 exhaust pipe and the 170 i bought had 2? ( hence why i believed him? )

    Ah I think you're talking about a MY11 TDI 140. They do come with a single exhaust.
    Earlier models (2004-2009/2010) all came with twin exhausts though, apart from the 1.6.

    Here's a photo of an older 140 with twin exhausts:

    Ah makes sense now, I didn't consider the reg lol

    Should know better than to trust a salesman

    Makes me wonder now if my S3 quattro really does have 2 engines , one for the front and one for the back?

    But certainly the sticker in boot or the inside front cover of the service book should say, at the beginning of the fourth line from the top, 103kw for a 140 and 125kw for a 170 following by the gearbox type and month/year the car was built.

    For the last 6 years, I was under the impression that i had a 170 and to my surprise went to have a look in the boot for that sticker and did not like what I have found. It says 103Kw, on the registration paper it says 103Kw. But was told by the dealer when i bought it that it was 170.
    I bloody insured it as such not knowing that it was a 140.

    Is there any kind of way that i might prove the dealer sold it to me under false pretence?
    Why doesn't the registration paper say 140 or 170 instead of a stupid code?

    That explain the crappy looking exhaust.

    6 years ago!?
    When did the 170 come out? After 2005, I think.

    Anyway, I reckon you'd have a hard time proving you were sold the wrong thing all that time ago, unless you have paperwork from the dealer stating your car is a 170.

    Mine is a 54 reg but was registered in January 2005.
    I doubt it will have 170 written anywhere, unless you when you buy it, you know to look for that sticker.
    Which I didn't at the time.

    I am convinced the saleman sold it to me as such.
    The only joy might be that my insurance next year will be cheaper.

    2010/2011 A3's that are 140BHP only have one chrome tip exhaust and 170BHP still have the twin tip.I am going to convert my body to an S3 in the next couple of months and want to get a twin tip,not sure what the easiest and warranty happy way is.

    I would try a custom exhaust company to cut the single off & weld on a stainless steel twin pipe exit, shouldn't cost too much

    if you have a smart phone (android/iPhone) just download the My Car Check app, the free bit gives you the info you require by just typing the reg number in.
    Thats what i used when looking for a 170 Quattro to make sure i wasn't wasting my time traveling to view them.
