Have been reading forum for a long time now, but only just joined amd must say how interesting it is.
Now my 2.0 Tdi S-line is what we might call hopeless in the wet and snow, had it into the dealers over this and they gave me a A5 courtesy car, took this out in the snow and the traction control seemed to slow the revs down and the wheels kept bitting well.
Audi tell me they tested mine and found no fault, so took tech out for a little ride in mine, wheels spinning, light flashing but going no where very fast, he tells me this is normal for this weather, tell him A5 was no problem and he tells me the TC on the A5 is a far superior TC and thats why it is better.
Still not happy I insist it isnt right, and cant believe A3's are like this, they then agree to let me try another 2.0Tdi they have for sale, take this out and it behaves itself great, bitting great, tried a little hill, great. So of we go back to the dealers and take mine out again, took the same route and spinning wheeels everywhere, get to little hill and we sat there spinning like a lemon, he then tells me that the other A3 was a PD engine so have different systems, being fobbed off here I think.
Anyway they tell me that I will have to wait till another new 2.0tdi s-line comes in to try as they have none on demo, strange that as had one 2 weeks ago when it went in for other problems.
Have read other threads and it seems like when TC is working you get a knocking noise which I dont get, am I being fobbed off here or not?
