    Hi Guys!! Newbie!!

    Hi Guys, thought I'd join up as I am currently in the market for a Audi A3 1.9L / 2.0L TDI Sportback. I currently have a 1.4L MG ZR which has suffered HGF will miss it so much but I know i will love my Audi much more. Any advice as to which one to get?? Is the 1.9L better fuel economy even tho it has 1 less gear??

    Welcome, personally the 2.0 tdi is much better. It offers a lot more gains for less downfalls.

    Thanks mate, I test drove a 1.9 TDI on wednesday, is the 2.0 TDI noticably quicker? I just want something that the chavs will pull along side in their corsa's and saxo's thinking "grandad car" (thats why i want a sportback (no offence sportback drivers)) then to just show them up at the lights.

    The 2.0 PD engine is better then the 1.9 PD. Best engine to get if you want no problems really is the PD140 as it doesn`t have a DPF to screw up on you.
    06 Audi 2.0 PD140 Sport TDI Quattro S-LINE.
    Old engine 330 bhp @ flywheel 263 bhp @ wheel 490 lb torque. Audidriver write up HERE
    Now stripped and playing with an uprated Cryo treated engine fitted with bigger turbo,water/methanol,uprated injectors etc etc.Wanting 400 bhp and 500 lb torque.

    Other car 500+ bhp MK4 Golf R32 turbo.
