    A3 2.0 TDI info/advice wanted

    Hi,

    Just bought my 1st Audi, My previous cars have all been Renault Clio's. I just want to learn a bit more about the car, and any advice etc.

    My A3 is a 53 reg 2.0 TDI 140, FSH on 63K miles. Is it worth me getting it remapped? Can you get HID's for them? Is there anything I should look out for i.e common problems etc?

    Thanks in advance

    ~One of the main things you should look out for is the search button

    Everything you have asked has been asked many times before.

    Remaps will give you a big bang for buck ratio

    Hid's will blow your wiper motors after a while.

    cylinder head cracking and turbo's dying are apparently a problem on some cars but I haven't has neither on mine (05 80k)
