    What juice? Dilemma !!

    Help ! Have now sold my superb 8L 1.8 T Sport and the question now is which 8P to go for ?
    2.0 TDI ot 2.0 FSI. The stats are about the same, obviously better MPG on the Deisel and I guess AMD can do more with a Turbo'd engine but am scared about moving to the Dark Side !! lol
    Some advice on the pro's and con's please......

    Yeah, has to be the 2.0 TDI - better economy, better options regarding tuning

    There is another thread probably just near bottom of page with a similar query. Some important points are mentioned there on the merits of both types.

    Thank you. I have a real passion for fast cars and racing. I'm on here to learn alot more. You guys on here know so much about moddin parts and it interests me. I've done bodywork, alloys etc and maps but not much on the internals! And I love a good looking car with a good sounding engine under the bonnet.

    That would explain the V6 then!

    Glad to hear you have a real interest, I don't think that's hugely common so ver refreshing. Hope you carry on asking questions!

    Thanks for all the advice guys (and gal). I think it's going to be a TDI for me.
    Not sure about the apple juice comment though !! There's always one !! Anyway, grape juice is best. lol
