    100ps is roughly 98.6bhp, it is the European way of measuring power where as we use BHP.

    And on an A4 it isn't really enough to be honest.

    I think that's the output of the entry-level 1.6 litre petrol engine.

    I think its only with the new 2.0tdi that it became euro 4 compliant.. my tdi 130 isnt.. or i'm paying WAY too much company car tax!!

    There's also a 1.9 PD 115 in the new A4 that's Euro 4 compliant. It's the entry level diesel engine.

    I think the 1.9TDi were either 90 or 110, but not 100.

    Those were the pre-PD 1.9TDIs. The PD 1.9s come in 100, 115, 130, 150 & 160 ps outputs. Only some of these were available in Audis

    Look in the spare wheel well. There should be a sticker in German that details the exact build of the car, should be 96kW which is 130bhp.

    I've got a 2002 100BHP A4 which is on a 1.9 TDi engine. Can confirm that it is way under powered.

    Looking to upgrade in next few months
