Just picked up our new purchase, a 2003 1.9tdi Avant and immediately took it away on a long weekend break where it performed brilliantly!
We did look at Touran’s first, but decided after driving our Golf 115bhp with a tuning box that the 105bhp engine just wouldn’t cut it, so needing the space the Avant looked the part.
I have a few questions though, but first a bit of spec:
5 speed (wanted 6 but never mind)
Single Cd radio with 6 disc in the glove box
First off the SATNAV is new to me, it consists of a set of controls on the centre console and the screen is the info screen in between the dials. All works fine (why VAG did you not have postcode inputs on your early SATNAVS!) but the disc is the original one, so could someone advise the model of this and if there’s an updated disc available?
Second although it goes well, its just lacking a bit, and wondered about either a map or another tuning box. I don’t need huge power and certainly don’t want to break the gearbox or stress the turbo, so any recommendations for a suitable map or box please.
Thirdly, I miss the Golf’s armrest and have read its not too hard to retro fit one. Does it have to be a Audi A4 specific one? Or could one from another VAG cousin fit? As we have leather I would love to fit a leather arm rest but A4 ones seem rare and carry a premium too.
Hoping it will be as good to us as our older and battered Golf! Although if it can avoid all the “negative boost” fault codes that would be nice.
I’ll get some pictures up if theres any interest,
