Been looking for a 1.9TDi A3 for my first car, but ALWAYS preferred an Avant. Fallen in love with a B6 100 Sport today
Today I found that the 100BHP A4 Avant can be insured for only £300 more than the A3 1.9TDi 105. Well, when I say only; that equates to a total cost of £4600 premium, car is only worth £3300. But needs must, besides I am too stubborn to start off anywhere else than my dream.. an Audi!!
But what occurred to me immediately was, isn't it a bit sluggish? It is a fairly big car to be only putting out 100BHP. My Mum has a B7 1.9 115, not the quickest of cars but far from the worst.
So I immediately read up on remaps for the 100, it says that you have to be very careful due to the clutches fitted and too much power causing slippage? Anyone had any bad experience of remapping these, or what is yours remapped to?
Also what can I expect MPG wise out of this? Being on an apprentice budget, the £400 a month insurance is taking a big chunk out of my monthly wage, so running costs matter.
Just looking for some feedback on this engine really. Any help will be massively appreciated, thanks in advance.
