    confused on Audi A4\'s

    Possibly looking to buy a 2000 facelift A4 2.4 V6 5 speed



    As you can see it is a facelift version, my confusion lies in that all sites I goto they list the 2000 A4 as either a 1.8T 20V or a 2.8L V6... is this correct???

    All I want to do is find out some basic performance/specifications on this model and it seems all misleading.

    Please help...

    Kind Regards

    PS is the 1.8T a better engine?

    Yep, the 2.4 is only available in the B6 chassis. I'd go for the 1.8T and drop a chip on it !!!

    lol!!
    The car above is a B5. It is a facelift one (clear 1 piece headlights, curvy handles, different dash with illuminated vent dials, different boot creases etc)
    The 2.4 V6 is defo avail in the B5.
    www.parkers.co.uk seem very good for reviews on the cars as they now give a lot more detail and list every car model to get accurate spec.

    From what I've read / interpeted the 2.4V6 is the best v6 for economy and power. but the 1.8T is obviously going to be more economical. but the v6 should last longer. but the 1.8T will be cheaper to service. Get the idea, both pros and cons!

    I want a V6 but after I'd got used to the noise, I'd then start to moan when I have to fill it up!!

    just pointing out that this is what has been happening quite a lot recently and to me at least 3 times - i.e the linking to animated gifs and subsequent hijacking threads. funny how its different when it happens in a thread that YOU are actually interested in. just thought you should spare a thought next time - not matter what forum. general chat isnt any different to any other forum - pointless posting in any forum is exactly that!

    anyway best of luck with the a4. i'd go with the 1.8T - my mate has one, lowered, chipped and alloyed. and even at the age his is 97, it still looks quite a fresh car and looks good for its age. he offered me his minted low mileage 48k for 5k last year, but i wanted something smaller and faster and quatto [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] if you want 6 cyls i'd have to say - go to the dark side. BM's 325 is far nicer engine.

    cheers

    Re: confused on Audi A4\'s

    NSD, I drive an A4 2.4 2000 (b5), facelifted just like the one in your photo (except with exterior mods). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Here's the specs:
    165bhp/230NM@3200rpm
    0-60 in 8.4s
    Top speed: 140mph

    On average I manage 26mpg in town (320-340 miles per tank) and 33-34mpg for long journeys. Reasonable I think.

    The 2.4 is very quiet, smooth and great for long journeys. It's a comfortable cruiser which I'm happy with it. Performance is not bad.

    But if you're after performance, I recommend the 1.8T because you will gain far more power by modding the engine. Even unmodded a 1.8T provides more torque at lower revs than a 2.4.

    Crash -

    Got any images of your car, you see I still love the A3 style, but I want to move on. If I can see the potential in the A4 then I may sway!

    Re: confused on Audi A4\'s

    I reckon the 1.8T has got one hell of a turbo lag. I havnt driven the larger engine A4s other than the S4 and that is superb.

    What is the 1.8T like with chip? Im not taking about 0-60, im talkin about 0-100.

    Re: confused on Audi A4\'s

    I know mine has a K04 and Remap and it is very fast there was next to no lag at all.
    The only reason i have lag now it because of the FMIC.

    Re: confused on Audi A4\'s

    so pics of A4's B5's done up please. by done up I mean nice set of rims and zaust.

    I spoilt my A3 by putting massive rims on it and by lowering it, the ride conformt went and after a while anoyed the hell outta me. I wont do that again, So I reckon nice 18 rims and a miltek - mods over. I want a V6 now as im over 25 now so insurance is more beneficial that a turbo with mods.

    Don`t be so lazy [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img] and search yourself as lots of pictures all over the various audi forums. Above is the s4 look, the other major ones are the Rieger v1 (see my old pics or countless others on audizine and audiworld) and the rieger v2. For the oem rs4 look- see NMB`s pics on audizine as are stunning or excursions- www.mwstewart.co.uk for his old car or if your adventorus read Docurley`s thread about rs4 conversion and see the pic on the 3rd or 4th page.

    Even as standard the a4 as it is is undoubtedly a classic design which will look good 20 years from now.

    in that case i recommed the 2.5 v6 tdi, it sounds like a v6 petrol on full whack and they do 35-50 mpg depends on driving conditions.
    plus you can chip them up too.

    i do keep thinking about getting a tdi what with petrol prices and them not being slow when chipped or v6. only thing is the hassle of changing car!
    won't be using mine much after summer as living in at uni so might leave car at home.

    Re: confused on Audi A4\'s

    If a V6 is what you want then go for the 2.8 30V motor, i bought a 12v 2.6 which at the time seemed fast, but now i wish i'd bought a 18.T so I'd have the chance of tuning.

    2.6V6 12v = 150bhp with no mods available
    2.8V6 12v = 174bhp again no mods available,

    2.8V6 30v = 193-197bhp standard with the potential of supercharging to around 300bhp, i'm of the opinion the 2.4V6 is the same externals as the 2.8 30v so too could be supercharged?

    the 18T is a different beast though with many upgrades and plenty scope of tuning in excess of 250 bhp with an exhaust and chip?

    next time i buy it'll be an 18T or 2.7V6 Bi turbo if i can afford one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    you can now reasonably expect to get 400bhp from a 1.8 turbo motor!!!

    F*** me, thats gotta be better than a V6!

    You would have to do a lot of the internals to get the magic 400bhp though.
