In my quest to research the range of diesels I am now considering the 3.0 tdi after much deliberation. I've ascertained there are two versions, the 203 and 230bhp models, ideally i think I need to look at a pre march 2006 for the tax and is it the DLV model which is the later engine? Having spoken to my local dealer warranty chap.... it seems the 2.7's and the 3.0 are the best engines in his expereince, the latter being better than the 2.7 he says, so the 3.0 diesel I am now considering too.
Currently my S3 gets roughly 150 miles to £40 of fuel urban driving, mixed pace.....
What I would like to know is roughly what a 3.0 diesel would return in the real world
