Hi there, New member to the forum so please be gentle.
To cut a long story short im a 28 yr old HGV driver. I have had a love of Audi's for some time but its unlikely I'd ever have the money to buy a good one one outright. Dad has said when he retires at the end of the year he wants to buy me the Audi I'm wanting and so far I'm set on the A4 Avant 3.0 TDI Quattro. Mainly specifically the 3.0 TDI because I want the sound of a V6 but the MPG is a bit low on the petrol V6 engines.
Im generally after any information common faults/problems/mpg's if possible
I have done some reading regarding failure of the swirl flaps on the inlet manifolds and that a proper replacement is rather pricey?
Although there was also mention of mapping out the swirl flaps and EGR valve.
Just wanting to know about the alternatives for repairing the potentially costly issue.
All information/insight would be fantastic.
PS I know you cant really run one of these on a tight budget but thats why I'm wanting to get as much information together as i can just now
