    Newbie looking for an A4 TDi

    Currently looking for an A4 TDi, but don't know weather to go for the 140 or 170, like the idea of the 170 but heard they can be a bit thirsty in comparision. Would a 140 be better and get it re-mapped? Any comments or guidance would be appreicated.

    Go for 170, smoother motor, twin exhausts and worth every penny! Re maps can invalidate warranty and cause resale problems. I would steer clear

    You really need to drive them both and make your own decision. I picked up my A4 140 S-line 3 hours ago and love it. Responsive on pulling away from standstill and pulls well between 50 to 70. I have test driven the 170 as well and although it's a very quick car when it came down to availability of an S-line etc etc I was more than happy to go for the 140.

    Thanks guys, I've tried the 140 which was better than expected but I still felt I wanted just a bit more from it. I'll give the 170 a try next and see how that goes.
