    1.8 TFSI (160) belt or chain?

    Hi I've not been on here in a while, I used to lurk about in the 8p section but today I'm glad to say I picked up a 58 plate A4 1.8 TFSI (160) S-LINE with only 25k on the clock:-). My question is whether this engine is belt or chain driven. I've googled it and found some people saying it's chain driven & some people saying it's belt driven. Car is great just need to know if it's chain or belt driven because if it's belt driven it will be needing changed as the car has no long turned 5 years old. Cheers

    As this is the 1.8 Petrol I would have thought that is a belt like my 54 plate 1.8T ?

    And I am wrong lol its a chain :-)

    Nice one. That is the 170bhp version though but I have found a few reviews on the 160bhp version that also say it is chain driven. Cheers
