2.0 TDI 177ps Engine Question
I was all set to order another BMW, this time a 320dM Sport touring, one of last of the current models as they are due for replacement in Sept. BMW were offering massive discount, but sadly it looks like I've just missed the cut off to order one to the spec I'm looking for.
I stopped past the Audi garage on the way home. Spotted a rather tasty A4 S-Line Black Edition Avant in the showroom. Looks really nice both in and out, decent size boot too. I've always been put of Audi's for a number of reasons, but this one tempting, except for the price, but hoping I can work them down.
Is the 177ps engine a brand new design? Two salesmen have told me different things, one said it's brand new and the other says it just has a more agressive map than the 170ps engine. I find it hard to believe that old engine would achieve the stated 58mpg (FWD), something fundemental must have changed???
Does anyone have one yet? I know it's early days, so unlikely anyone will have properly run in the diesel engine yet. But what sort of mpg are you getting from the 177ps front wheel drive engine? The Audi sales guy even suggested I won't get anywhere near the 58mpg in the book, more like 40-44mpg, which is very disappointing given I got 52mpg on average in the 320d I test drove (not hanging about) yesterday, it is also more powerful.
Thanks in advance.
