2.0T not driving as expected
I recently changed (forced due to someone driving into it) my car from a 2001 A3 1.8T Quattro to a 2006 A3 2.0T and have my doubts as to whether the new car is driving as it should. In the 1.8T booting it in 2nd would result in being pleasantly pressed back in my seat and very rapid accelleration, however doing the same in the new A3 is not like this at all, which I am very surprised at given that the 2.0T has more power than the other. It doesnt really feel like a turbo car at all. I have had it checked over by my usual Audi specialist and the only issue found was a faulty coil pack that was on its way out. Since the fix there has been no change in driving characteristics.
So my question is: does this sound normal (just different driving characteristics to the nature of the engine) or could it have some underlying issues that are not immediately obvious?
Thanks in advance.
