    TDI Opinions: 140 vs 170

    Well.... seems I havent posted in here for quite some time tut tut :P

    As per title, Im thinking of returning to the 4 Rings after a 6 year hiatus.... thinking decent low mileage secondhand A3 Sportback but not sure whether to opt for 140 or 170bhp TDI engine. I like to drive something with a bit of poke so is the 170 worth the extra?

    Thanks in advance for any info

    Haha! jojo 21984 posts and counting I recall when it was a mere 5k or so, thanks for the info the last A3 I owned had the 140 TDI engine in it and I was happy with it albeit coulda done with a bit more poke (hence the remap I guess) cheers fella
