    Hi all
    Had a full scale argument with a vw mechanic tonite. He is adiment that audi never made a 170 bhp engine so wtf. He said the b7 never came with that engine. So what the hell is in my drive. I assumed i had a 170 special edition. Lol

    If the mechanic was being pedantic, then he's correct, there is no 170bhp engine, they are always called TDI 170's, but nowhere does it say 170bhp! It's because the 170 is in PS, which equates to 168bhp!

    I'll get my coat now.

    you want to be pedantic, ok, what does PS stand for?... horse power. so technically 170PS is still 170hp

    PS stands for Pferdestärke, which is German for Horsepower.

    1 pferdestarke = 0.9863201 horsepower [international]

    There's a similar case with Mercedes C63 Amg it's actually a 6.2 litre but with 6.3 badges on lol so a tdi 168 sounds sh**e so they call it a 170 sounds better
