    Folks,

    As most of us with the 1.4 already know, the rattling actuator rod was fixed by the installation of a simple clip.

    Would it be safe to assume that there will now be a "fix" for all new 1.4's in production, rather than retrofitting the clip? Interested to hear comments from those who've received 1.4's recently?

    Thanks

    You would assume that if it's a wider problem and effects all 1.4 Cod and non cod engines they would have this solved. Is every 1.4 owner having this problem? I got the non cod and I had to get it fixed.

    i got mine in July last year and had to be fixed also.......i'm swapping over this August, with a build week in June so i would hope that it's had a factory fix applied?

    I thought this turbo wastegate actuator rattle was 1.4 122PS only - and the 1.4 140PS COD did not have this issue?

    I had mine fixed a few months after delivery (May '13). You would think they would have it sussed by now. That said, the bigger engines seem to be suffering from this now.

    What you trading in for First Ever Audi ?.

    I've sacked the cabby idea for now. Might buy another A3 with a pano roof ?.

    You do right. Great spec, look and value. What colour have you gone for ?

    Gone for Glacier White....wanted Daytona but i've always had bad luck with Grey cars. Currently have Glacier and although a nightmare to keep clean it does look great as and when(if) the sun comes out :)

    A work colleague of mine has a Glacier Sportback S-Line. It does look good. I'm still happy with Daytona like. It's been the most commented on aspect of the car for me !. Suits the lines of the car massively.

    Agree, there's something about Daytona that seems to make the lines of the car look nicer...
