    Just sorted insurance on the A4 I am picking up next week.

    It's a facelift automatic (i know!) 1.8t Sport - insurance class it as 163bhp..

    I thought they were all 150bhp?

    Any ideas? cheers team.

    it will either be a 150 or 180.... they dont make em at 163. i would go with ian tho faclifts are 180bhp as they have a ko3s turbo not the ko3 as the pre face lifts have got.

    thats prob all wrong but thats what i always thought.

    i can garentee it aint 163 from the factory tho!

    Just seems weird that's what insurance states.

    Not arsed really, just as it's torquey(ish) and comfy.

    Fiesta is for speed!

    you will prob find it slow on acceleration compaired to the fezzy.. my mk2 golf gti would piss over my audi off the line. Audi would be flying past it as soon as i hit second gear tho! lol

    163ps is the B6 version, which equates to 160bhp, think they upped it from 150 on the facelift though could be wrong. 180bhp is only on the quattro.

    Mate you need to sort the insurance because they may void it if you have a crash because of the wrong details.

    Yeah will ring up tomorrow - should make it come in a bit cheaper.

    Surely if I've given the reg it should bring it up.

    Could of had my manual quattro 180 with 59K on it for less than what that is advertised for. I guess you specifically wanted an auto though

    It is true some Face Lift B5 1.8Ts were 163bhp

    My old (W) reg was 163 as it stated on the details and when i had it mapped it was 163 as well i seem to remember as i was astonished that it was still bang on the nose of what it left the factory as...

    marky, my "x" reg,s details state 150, could yours be a special, as i read somewhere that 163s arrived on B6s !

    B5s were 150 fwd and 180 Q?

    wonder why audi would vary the power?

    perhaps supplier issues were the reason, seems unusual to up the power without offering the variant as a special!

    anyone know of any component changes?

    or is it just a remap?:blackrs4:
