    I'm away visiting the missus family for a few days and I noticed one the family members has a 2005 A3 sport sport back, i wanted to work out engine it had as it was debadged so I put the reg into the 'mycarcheck' app and it's telling my it's a 2.0TDI 187.7 bhp engine

    I've never seen these before are they particularly rare?

    A mate's got a BKD which is chip tuned to 187 bhp.

    Maybe he tuned it and "did the right thing" :p

    check the tail pipes, if they are facing out then its 170, if they aim down then 140.

    Must be an error with the my car check people maybe? either that or he has had it remapped and registered the quoted bhp output with the DVLAssholes

    you'd know if it was 190bhp, its either 140/170. they simply didnt do a 187.7!

    Mine came up wrong when I bought mine also. Database error, had it a few times on different cars and vans... It really doesn't work very well!
