    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.

    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!
