    Hi
    as title are they really bad engines
    ive been looking for a nice petrol B6 for a while now and im either missing them or there rubbish and not as described when i get there which is really annoying after a 500mile round trip
    so ive been offered a nice looking 2005 s-line B7 with a 54,000 mile 2.0 litre TFSI engine
    me being me thou have read so many bad things on these lumps its really put the skids under my purchase as i dont want to be lumbered with a money pit
    whats peoples thoughts
    thanks
    Paul

    the engine is a good engine
    if looked after
    if the belt aint been done get it sorted its ready on years
    and just make sure you change the oil offen i always change every 5/6k
    pcv can fail cheap fix may need a new DV they can split CTS go offen again cheap and easy fix
    useing **** oil and not changeing it offen can and will block the pick up pipe and ****ing the engine
    so its worth haveing the sump off new pick up to be safe tho.

    Plus 1 with Bez....It's the luck of the draw with the 2.0T FSI engine...there seems to be no logic in the engine codes mentioned in threads and in the general feedback from owners. Some engines ( same codes ) are bullet proof and others drink oil like two strokes! Check out the Honest John website for general feedback on the engines however, FSH, belts being done, recall work done if applicable....and general good nick will be the things to check. Oh and look out for rust at rear quarter panels, back hatch ( avant ) and doors.

    Ours is on 65k and good as gold, regular changes on a performance motor is a must plus only buy with a good handful of receipts. We love ours
