    Gents - Should the 20 FSi have a full engine cover?

    mate of mine picks one up at the weekend but when we viewed it it looked like this:

    is there a bit missing?

    Car is a 53 Plate

    Cheers
    Paul

    PS - I drove it and thought the 2.0 FSI it was very good.

    Nope.

    Looks exactly like mine does, and every other 2.0 fsi I viewed before buying mine. All were 53 and 04 plates.

    I think mines got an extra bit of plastic covering the spark plugs. I could be wrong (usually am).

    haha good one ...i think all audi engines are good petrol and diesel the only one that is truly and i mean truly terrible was the 5 speed 1.6 i had one for about 8 month the speed was terrible truly awefull if audi put 6 speed in and shortened the gear ratio slightly it might of worked ....might ..lol and ive heard the old 1.9 diesel is bad aswell and as loud as the QE2's engine room not sure how true that is though

    I think I know the answer to why these diesel guys slag off petrol.....

    It's similar to when a woman sees another woman who is better looking than her.... and then starts to b*tch about her.....
    "yeah but she's got fake boobs/hair/eyelashes/etc".

    Finally a thread involving the 2.0Fsi where it isnt slagged off!

    Must admit I was a bit sceptical of the FSI minus the `T` but FWIW I thought it was very good!

    cheers

    The good thing is... when they do come to ruin the fun we'll be able to prepare some comebacks in advance.... as we'll hear them coming from miles away!!

    If there wasn't a 2.0 tfsi, then I imagine the fsi wouldnt get slated half as much as it does...
    It is a lovely engine, Quick, economical (for a petrol) and a smooth power delivery.
    Having said that a tfsi is definitely on the cards for my next motor :)
