    a friend has just brought a R-reg A3 1.9 tdi SE

    the i on the tdi badge on the boot door is red, he seems to be under the impression this is a 130spec tdi rather then the normal 110. can anyone confirm this?


    i must say im mighty impressed with his alcantara seats /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    i think it means it was the 110bhp rather than the 90bhp version.
    www.parkers.co.uk has a handy area for specs and years.

    If its an R reg its definitely 110 bhp (unless its been chipped /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif ) with a red 'i'.
    My A4 is a '99 red 'i' S reg with factory 110 bhp......

    Look at the sticker spare wheel well in the boot if it says 96KW then its a 130bhp. if it doesn't its a 110bhp

    It's a 110bhp, the 130bhp hadn't been launched then. I think it came out around the end of 2000 in the A4 and A3.
    It should still be good for around 140-145bhp with a good re-chip.
