    Hello - newbie here!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I've a couple of questions that that I'd appreciate some help with:

    1. Does anyone have an idea of when the 5dr A3 will be available in the UK? So far, the dates I've seen are Oct/Nov 2004.

    2. I've heard rumours of a bhp increase in the 2.0 TDi for the 5dr - maybe to 160 or 175 bhp. Anyone got any further details on this.

    Cheers

    Superchips have taken a standard A3 2.0 TDI that was already producing 345 Nm of torque on their rolling road and chipped it up to 397 Nm @ 2185 rpm. The power figures for this car were 156 bhp @ 4105 before chipping and 185 bhp @ 3896 after.

    I assume if the factory do produce a 160 bhp version in may well be in the same sort of range.

    Regards

    Most of the top tuners for VAg will or already do offer tuning options for the 2.0 TDI.

    Check Oettinger who were the first as far as I know to offer something.
