    been on here for a while now, don't seem to see too many people posting with an A4 cab 3.0? am I one of the few who was daft enough to buy one of these?
    seems to be fairly slow for a 3 litre too, anyone got any tips/tricks to speed up without hammering the mpg? anyone with any comments or opinions about the car?

    When I was looking for mine, I couldn't see much available for the 3 litre model. So I just got the more tuneable 1.8t sport instead.

    I also have a cab 3.0 but also own an A4 1.8 turbo, I agree they are 2 different cars in performance, the 1.8 is very much tuneable because of it's turbo but that's the major downfall of the 3.0 ....there is no turbo If there was a turbo available for the 3.0 that would be one wild car I believe there is no turbo upgrade but if there was I would def have one

    And by the way the cab 3.0 is the best bullet proof engine for the cabs 1.8 is tuneable but not bullet proof

    I love my 3.0 TDi TDV, out performs most petrol cars by a mile.

    Although this is obviously a TDi
