    If it's a Quattro, it is not Multitronic. That's all you need to know.

    I had 1.9tdi on a 52 plate, manual, really enjoyed it and never let me down, just fancied one in v6 quattro form, i will put up with mpg for the performance gain, nice to hear good reviews.

    3.0tdi Quattro with tiptronic is immense :)

    You got the flappy paddles on the s-line with the MFSW, possibly as an option, not as standard on all models I think. Most of the time you don't need them, the box is good enough on its own. Fun on occassion though...

    With the Diesel prices increase these days you will notice also

    Good choice of TDI though.
