    As a Newbie to the forum I'm looking for some info. I've bought a 2006 A4 Avant S-Line Special Edition 2.0T FSI.

    The spec says it has 220bhp compared with the standard 200bhp. Reviews say that the engine as been "tweaked" to give the extra power. Does anyone know how it differs from the standard spec? Has it been changed mechanically (eg different turbo) or are we talking an ECU tweak here?

    Any things I should know or look out for with this model?

    Any links to useful sites, articles or reviews would be great. :readit:

    Just a slight audi remap other than that std.
    What you want to do is get an aftermarket remap which will give you 240 - 250 bhp and transforms the car best 200 quid I ever spent !

    Audi A4 2.0 TFSI now also with 220 bhp

    [​IMG] The Audi A4 stands out for its driving pleasure and superior technology, exciting styling and a level of luxury that even satisfies the demands made in the top car class. The 220 bhp (162 kW) 2.0 TFSI engine already used successfully in the special Audi A4 DTM Edition model is now also being offered for the production version of the Audi A4.

    Developed by quattro GmbH, this petrol direct injection engine with turbocharger delivers 20 bhp more than the 2.0 TFSI unit already available, and its torque has increased from 280 to 300 Nm. This power unit sees quattro GmbH continuing the tradition of power-enhanced 4-cylinder turbo engines. This increase in horsepower has been achieved by selective modifications such as new pistons, a modified turbocharger and a suitably adapted engine management system.

    The Audi A4 2.0 TFSI with 220 bhp engine is distinguished visually from other A4 models by perforated brake discs at the front wheels and black anodised exhaust tailpipes. It can be ordered from early February 2006. The saloon is available starting at €32,000, the Avant at €33,600.

    Audi is the first manufacturer in the world to combine petrol direct injection with turbocharging in the spheres of both motor racing and volume production. The 2.0 TFSI's exceptionally broad torque plateau permits a fuel-efficient driving style on the one hand, and also means that a light press of the accelerator pedal is all that is needed to produce considerable thrust and a spontaneous unleashing of power.
