    Hi peeps,

    what should my A5 idle at when warmed up, as the title says its a 3.0 tdi, its a manual not that it should matter?

    Currently it is running arond 900 revs which is seems higher than I remember? I thought it used to tick over around 650rpm once warmed up? surfed the net and can't get any info?

    Cheers

    About 650 here as well. It does occasionally start out at 900 now that it is getting cold, and drops down to 650 after a minute or so.

    Been watching mine a bit recently. Normal idle 600-650 BUT as you start to pull away it rises to circa 950-1000 , I am told this is software inspired and designed to avoid judder on pulling away. I think it is a 3.0Tdi Quattro feature only.
