    KO3S (Y-plate is 2000/2001?) although a definitive way to check is to read the part number off the turbo and cross check it to see exactly which one is fitted. The local stealership can also assist, if you ask nicely for the part number based on your registration number.

    Facelift were around late 2000. If you have a facelift model I thought it would be a K03S.

    150 bhp FWD cars were K03 turbo'd. It was only the TQS and Golf anniversery that got the K03S to give 180 bhp

    I've just called my local TPS and asked them the part number for my turbo based on my registration number (Y plate A3 1.8t FWD, DBW, engine code AUM), the part number they gave was: 06A 145 713F, they said that the same part number is listed for the AUQ engine (A3 TQS).

    VAG Cat came up with this though:

    http://www.vagcat.com/epc/cat/au/A3/2000/201/49/2397109/

    O6A 145 713D (not 'F'), still listed as KKK, AUM/AUQ.

    I would of guessed at K03s turbo, dbw was only on the face lifts I believe...hence being a K03s...

    I don't know how accurate the list is though.....

    There is a visual difference between the 2 turbo's, something about the number of blades on the impeller (8 blades on KO3S v's 12 blades on KO3). I'm sure someone will come along soon and clarify that.

    Just noticed your signature, you have a Custom Code map, do you know your bhp figure, if you broke the 200bhp mark then you most definately have a K03s turbo,

    I believe you have...

    There you go then, definately K03s...

    You'd be no where near those figures with a K03, some peeps have seen 230ish with the K03s...

    As somebody said above.. why not just read the tag on the turbo to get the code and then it's easily identified? Simple.

    It aint THAT simple on an A3. There is no room to get your head down to read it.

    However, the later 1.8T 150/180 both came with K03.053/053 i believe. the 'S' designation is made up and doesnt actually say that on the turbo. I believe the earlier K03 was a K03.011 or something.

    i know for a fact the AUM was a K03's'

    Yeah if you could visually check the plate on the turbo it wouldn't actually say K03S as stated above but you could cross reference your findings to see if it is what we term as a 'K03S'.

    No room to get a small mirror in there to get a glimpse at the plate either?

    Good info there! Cheers for posting it.
    But really, K04 should not produce more than 220hp?

    I think he means a K04.001 which is not much better than a K03
