    hi not long ago iv baught an 2006 a3 2.0 tdi quattro s line. I did want the 170 bhp model but it was hard to find one with the right milage an price so i got the 140. I love the car :yes: however its not the 170. So iv spoke to amd in essex about the stage 1 which would put it up to 185bhp. I have heard that they are the best people to go to. They say the clutch will be fine, others say it willl slip. i really want it done but dont want it to go! be grateful for any feedback thanks rich.:unsure:

    aslong as its not high milage and your clutch is already half dead. then it shouldnt slip at all. it will gradually wear faster but thats normal.

    Really depends on how you drive. It should be fine with ocasional hard driving but if your wanting to launch it at the lights everytime then best start saving for a clutch.
