    Hi I'm quite a newb on the forum and hope someone can help me out.

    I've got a 58 plate a3 1.9 tdi s line 105bhp, could someone tell me if I have a diesel particulate filter fitted as I want to do an intermediate oil change and I believe I would need a different grade of oil if one is fitted

    Thanks in advance chris

    I am pretty sure you won't on the 1.9 TDi as it was the old PD engine before Audi launched the 1.6 TDi CR engine.

    Thanks audicruiser I was thinking of giving my local Audi dealer a ring tomorrow and asking them, do you think they would tell me ? Or is there anything on the log book ie the chassis number which indicates it's fitted?

    They are right, it was the reason that the 1.6 TDi was launched to meet newer emission laws.

    ive not heard of many people having problems with the 2.0 tdi audis but the vw golfs seem to have problems with them blocking up and they aint cheap

    when i bought my A3 i made sure i went for a dpf free model for peace of mind
