Engine movement under acceleration

    Hi guys,

    I know that I haven't technically got a B8 A4, BUT I've got the same 2.0 TDi (143) engine in my Exeo that's in the B8 ;)

    I've noticed that when I'm sat stationary, and I blip the throttle, there is quite a significant movement from the engine, which consequently causes the entire car to 'rock' side-to-side.

    Is this a trait that's also prevelant in the A4?

    I noticed it when I test drove the 170 as well, so it's not just my car. The sales guy noted that it is a 'trait' of the engine being longitudinal rather than transverse.

    Neuspeed do a 'torque damper bushing' for the 1.8T and 2.0T engines, which apparently helps with this, but I can't seem to find an equivalent for the 2.0 TDi.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Cheers,
    Andy
