    Will do mate, yes will be nice to get it back, and have some power at my feet again!

    Had:
    A4 3.0 TDI
    A3 2.0 tdi black edition
    A4 2.7 TDI with DSG, still got that one on the drive.

    Loving your car mate, looks very Stealth like, quite scary if that came up beside you! lol

    Why have they had it for 5 weeks?

    Mine is in Dealers atm, I got an A4 Advant 2.0L TDI on loan, got to say not impressed with the power at all or the fuel consumption, but the DSG on it is actually seamless, 7 speed, it just holds like one rev range you accelerate revs not change and you would never know it was changing gear, Loads of gadgets I don't have clue what they do

    that's because the 2.0 TDI you drove didn't have DSG - it had a CVT "multitronic" gearbox.

    no spec of 2.0 TDI comes with DSG in the A4 at the moment.

    Well it feels like a DSG, it has paddles, and same options my S3 has, but anyhow I have no idea, One thing I do hate on it, is the Steering, it is light and woolly, quite horrible in fact.
