    i have a 05 plate s line tdi 2.0ltr 140bhp. First thing i ve put 2 ltrs of oil in and only down 3-4k. My brother in law was following me and he said it was smoking blue when i booted it. Hence me thinking turbo seals. Is there a problem with these cars.

    next problem when i put the car in to nutrual or foot on clutch when braking and the is about to stop the revs drop and its feels like its about to stall, but then as u stop it goes back to normal

    last prob the car seems to juder a lot when pulling away around 2k.:faint:

    i am going to book it in the local audi garage today, we got a warranty for 12mths when we bought it off them last june so, its back to them.

    Last car i had loads of problems with it, bloody zafira gsi. I had 3 turbos in 4mths and it still kept going wrong in the end the local vauxhall garage said just get rid of it:ohmy:

    The judder thing; I have this also - Apparently this is normally caused by a dual-mass flywheel problem!

    Not sure why or how - i know someone who works for Audi, and he said they (2005 dual mass fly wheel) have a history of doing this judder thing! Not sure if it's something that can be left or if it's a sign of a problem that needs fixing...?!

    +1 for the dual mass flywheel

    as for the smoke it could well be the turbo. does the car feel down on power at all?
