    Hi All,

    If I was going to see an A3, How would I find out the engine code for a 2.0 TDI 140Bhp DSG? i.e. if it was BKD

    And also what is the engine that came after BKD..on here I read that it came out in the 55 plates and younger cars.

    Thanks

    Its in the audi logbook mate. If not theres a sticker in the boot of the car which has got all the vehicle codes on it.

    Also are all 2.0 TDI 140 BKD engines? I read on a post on here that said that it changed due to the cracked cylinder head problems in 2005..but the engine code doesn't seem to have changed :think:
