Hi there. As some of you have maybe noticed, I have recently purchased a A3 2.0TDI. Now this is my first TDI car and i'm not too sure how to drive so do please bare with me . I'll put the questions as points to make it easier: Btw, it's got 48k > 49k on the clock 1) On a cold morning, what kind of RPM should I keep it at/above/between? 2) I know I shouldn't heavy foot it while it's cold and wait for the temp gauge to come to the middle. Once it's reached the middle, can I then stretch its legs abit or should I wait for around 10mins while its on the middle to push it. 3) What RPM should I generally change the gears at. 2k? 2.5k? 3k? 4) What would I have to check for the most e.g. will I have to keep on topping the water pump? etc etc 5) When topping the water pump, will ordinary water do or do I need some kind of special liquid? 6) When I push the ESP Off button, a yellow icon appears with an arrow going around it, does it mean its On or Off? 7) Anything else I should watch out for or do in general? 8) Is there particular diesel I should go for when filling up e.g. Shell, BP? Sorry for all the questions, it's just so I don't screw it up heh. Many thanks in advance.
