    Just baught a a4 avant. Its a 2003 53 1.8T Quattro with twin exit exhaust. The seller said it was the 190bhp version, but now looking the papers, on an audi import paper its says power 125kW / 5700 1/min. So does that mean its the 169bhp version? but did they make this with twin exit exhaust (one each side of car) ?

    Its a 5 gear triptronic box. 40k on the clock.

    Im a bit confused.

    Yep, and also the '1.8 TURBO' on the engine cover is red.

    The engine code for a 190ps 1.8T is BEX (check the service book) and it will have twin intercoolers (one behind each fog lamp)

    All 1.8T's have twin exhausts :thumbsup:

    Check the sticker on the inside of the spare wheel well. It will have the engine power on it in Kilowatts.
    The 1.8's with the red T are the most powerful 140Kw, (190PS, 187 bhp).

    1.8T 20v 150 PS (110 kW; 148 bhp) or 163 PS (120 kW;161 bhp)
    1.8T 20v 180 PS (132 kW; 178 bhp) or 190 PS (140 kW; 187 bhp)
