    That is the standard HP on the those engines. So no it has not been mapped.

    Only the special editions and DTM versions had the 220hp motor.

    They have a few issues to look out for but otherwise generally reliable.

    Full service history is a good start. And I dont believe the Gti and Audi motor is the same could be mistaking.

    The quattros are also more expensive on car tax. They have a smaller fuel tank than the front wheel drive so 63 litre as to 70litre.

    The quattro also tend to eat tyres more as well as are heavier on fuel.

    look out for the cambelt
    think it needs to be changed after 5 years or 60k depends what comes first - that's the first thing I had to change on my car.

    I've had my 2.0T Quattro FSI special edition for 6-7 months now 162kw engine approx 220 BHP - got some decent power but still a decent family car and experience so far.

    Yep changed the cam belt on mine at bang on 50k at it was already six years old.get the reg and ask at a audi dealer to check if the car has been in for the coil pack recall , found out that mine had not been changed when asking about recoding the spare key.we tyres do wear but it is a big powerful car.
    the main thing is to go for the higher spec car you can find and the more history the better.

    if you do finally go for one then if some does ask " what are you driving these days" mainly BMW drivers just reply ..." a quattro " then the conversation will move on ..... Lol.

    one more thing ...... It is a powerful car in all weather conditions and really enjoyable on the twisty back roads....
    you are only aloud to use the phrase " lets fire up the quattro " - once , use it wisely......

    hope this is a help.
