    searched thru 100 pages now and I cant seem to find a spec list for the cars e.g what mpgs they both get total power and torque and what they can have after a remap [HR][/HR] I know the 2.0t has the oil pick up pipe problem does the 3.0tdi have any problems like this ?? [HR][/HR] insurance is cheaper on the tdi so might end up with one of them but never had an auto so what is triptronic ? does it have flappy paddles on the steering wheel ?[HR][/HR] thanks tom

    There are quite a lot of threads on this (I've even contributed a couple myself) which a search should throw up for you. Essentially; the inlet manifolds on 3.0TDi models have swirl flaps inside, mounted on spindles which are attached by little drop links to electric motors mounted on the outside of the manifold. The mechanism wears out prematurely so the linkages become loose and sloppy (sometimes the drop links become detached at one end - usually the spindle end). The looseness causes the engine management system to detect an error in the amount of movement in the flaps, and the engine warning light comes on. This causes a slight drop off in performance but not by very much. However, the car will fail an MOT.

    Audi's official solution is to replace the entire manifold, flap and motor assembly, at a cost of around £700 per bank. A less drastic solution is to have the mechanism repaired and modified (I had that done on mine by Fontain, the indie Audi specialist from whom I bought the car) at a cost of £225 per bank. If you are mechanically gifted yourself (I am not) I think I might have a link to a repair guide on my home pc. The least costly option is to leave the faulty linkage as it is, and have the fault code mapped out to that the engine management system just ignores it.

    As to your question about the auto box (note; it's Tiptronic, not Triptronic), the steering wheel mounted paddle switches were an optional extra, so some will have the, some won't. As with all things Audi, they can be retro-fitted. We have a forum member - NHN - who does this for a living.

    Hope that helps.

    Jeff.
