    I was in an Audi showroom the other day and saw a sportback with just 2.0 on the rear. There was also a 3 door version which said 1.6FSI. Does the sportback not carry the FSI badge anymore?

    I know the turbo is badged as 2.0T and the diesel as 1.9 or 2.0TDI and I am sure that the sportback does not exist with a 2 liter non FSI engine. Anyone here own a 2.0FSI sportback? How is yours badged?

    Have seen a number of 2.0 FSi Sportbacks new in at a local dealer and test driven another. None had the FSi badges.

    Perhaps the FSI fad has worn off - not quite the sales feature that Audi hoped for. Their FSI engined R8 running out of petrol at Le Mans can't have helped.

    Read in audi driver mag that they are dropping the stratisfied mode of FSI at least for the A6 3.2 since most of the time it is running in homogeneous mode

    Why donĀ“t bay one then? Audi most have them as spare parts for the 3door a3?
