    Hello A3 Gurus. I currently have a 2007 B7 A4 TDI 170 with the BRD engine. To date I have had the injector issues which were replaced by Audi and im driving a car waiting for balance shaft problems which is not nice as you can imagine. Im considering selling and getting the A3 as I no longer need a large family car. I know injectors was a recall but the balance is not to date but they redesigned it throughout 2005-2008 and seem to have eradicated it for when they released the current shape A4, late 2008 onwards. The A3 8P was produced until 2012, so when I can I be 99% sure that im buying a car without these issues looming over me? Thanks Jay.

    The A3 doesn't use the same setup, so wont have balance shaft issues.

    That would explain why there is no sticky on the A3 forum, Great thank you.
