    im just wondering how the 2wd gear box ratios differ from the quattro versions.i have a 2.0tdi quattro and its geared to do:
    1st 24mph 2nd 42mph 3rd 63 mph 4th 90 mph and maxing out at a calculated 135 in 6th.
    after reading a review in audi driver they critisise the gear ratios of the quattro but im just interested in how they differ in the a3 and golf 2.0tdi

    According to a road test back in March 2003 the A3 2.0 TDI manual was gearered to give the following ratio/mph per1000rpm.
    1st - 3.77/5.7
    2nd - 2.09/10.3
    3rd - 1.32/16.3
    4th - 0.98/21.9
    5th - 0.98/27.4
    6th - 0.81/33.1
    final drive 3.45(1-4) and 2.76 (5-6)

    Hope this is of some help.

    I haven't got properly used to my new Quattro yet. Not driven anything that requires the change into 2nd so quick.
