    Just boght a 2006 2.0tdi ex fleet with 96K on it.

    Drives just fine but when iddling and you give it a few revs you can here a whine noise which increases and decreases with the revs, is this normal?

    Thanks for that, seems quite a few others say the same thing, the car flys and am very happy with it, last serviced 4k ago by Audi, so hopefully this is just a 'characteristic'.

    my old turbo lasted 12 months and three weeks and decided to fill the exhaust with oil. Some might last for ever but some wont!

    A couple of the 2.0tdi company cars at work have gone well past 200k on the original turbo, so I still believe it will not necessarily go provided you avoid a remap.
