    Always a tough one.
    Is it a Red eye 110 bhp Tdi or 90 BHp if 90 go for the 1.8T

    Also a hard one do you want to tune it up?
    Tdi will use alot less fuel too
    Tdi is more to Tax

    I always use an insurance quote to make my decision on cars

    Yes the tdi is the 110 red eye,engine wise the car is going to be left standard,fuel comsumption isnt really an issue as most of the time it would be stuck in rush your traffic anyway. im going to check on the insurance but its difficult to decide as aprt from the engines the cars are very simillar spec !!!

    If economy is not an isuue, i think you have answered your own question to be honest. I regret not having bought a Turbo car, but mine ticked most of the boxes so i sacrificed.I will be swapping mine out soon, but its by no means a straight forward job.

    You will be stuck with whatever you decied, so think wisely

    I would go for the 1.8t as standard that will be faster than you could ever tune the 1.9tdi unless you start going crazy.
    The 1.8t exhaust chip and a panel filter or drill the air box and you will easy see over 200BHP.

    Just depends what floats your boat. I have had my 1.8t sport for 3 years now and soo glas i never went for a diesel. If it was a PD150 deisel which they dont pu in A4s then that would be a different story.

    As you will be in rush hour traffic it depends if you can stand the diesel tractor noise - especially in summer with the windows down.
    This is what decided it for me.

    The X reg (2000??) Tdi would be 130 bhp rather than 110 wouldn't it?

    Im quite pleased about the interior as is grey with the sports style seats that give a bit more support than standard and their cloth which is nice as im not a big fan of leather !!!
