    272 quattro 3.0d

    You went to Bobby Singh too?! I went in August last year. Had a dms map on from 60k miles n then at 98k went to him. Now on 105k miles. I'll be honest I never really felt the dms tune was always consistent, always felt like I was missing something. I'm shocked how much smoother n happy the...

    Audi a4 272 tdi rattle/scraping chain sound whilst accelerating round corner

    Hello all, Since the weather has got warmer and my windows are down I've noticed a weird rattling sound that sounds like it's coming from the camshaft area or chain tensioners. I have heard that the early 3.0tdis from 2015 to 2016 did suffer from camshaft and chain tensioner issues so Im quite...

    Cold start noise A4 B9 3.0tdi

    Isn't this injector ticking sound normal? Perhaps it sounds more pronounced in real as in the video it's hard to really make out. I've done 97k miles in mine I think it's always made that sound when cold but I can't hear anything out of the ordinary from inside the cabin. One thing I did...

    Calling all S4 TDI owners

    In regards to cooling do you mean installing a new intercooler? Does your s4 have adaptive suspension? I think the one I drove probably didn't have the gearbox update, hence the embarrassingly bad lag and driveability

    Calling all S4 TDI owners

    I think the s4 I test drove wasn't a great example. It was fast yes, but only when really giving the throttle a kick. Where as on my tuned 272 tdi u can feather the throttle and make rapid progress. From the opinions of current owners, perhaps your cars are properly run in? What's the mileage...

    Selling my tuned a4 272!

    No.. It isn't. Only did mine at the time as I was going for the bitdi look which I recall had the v6t badge. I know ur prob thinking.. It's not an s4.. Yeah I know! But it's still a v6t and it feels faster to me than the petrol equivalent.

    Also I understand the weight difference is due to the hybrid. Felt like a barge in comparison to mine lol

    Calling all S4 TDI owners

    Which spec do you have on the s5? Seeing that you have the adaptive suspension and dynamic steering? Was always curious to know what dynamic steering is like.. I like the facelift s5 but after having an a5 s line courtesy car about a year ago I felt the ride was a bit too firm for my liking...

    Calling all S4 TDI owners

    To all the s4 tdi owners: I test drove a 70 plate s4 black edition saloon. Thoughts - the engine feels a lot more rough compared to my tuned 272? I have heard complaints of the 50tdi being rough compared to the 272 predecessor and if the s4 is more related to the 50tdi I definitely noticed the...

    Is my car remapped???

    The tcu remap was simply a obd adaptor from tmc motorsport that plugs into the obd Whilst it's plugged in you wait less than a minute and it starts beeping to let you know the file has been uploaded. You then take it out, turn the ignition off then start the engine to idle for 5 minutes and ur...

    S4 tdi adaptive suspension reviews?

    I don't know how the guys without the adaptive deal with it! I test drove an s4 black edition with a normal sports suspension and found it way too firm for my liking. I have the adaptive sports suspension on my tuned 272 n also has the 19s, glides and is feels almost as good as air at times...

    Is my car remapped???

    The DMS map was around £400 if I remember correctly. They sent someone out to remap the car on my drive. I'm led to believe it's a custom map as they made quite a few changes a couple of times. It took less than an hour to do the whole proccess. The tmc motorsport tcu module was £300 and you...
