    177bhp Quattro fuel economy?

    thanks guys. I had already considered a map before picking her up. It just doesn't fathom that a 3.0tdi Q saloon can return better mpg on same driving style just because it had smaller boots??! (both cars manual too). Map it is then, in the near future.

    177bhp Quattro fuel economy?

    Hi folks, I've just bought a fully loaded Black Edition Monsoon Grey 177bhp Quattro Avant at the weekend. Having had a B6 19.tdi quattro many years ago, a 2.5 tdi also in the past and more rec ently a 143bhp B7 S line, i had thought that the economy would smash alll these out of the park. it...

    MMI bluetooth problems- iphone??

    Craig- Once again your font of knowledge has shown me up with a schoolboy error- i was trying to do it on the hop, rather than with the car stationary:keule: I seem to recall that BMW BT systems are always paired in ignition setting 2, but i thought that with audis it wasn't the case. Oh well...

    New A4 3.0tdi owner

    Nice! Just picked mine up last weekend too, having come over from the 'darkside' for the last 2 years. Audis have come on in leaps & bounds imho. I've only driven mine twice, but I love it! only got 18s on it, which feel fine. despite the high mileage (in the 90s) it drives like new!! Remap, yes...

    MMI bluetooth problems- iphone??

    Hi guys I've just bought a B8 A4, with what I thought was a full media options pack. It has a phone cradle in the armrest, when i go into 'set-up', 'bluetooth options', the only options i ger are - change pincode & remove all devices. I was expecting to find one for search for new devices as...

    Ok Stu thanks. any issues with driveshaft/haldex box with extra torque? I guess that SC can 'unlock' if it is locked?

    3.0tdi Quattro S line- Remap??

    Hi, I'm finally back into an audi after a bit of RWD wilderness, picking up an ex company car 08 plate saloon this week. Has anyone on here mapped a 240 3.0tdi? I was going to probably use Simon at Emaps who always does a decent job with Bimmers for under £300. Warranty isn't an issue due to...

    2.0 TFSI cambelt change??

    I'm looking at a used 2006 car with 90k, the belt has not bgeen done. I was initially alarmed, but then when i did the research, i found what the selling indy dealer had told me, ie that these do not require compulsory changing until 180000km (115,000M ). (that was from Audi themselves!) Has...

    What to go for:- 2.7tdi S line or 3.0tdi Q S line

    And do Revo or anyone else do cruise control stalk retro fit? io seem to remember that someone used to do it with the B6s?

    What to go for:- 2.7tdi S line or 3.0tdi Q S line

    fair point, but aside from the sound of the V6, there are also the reliability issues. does the 170 2.0 suffer the same oil pump problems synonymous with the 140 2.0 tdi engine range?
