    Thank you, I've enquired with the garage about taking it in. Out of interest what's the correct oil for my model? Also where can I find out correct brake pad fitment so I can order those online.

    A6 1.9 TDI Fuel Consumption

    I just bought a bottle of injector cleaner, is that likely to help at all? The other bits you mention above, are they expensive for a mechanic to diagnose?

    A6 1.9 TDI Fuel Consumption

    Thank you for the reply, would any of those cause such a drastic change in consumption? Also if this helps, it suddenly the other day got 150 for £20 then today 100 miles for £20 with similar driving style, can this help point to what the issue may be. Just had the cambelt changed.

    Transmission Swap

    Unfortunately the 4motion range on golf and bora were manual only although they did an automatic v64motion passat i think, could that transmission fit? I prefer the S3 to the new a3 3.2 and also the 1999 S3's are selling around 10/11k with highish miles whereas those 3.2's are 20k too much money.
