    Poor MPG on 1.6TDI Sport!!!

    Unlucky purchase. I had a right set to with Audi over my 1.6TDI. I got one when they first came out. Ran it for two years and was more than pleased to see the back of it. The computer may tell you it's returning 50+, I can assure you when measured at the pump (Which I kept record for EVERY tank...

    2.0TDI 170 (Automatic!!!)?

    Is the Automatic Gearbox a good thing on a 2.TDI 170? I have the chance to buy a BE ex-demo. Just a bit wary of the Auto box

    Audi A3 1.9TDIe 2009 Fuel Economy prob

    What the missing undertray will do will be absolute minimal I would imagine. Phil_W I have the 1.6TDI common rail engine and with regards to consumption and performance...beware!! It is sooo underpowered. When in low revs it struggles to get up slight hills, you have to drop a gear or two and...

    Service Indicator ReSet

    Cheers Mike. By the time I'm finished with the car the Stamp is immaterial!! However the last two services were done by Audi and on both occasions they 'forgot' to stamp the book. I appreciate the fact that I have an 'Upmarket' car but I don't appreciate being ripped off and cornered as it...

    Audi A3 1.9TDIe 2009 Fuel Economy prob

    I've had this problem on my 2010 1.6TDI which is supposed to return easy 60+. Despite regular battles with Audi UK nothing could be resolved. I've been lucky to get 48mpg!! Does your car have a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)? If so get that checked. Other than that I would certainly replace...

    Service Indicator ReSet

    Just gave my car a good seeing to. Done all the usual servicing jobs but can't seem to lose the servicing indicators on the DIS or Mileometer. Do I have to get this done via VAGCOM or can I do it without?

    Disgusted by AUDI WATFORD!!!

    There seems to be an air of complacency within Audi Dealerships just now. I hope somewhere out there an employee of the company picks up on this thread and distributes it amongst their collegues. My experience is one of discust, so much so I refuse to even go near my local Dealer(s) which is...
