    2.0tdi issue and preventative maintainance

    Hi, I'm posting here instead of the Q3 section given that it'll be the same engine, and hoping for a wide audience. My wife owns a 2.0tdi 140 which has recently started flagging a flashing coil on the dash intermittently which sends the car into limp. Turning the engine on and off solves it...

    Vagcom USB lead - what's it worth

    After someone asked about me parting with my original Vagcom lead, I decided to look and see what it was worth! Noticing that these are still going for upto near on £200 2nd hand (think mate was thinking about the price of a knock off lead). I have no use for this anymore having jumped to BMW a...

    Hi chaps, just wondering what the differences are.... firstly have both these cars got touch screen sat nav and is the 2011 car a different nav? My requirements are a 3.0tdi with xenons (rare I know) and nav as a minimum, just want to make sure without having to run around looking at 2011 cars...

    Another 'what's it worth' thread :D

    Ok chaps, time for me to go, I've decided to get rid in favour of a 3.0tdi A6 avant - this will serve several purposes, the first of which will be me growing up!! the avant will obviously have space for my two large dogs, instead of me having to put the S3's seats down constantly, the mpg will...

    Mapped C6 3.0 Tdi 1/4 mile and 0-60...anyone bothered :D

    As above chaps, i know its not what this cars about and its probably better gauging midrange instead..... I will be gutted to lose the pace of my S3 and wanted to find out how far i'll be off the mark - saw a post on pistonheads where a lad claims to be keeping with scoobies/RS focus which i...

    A4 3.0TDI MPG what do you get?

    In my quest to research the range of diesels I am now considering the 3.0 tdi after much deliberation. I've ascertained there are two versions, the 203 and 230bhp models, ideally i think I need to look at a pre march 2006 for the tax and is it the DLV model which is the later engine? Having...
