    2.0 TDI Poor MPG?

    CR 170 Quattro, DIS says 42 mpg over the last 38,000 miles. Round town I'm hitting 38-40 mpg and on a run 46-50. lucky if I get 520 out of 55L Nowhere near as economical as my old 07 FWD BKD with a darkside turbo. that was always 50 plus and 600 out of 53L

    Q3 Climate Control 8P Retrofit

    Best Interior mod I've done in my opinion. With the way dashboards are going nowadays, the older dashboards are looking older quicker!
