Since the weather has got warmer and my windows are down I've noticed a weird rattling sound that sounds like it's coming from the camshaft area or chain tensioners.
I have heard that the early 3.0tdis from 2015 to 2016 did suffer from camshaft and chain tensioner issues so Im quite...
Apologies if im posting on the wrong place.
Thought I'd write it here as there must be long time lurkers on the forum that go through the posts so didn't wanna miss anyone that may be interested.
Selling my tuned a4 272 for sale...
To all the s4 tdi owners:
I test drove a 70 plate s4 black edition saloon.
Thoughts - the engine feels a lot more rough compared to my tuned 272? I have heard complaints of the 50tdi being rough compared to the 272 predecessor and if the s4 is more related to the 50tdi I definitely noticed the...
Currently considering upgrading from my dms mapped a4 272 tdi to a new s4 tdi vorsprung.
Now my a4 has the adaptive sport suspension and the ride quality is excellent.
I have no complaints even with the 19 inch alloys.
I wanted to know if any s4 tdi owners have the adaptive sport...
Was just on the Audi configurator looking at the S4 Vorsprung but can't see the option for a flat bottom steering wheel?
Was considering upgrading but can't stomach the thought of the normal wheel over the flat bottom one.
Maybe they can't add all the controls to the flat...
I was looking into the sound actuators for my 272 as I wanted a similar sound to the older bitdis and the new s tdis.
The s7 tdi I test drove had a very nice v8 rumble even though it was fake it didn't feel it as the way the car drove matched the sound imo.
Here's a link to a sound I really...
Had my car in at Audi for some warranty work today and got lended a fwd 40tfsi avant.
I must say was damn impressed with the performance!
Had a a5 40tdi before which was of course more torqey but the tfsi version was much more responsive, maybe even quicker overall.
Surely it must be more...
Had my a4 272 for 3 years now and had a tdi tuning box on for most that time.
I recently noticed when starting the car first thing in the morning the car started juddering violently and the revs were hunting.
The start stop fault came on and the car cut out.
It happened again just...
So I've been to the dealers for so called 'software updates' related to the ecu and ever since I've been back the car is definitely feeling different.
The gear changes are not as firm as before but are a lot smoother, almost imperceptible. The car also feels somewhat faster but I'm...
So I was just on the Amd tuning website today and noticed they have a proper remap for the 272 3litre tdi
Has anyone done this yet?
I've got the tdi tuning box and for the most part it's very good.
Just wanted to know whether a remap really is that worth it over the tuning box.
So my pcp will be finished in 2 years.
I'm considering to either upgrade early or within the year.
Considering either an s4, rs5 b9 or the new a7
I really really like the sound of the s4/s5 (think it sounds way better than the rs4/5 but only concerned about how much of a jump it would be...
To all the 272 and even s4 owners - has your car ever had issues with launching via the zf 8 speed?
The last few times I've launched from 3500rpm the car hasn't had that same sling shot rapid acceleration feel it normally gives.
It's as if It doesn't want to? Possibly straining my...
Just thought I would post an update on the TCU flash I brought a month ago to help combat the lag on my mapped 272tdi.
Done over 1k miles since then and everything seems to have bedded in well.
There is quite a difference now with how the car reacts to the throttle and also an...
Currently have a long journey up north today and wanted to know if there's anyone in the north west London area who does vcds.
Wanted to play a movie on the mmi whilst driving for the kids!
So something extremely bizarre happened today when I woke up and went to start my car.
All windows were down half open and from when I last remember yesterday night I can pretty much confirm all windows were up and the car was locked -_-
My first thoughts were that someone had tried...
I've been contemplating to complete the black edition style pack ever since I brought my car back in August ( was meant to be on the order in the first place!)
So last Thursday I took my car to Wrench studios in Hayes, (a friend of mines brother owns the place)
So they wrapped the...
Hope you are all keeping well!
So I've had my CRTD4 on for almost a month now and I am pleased to say that the performance seems to be getting stronger by day!
I have just crossed 3k miles and have noticed that the engine is starting to really loosen up, I do still feel the...
I have finally picked up my A4 Saloon last Thursday and my oh my, what ever doubts I had before hand have been cleared!
- LOOKS/OPTIONS : I ordered the car with the adaptive sports suspension (nice n low) mythos black, 19 inch v spoke titanium alloys, matrix LED lights, s line, B&0...
My car should be here very soon, ( early August) n will want to remap it for sure!
Thing is I'm not sure whether or not the ecu has been hacked for this? My current car is remapped with tdi tuning but I also had a tuning box through them which I can upgrade to the new car which is also...
I have my mythos black 272 tdi s line on order n was going through it on the audi tracker the other day but could
not see all my options listed??
It had the B&0 among a few others but did not have important stuff like the piano black inlays which is a must for me!
Could this just be...
