    BKD engine rough idle

    My car has developed a rougher than normal idle, jumping from 900rpm to 1K or dipping to around 850rpm. Sounds as if the engine is cutting out for a split second then back to normal. It only happens when its not up to temperature. Sorry if this has a thread already but was wondering if anyone...

    Hi. I have a 54 Sportback 2.0 TDI with factory fitted rear parking sensors. Sadly it was written off by the bf last month. So now I have a lovely 1.4 TFSI S-Line Hatchback and wondered if I can fit the parking sensors from the TDI straight across or if there would be any snags. Thanks

    Frankenstein 2.0 tdi a3 8v

    Had a wild idea of boring out a 2.0l tdi engine from the a3 8v to a 2.5l, while using the internals from the 2.5l v6. Curious on how impossible it would be, if the bore is too big or if someone has done a smaller bore like a 2.1l. Money isn't a problem and i don't want to just get a v6 because...
