You say "affected" but do you actually know what the ramifications are?

There will be a recall to remove the software I'd imagine, but what after that? The defeat device worked to reduce NOx emissions not CO2, so there should be no VED/tax implications

I'll be honest I don't know. My worry is, will 'fixes' reduce mpg?

That's my worry too.

The California emissions regs are horrifically stringent, hence the device. Europe's aren't as bad, so as long as they still meet Euro spec then why bother.

Seems it's not just the 8V A3 owners that are NOW concerned? Funny that.

I'm not worried at all. My pal works at Audi and he said you will see no change or effect to you or your vehicle. How true that is no one actually seems to know. I work in the car industry and spoke to a few people from different sectors and everyone has said the same. The media as blown it up and it's something or nothing.

I've read that while this is a disaster for VAG as it knocks down all it claims to stand for environmentally etc, the much bigger issue for big companies is, if this could have happened to VAG, it could happen anywhere else, so corporate governance will now be under the spotlight. Big businesses were said to have sniggered when the banks messed up and thought "it could not happen to us" - that way of thinking just seems to have changed.

Affected +1

I wonder if this will be complusary or not? and if so how they will enforce it.

I am hoping we can just ignore any recall.

Looks like the lower power 2.0 TDI's are okay.

Moderators - I think a sticky might be a good idea.

My 2010 A4 2.0tdi S-line Quattro Avant (170) and my wife's 2013 A4 S-line saloon (177) are both affected.
Apparently the defeat fix will involve both hardware and software fixes and will affect fuel economy or performance or both.
Some people have stated its something of nothing - not the point as I feel very cheated by the VW group and if they offer a buy back my Audi is going for sure !

What will they do with all the many many 1000's of people that were forced to have dpf removal I wonder ?

Mine is also affected. Even though it is 88kw version. Not good. I will now lose the remap. It has to be done, because otherwise it will fail MOT.
Finnish or german sites did not tell the info but the link on the top had the information.

I wonder how many people who are affected have had a remap or already dpf removal ?
Mods, could we prob do a poll to see ?
