    Hi,
    Been on and off here over the years and finally seen the light and come back to Audi.
    I have a 2014 2.0tdi (174ps) A5 Sportback and have been offered the diesel emission software update.
    Has anyone had this.
    Seen on the internet that some people throughout VW/Audi etc have had problems after the update.
    I'm of the opinion if it ain't broke don't try and fix it.
    Ian

    I can show you a dyno printout that was done on a vag (think it was a golf) did a run stock. Then went ahead with the emissions scandal. After driving sluggish it went for another dyno for comparrison. Sure it was around 30ish bhp it was down

    I didn't do mine as the car has always run very nicely. I officially opted out - it is not compulsory. As you say, if it ain't broke don't fixe it.

    Agreed with everyone else don't do it. I've got a 2014 A5 2.0 TDI and I've only heard bad things about getting it done.
