So I think its time for an engine Rebuild, and while searching the internet i read somewhere to use oversized pistons 83mm. My engine is a BWT with standard 82.5mm pistons. Will it make since to use larger pistons?

Strip it first and see how the bores look before spending your monies it might guide you down a different path

Would do that but since Ill have to order the parts online it would take weeks to get the car operating.

They have a lower compression ratio, would it make a difference?

Did it help with the oil consumption issue?
