Was just wondering how I know which one I have. My car is a 04 plate A3 2.0 TDi. How do I know which one mine is and whats the difference between the 2 i.e which one is better?

04 will be a PD engine.

CR (Common Rail) Engines came in around 2009 I think (may be a bit off) they are a nicer engine.... quieter, more efficient etc but not that much wrong with the PD's apart from cold startup.
