Hey Guys,

What different power options are available from the 2.0TDI engine? Is it just 140 and 170 like the MK5?

Are both available in quattro as well?

It will remap up near 200 bhp!! The B6 1.9tdi did come in a quattro 130bhp that would remap 165-170

170s have the down side of only getting an extra 20bhp or so with a remap, the drink fuel (with a quattro the avg seems to be about 35-39mpg on runs and less in town) and they have a DPF which also drinks fuel when it self cleans.

i looked at the 170s and instead went for a lighter 140 and chipped it to 170, and im so glad I did,

also the 170 can be had in FWD but its not as common.

I find the remap helps fuel economy too. My golf is running 191 BHP and easily beats my audi by 10 mpg, even on a short run. Last Friday, I average 56.9mpg over 446 miles then Saturday 54.6 mpg over 160 miles - both were in the golf ( Saturdays run was more... "spirited" shall we say ?)

is that a proper worked out MPG? or by the cars dash computer? if its the dash knock off 10% [;)]

Im very sad and have a spreadsheet that works it out for me, but it dd prove that the car over read, so I chnaged the readings with vag com... its now only about 2-3% out but it under reads so if the car says 49mpg ive really done 50, which helps make sure i max the fuel econonomy

Yeah he's fine, he just doesn't do the forum thing much nowadays. We're overdue a game of badminton as it goes [:)]
