Morning everyone, hows tricks...due to my job and the travelling involved (and the fact i like to drive) ive decided the way forward for me is a diesel....coming from a person that was as much anti derv as dent reform (if you know the name, you probably know who im on about..lol) i now think an oil burner has as much to offer as a petrol, but im a little stuck...and thats where i hope my first of many posts can be answered:

im looking at an audi a6 2.5 v6 tdi, on a T plate (not that it looks it) and done over 100k...what are the main gripes on this model...hows the mpg round town and on a run etc??

someone, anyone care to help? all opinions welcome good, bad whatever...

regards

Dave

The 2.5 tdi will never be as good as the 1.9tdi. I will try to find what power they are. The v6 is a very smooth unit, but I'd say it's 15-20% less fuel effiecient than the 1.9.

both have got to be better than a mk4 golf 1.8t on juice you'd think, or hope...i know the A4 like the bora is remappable but be nice to find out figures if you could?

The 2.5tdi seems to be 150bhp in a T reg. I'd say you would get 40 out of it. But a 1.9 would be as quick though.
