    I'll have to get in touch with the garage that has been working on my car for a while now, and see if they have done a compression test already or not. if not I might have to book it in and go from there. And by decoke, you mean the BG cleaning you mentioned before?

    Just watched the video and it's quite helpful, unfortunately, I don't have the means to do the testing myself. As for the symptoms, I don't think I have any of those symptoms. Idles smoothly when hot and cold, performance seems alright. and my MPG is 25mpg around the city and on a run, I can...

    Well, I've already had a fair bit replaced on the car. If it's not the EGR it will most likely be an internal issue. how can you check the EGR valve?

    Yeah, it is a nice setup from what I can tell, a nice fat torque curve right in the middle of the rev range, perfect for some spirited driving. I was having a look at the tuning guides and the known issues and problems with the engines and I believe I might have the oil burn issue...

    oh, mine is a 2007 model, so it would more than likely be the EA113?

    Errmm I'm not sure which engine it is, is there a quick and easy way to find out or do I need to start digging around the engine bay to find it. All I know currently is that it is allegedly a 2.0T TFSI at 200Bhp or thereabout. Thanks for the links though.

    How much is the BG clean service roughly and also is there a centre near Worcester? I don't think I'm lacking power but then again I might not have ever had full power since the car was so miss treated when I got it, I've had it just over a year and I've been fixing more important things over time.

    Oh, I see, I wasn't really aware of this, I just thought it was the standard replace the two tyres on the same axle at a time. I'll have to keep that in mind when I come to change my tyres next time, not sure when that will be though with how long these tyres are lasting currently. This might...

    Sounds Nice, especially the extra bit of power and toys. Ahh I see, the Goodyear's are a bit soft. I'm running some Pilot sport 4's at the moment, awesome tyres. what's this about having to change all 4 tyres at the same time though? not really heard that before.

    Seems you have had a few Audi's to say the least lol, What was different to the Lemans A4 compared to the standard one? totally understand the fuel cost issue though, my A3 has the 2.0 Tfsi engine and Quattro as well, how come you were chewing through tires though? I've done nearly 14,000 on my...

    It has been a while, Thought to myself I need to stop being an anti-social bugger and say hi to everyone lol. Car wise it's been an eventful time. I think Last time I was here I had a Celica T-Sport, Awesome car but it was a bit to low for me so I swapped to something more practical. So I ended...

    New Tires Soon

    All food for thought, will definitely have to do some proper investigation when I have financially recovered from buying the car. Mind I also emailed the guys and tyrereviews.co.uk and to my surprise they came back to me. They gave me a few links to look at that I'll list below and then...

    Are the TWI only listed on the tires or are they also listed on the websites as well? all I have found is the labeling witch states Wet grip, Fuel efficiency, and Noise Rating.

    Ouch only 6 months? that's surprising but not at the same time in a way, to get all that grip they must have been really soft, or you spent most the time sliding the car ;-)
