    Default for the next 5 days, i shall be mostly driving............

    an Audi A6 TDi, whilst my GSi has some bodywork repaired.

    Must admit very nice car and well equipt with all the toys - but when you plant ya right foot, lets say its very dis-appointing compared to my 9 year old GSi

    Suppose being a diesel and automatic wont help

    oh, i do like the handbrake switchy thing - no pulling up on my left arm - just a flick of a switch

    theres just no pick up - it seems to take an age to get up to speed

    It's likely to be a 1.9 or 2.0 TDI and I wouldn't be surprised if it was less than 150bhp, so I would imagine it is pretty poor. You could always remap it for them

    Feel free to come down south and try a 1.9 with more power and torque than your GSI and see what you are missing

    The most "popular" one is the 143PS TDIe it has a volume control rather than an accelerator pedal
