Thread: B8 A4 3.0 TDI things to look for

    Question B8 A4 3.0 TDI things to look for

    Ok,

    After numerous hours researching, I think I've decided milk and coke only come in 2L, so will instead go for the 3.0TDI B8 A4. As a platform, they offer a lot more bang for your buck if you plan to 'mildly' modify them (wish I still had those LM's).

    I'm off to check out a low mileage one this weekend. Anything I should be looking for?

    Cheers,
    Neil.

    DPF
    EGR system
    Intake manifold runner flaps
    Coolant leaks - water pump
    Turbo

    I’m sure there are more to add, but that’s what come right now to my mind.

    Just from my experience I’d add engine mounts and serpentine belt condition. I snapped two belts in 12 months which the mechanic said was down to poor design and sharp edges of the plastic pulleys...

    Pulleys were since replaced with alloy items...

    Took it for a spin up old pac today and I'm pretty chuffed. One owner from Killara who has realy looked after it.
