    White Smoke from exhaust?

    Thats exactly how i felt after getting mine sorted, especially after they flagged my TD1 after repairing. They said the engine warranty was gone because of it so lost faith and sold it.

    What was the outcome of this?

    White Smoke from exhaust?

    Another thing on my side was that it was a 14 plate with revision 1 turbo that were prone to blowing as well documented on this site (I think they are at revision 5 now) so maybe they weren’t surprised that it blew. Obviously the tune took it over the edge.

    They picked it up because it broke down on way to them. It was luckily when the omissions scandal broke so maybe they were preoccupied with other shit. When I received it back the heater was working so we took it back in, they said they sorted but didn’t so it went back in again. This time they found it had been mapped and that any work needed that they could blame on the map wouldn’t be carried out. I lost interest in it then and chopped it in with Mercedes on my current A45. Never heard anything since.

    When mine did this one Saturday I carried on using it, the following Thursday it went pop. VW replaced Turbo Cat and a brand new engine. Turns out the engine sucked in the bits of broken turbo and rendered it knackered. Had a stage one tune done the previous Saturday. VW picked up car as it was un driveable and luckily didn’t pick up on turn. Replaced everything at cost of roughly £14,000 they said all on warranty. Got it back about 2 weeks later and returned to tuner to have original map put back on.

    Coming back?

    Considered the A35 AMG? Appears to be on par with the Golf.

    Coming back?

    I think your knowledge of the A45 is very limited at best. I’ve had mine about 2 and a half years now and am still to find 3 suspension settings. There are 2. In comfort it’s about the same as my MK7 R was, admittedly is is firmer in sportier setting but is very affective when driving hard.
