New owner but have I bought the wrong A1?

Postby pop80_uk » Mon Jan 23, 2017 9:07 am

Hey all,
I have just changed from a new Fiesta ST to an Audi A1 2.0 TDI Sline Black edition.

Stupidly I just really liked the looks and did not give the engine too much of a thought, as it seems great on the test drive and really nippy.

However I now have a bit of buyer remorse and concern, I only do about 15 - 20 minutes journeys in the week and maybe 30 - 40 miles every 2 - 3 weeks. I assumed that due to this being a small city car that the engine would be fine for this type of works and tuned as such.

However I am reading more and more about diesels and the 2.0 TDI it appears I was wrong and if I am potentially killing the EGR and DPF and am setting myself up for a costly bill.

Obviously a bit gutted, ultimately I know its my own fault but I just assumed a city car would be designed to deal with situations encountered in the city (short journeys / stop start driving)

So guess I am just looking for opinions, is my remorse correct? :? :?
