Hi guys,

The emissions and fuel economy of the 1.6 TDI have been further improved!

The model is now exempt from congestion charge and (from year two) road fund licence!

Combined fuel consumption has been improved from 70.6mpg to 74.3mpg.

I think that's all the info you'll want, but the full info can be seen here: http://www.pooleaudi.co.uk/view-article/40/

Hope it helps

I haven't got the exact build week just yet but it's likely that any cars scheduled for build after week 30-ish will have the improvement. Obviously cars already built will not be effected, but will have updates carried out at service time to help improve efficiency.

Hope that helps

Hi Chris, is this based on fact (should I get my hopes up) or a guesstimate?

Do you know what exactly they have altered/changed to get those figures?

Sooo my build week 20 finally arrived on Saturday, my stepdad picked it up as I'm in Thailand for another week :( - hence no post to say wooo filled with pics!

Dealer has been saying it's not the new 99co2, even when picking it up! Told my stepdad to take a look at the service book anyways... LOW AND BEHOLD - 99co2!!!

Silly dealer! :D

Oh no this is always the case. Product enhancements (normally only software based) are a regular thing for Audi. Some of the older models are still getting tweaks now. You need to remember though that any enhancements made will not lower the vehicles registered co2 bracket.
