I'm going to do the same tomorrow but I haven't had any rough idle since midday yesterday.

    I've been reading that the 1.8 from the B5 has less issues. Is that really true because I had a B5 Passat with the 1.8T and I got the 2.0T because I thought it would be more powerful in stock form and more reliable since it is newer than the B5.

    I'm buying the first engine of a new generation over the old proven engine that has been around for years that they got all the bugs out of ...

    is that what you just told me ? lol

    look at the bright side though . Its pretty easy to fix and more reliable than the debacle of a B8 engine ...

    I actually have my eye on a B5 2.8 litre manual Quatro. I love that car ... but I'm running out of car room and kids to give them to

    If only I had found an 05 Ultrasport instead of this 05.5 Avant 😀

    We just got rid of a 97 2.8 12v with a hair under 300k. We would have kept it too but a tree fell on it 😱😱

    The 2.8 12v might be the ultimate motor as far as reliability goes. The 30v is pretty great too. Tough to say. The 1.8T and the 2.2T are also pretty ledendary at this point as far as Audi motors go so maybe the 2.8 isnít the ultimate.

    haha in all honesty my purchase of the B7 was a total bust on my part. I didn't do research into trim levels, options, etc. It was 2 things that sold me on the B7 I loved the body shape and probably incorrectly I thought the 2.0T would be faster stock than the 1.8T. Haha running out of room and kids to give them to is a nice problem. Yeah the good thing is they are pretty easy to fix and AZ is a treasure trove of information and helpful members. My other problem is already here my driver CV boot is torn. It's just too cold for my dad to replace it. I already have the parts.

    I had both , the 2.8 12v in my Audi 90, fantastic engine and beyond timing belts I did nothing to it . loved it and lots of power for a small car. Then I had the 12v 30v in my A6. An anemic engine for that car, just not enough grunt to pull that A6 but engine gave me absolutely no issues and outlived the transmission. Was a great car actually , BIG , pig slow and a quarto , so naturally I gave it to my son as his first car and it looked after him through a few "learning experiences".

    Id get a car with those engines again no worries.
    the 1.8T is an iconic engine and not sure we will see an I.C.E. of that status ever again now that we are in the twilight of gasoline powered cars.

    still .. noting like the roar of an air cooled flat 6 as she sparks to life... 3 more moths ...
