    Question about 2018 S6

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello I am currently considering buying a used 2018 S6. I know unfortunately that the 4.0t motor suffers from turbo failures related to a poorly designed oil mesh filter and check valve. I am aware of the tsb related to this for updated parts. Is there a way to confirm from the vin if it has the updated parts from the factory?

    I'd be happy to look around for you and perform some due diligence, just be advised that I am not a fully equipped technical resource so I may not be able to provide all of the information you're looking for. We can start with the VIN of the vehicle though and go from there? Let me know your thoughts!

    Thank you,

    for the mesh filter take the engine cover off and look in-between the turbos and look for the last letter on the black piece. that will tell you which version you have
