hi all,

a colleague of mine was selling his cat d a5 3L coupe as the engine light came on and was in limp mode..

Quick scan later showed it was the dpf causing issues.. so I offered him £1000 cash collection at the weekend, I now find myself owning a silver 58 plate a5 which I can’t lie is just a lovely drive and a lovely place to be..

only owned the car a week and I’ve fully detailed the interior which was in such bad shape It took 3 days alone to sort, removed the dpf sorted that and refitted which took about 3/4 hours in total and got it mapped, now running about 290/300hp all I need to do now is source a pair of bumpers and paint from the swag line done which me and a friend are doing next bank holiday and it will then be mint! Also fitted a set of new hid bulbs.. I’ll try to remember to take pictures as I go and fill you all in 🤙🏻

Anyone else had this code? Any help would be appreciated!

Reading into it abit it looks like the gears inside the throttle are wearing and don’t allow it to close fully so throws up a fault, I’m going to order a new actuator and go from there! I’ll keep you filled in!

Yeah bud it’s a cat d, but I’m fixing all the wrongs at the moment.. picked up a s-line rear bumper this evening for it I’m hoping I can swap over my none s-line diffuser into it as it’s got the cut outs for 2 exhausts, do you know what the difference is between the two as they seem to look the same?
