Hi,

i am running A5 cab with 1.8TSFI 125kw manual. We have changed new sparks. Accelerating from 0 kmh on first gear is not as easy as I will expect. The gearbox itself has very long gears (2400rpm on 6th at 140mkh) but the engine is letargic under 1500rpm, when it comes to some slope , you have to slide clutch to let car move forward more than on other cars. On reverse its peace of cake - it is far shorter ratio.

does someone else experiencing same Behavior ?

thank you

Hello mate and welcome to this great forum!!!! I have no experience of your engine sorry but you will know that your engine has a long story of problems such as the oil consumption right?? Have a search on here. As far as I know that worst offender was the 2.0L petrol engine.
In general terms you have a combination of a heavy car with a small engine so your car will never be a rocket ship. I suggest that you give her a very full service and change all of the filters and fluids and see how she feels. Good work!!!

Yes I know the story of 1.8TFSI, this is gen 3 so major piston rings issues are solved. But here it is not about dynamics, but about to start car moving , you have to work with clutch more than I was expecting… (clutch is brand new) maybe it is a normal behavior -

I will try 98+ octane petrol, now I have 95 octane, but on petrol fill cap is 95 even 91 written …
