Hi all.

New to the forum as I'm looking to purchase an a5 coupe 3.0 v6 tdi. Seen as mint looking red one, but the seller says its down on power. Doesn't smoke and no eml. I know this is quite an open question but what potentially could this be?

Sellee suspects blown turbo on inlet manifold issue. But if it was the inlet manifold (swirl flaps) it'd show and eml and blown turbo it'd be really down on power and smoke.

It's quite far for me to go for it to be not worth purchasing but I could plug vcds into it once I got there. Just wondering if there's something obvious to someone and hopefully simple it could be.

Cheers

Hoping to go look at the car potentially this weekend, so if anyone has any advice that would be most appreciated.
Thanks!

I think you know the answer really.

If it was a cheap simple fix, surely the current owner would have sorted it.

Walk away & keep looking - it will be worth it in the end.
