      They actually make ventless gas instant hot water heaters? These things burn a ton of fuel, I would NOT put one in a small space like a RV. Normally they intake and vent using 3-5in PVC to/from the...

      Don't hold your breath, Audi removed it from the B9 A4. :rolleyes: Don't expect it on the cheaper Jetta.
    3. Someone over at the 'zine has been rebuilding...

      Someone over at the 'zine has been rebuilding their oil burning MY2014 CAED 2.0T and noticed that the engine was using the old style ring setup. Some good pictures of old vs. new here:...

      The A3 was likely for looks. Since they needed to add an integrated side marker for the US market, they killed the amber blinker. Still weird that they would have two different tail lights. They...

      The reality is that its cheaper to make an all red LED assembly. The amber blinkers on the various per-sequential MLB Audi models likely meets FMVSS 108 requirements, but since many of those cars...

      USB Type-C ports, fancy. They weren't kidding that it was filled with the latest tech. :sly:

      While I don't have the car anymore, this didn't happen when pulling the oil cap when running. Just the usually vacuum pulling the cap off and rough running. I guess that car will forever be known as...

      Lack of AWD is a deal breaker for me. FWIW, back in 2006 I did look at the Mazdaspeed 6. I guess they are reluctant to offer it here after the MS6 did so poorly..... that and the SUVs that come with...

      A few things to consider with the A4 (I own one, never driven the Mazda)
      -AWD is available
      -Heated steering wheel is available with cold weather package, likely not a must have in CA and I doubt...

      Audi ditched Gotland Green for MY19 A4s, they replaced it with.... Quantum Gray. :what:

      The car got traded in this week. Managed to get a pretty good deal on a slightly used 2018 A4. Lets hope the EA888 Gen 3 is better behaved (3rd time's a charm?).

      Check your VIN above. My early build 2013 CPMA (built 04/2012) was NOT part of the affected engines and there have been no reported failures on CPMA...

      The CPMA is the US Spec flex fuel longitudinal 2.0TSI. It's a revision of the CAEB found in older A4s.

      I can't rule out the PCV, there is always that chance that the new part was defective. My...

      Any resolution to this? The CPMA 2.0T in my 2013 Audi A4 decided that it wanted to drink a ton of oil about 1.5 months ago with no outward signs of a problem (no smoke, leaks on the pavement, etc.)...

      Older VW/Audis use the valve on the heater core setup and they fail the same way. Like the Yaris, those older cars had a vacuum servo for the re-circulation vent and cables for everything else.

      I don't lease cars. The 1987 Audi did have an odometer replaced under warranty though. It was documented in the service booklet that came with the car.

      Its likely the odometer was legitimately replaced, possibly under warranty. Those VDO clusters weren't all that reliable and the odometer gears were known to break.

      Not all states require an odometer reading with registration renewal (NJ is one of them that doesn't ask). Many states also exempt new cars from emissions inspections for 4-5 years, well past the...

      The VIN is public information, its right on the dashboard of every car sold in the US and Canada. Also, dealerships aren't going to cut a key without positive ID and proof of ownership. Even then,...

      Its likely they were looking for a valet key (some dealerships shove them in the manual binder for some reason), or a key code, presumably to later steal the car. Thing is, the key code usually isn't...
