    Now audi p8, 2.0 tdi bkd, in past vw passat 2001 , 1.9 TDI , AVF
    Ireland, Dublin
    Hi folks, have replaced my old ish vw passat, but still perfect condition (now my dad is driving it) with 3 door Audi A3 p8 (s-line) 2.0 tdi , bkd engine, 138 hp, year 2008.
    Car has 165 k miles, full service history, done in one audi dealer garage (receipts with creditcard payment slips - so no fake) .
    Car was due service and second timing belt .
    After analyzing service history, came to conclusion that car was doing 25-30 k miles a year, and serviced only once a year, so wonder would that affect engine, even if long life oil used.
    Car is not smoking, and going good.
    Passed test without an issues.
    I have replaced timing belt and all possible filters, thermostat and engine oil.
    I have noticed that car is a bit thirsty, driving mostly in city, traffic. 8-9 l/100 km. Timing is a bit advanced -2 degrees.
    While working on car, noticed that intercooler pipe connections ar greasy.. well greasy, and i suspect there is an boost leaks. Anyone would advice where to get reasonably priced intake pipe kit ? Might even would replace intercooler, to avoid clip connections.

    Any other things to look for that beauty?

    If it was doing mostly highway driving, it's not as bad as city due to the cold starts and engine cycles.

    You can go a little longer on the engine oil but 30k miles is way too long! But if it's running fine, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it since it's done.

    The intake pipes may just need fresh o-rings. They often seep a little oil as well.
