    The sludger brainwash...

    so a work colleague at work comes to me for a chat turns out he's bought a nice gleaming 13k audi A4 2.0 TDI and hes havin problems he sez its running like a bagoshit smoking bad when gunned and its using oil, he had it serviced at some dodgy outfit cos it was a good offer who couldnt tell him wot oil they had used and i asked him if it had a DPF cos they shouldnt smoke with a DPF, he said yes it has, i said well i hope ya givin it a good a run cos ya need to get it up to 40-50mph for long enough to to regen it,he said oh not really the missues drives it just round the shops and to her sisters n stuff and it prolly aint doin more than 2000 miles a year i said wot the fuck did you buy a sludger for? he said well its good on the MPG innit

    i said well you derserve all thats comin to ya mate

    i couldn't be arsed to stand there and talk to the f-ckin dickhead...

    I would say him not having it serviced properly is the cause of the trouble. 2,000 a year is fine in a well maintained diesel.

    ive never read such hogwash...2000 mile with prolly no DPF regen speeds and bunging it up with soot and carbon deposits with short hop town driving is prolly wots goosed it good style aswell...

    more to the point wheres the actual savings on MPG he was wobbling on about doin that kinda yearly mileage? when its prolly cost him 1500 to 2 grand more than the petrol equivelant and diesel is more expensive per litre too boot


    another tard sucked in by the ooh look at the sludger economy cobblers, the only owners that are gonna get the full benefit of one are motorway drivers doin monster mileages (wot they were designed for)...

    I would say the DPF on a 2.0TDi is the least of his problems reading all the issues that people are having with that engine..... I think that I should become a fortune teller, because I see big bills in the future for that owner....

    Just goes to show you that most of the general public have been brainwashed into buying the diesel car.

    They may do more mpg but are only cost effective if you do a higher mileage.

    Even then you can have expensive repair bills involving dual mass flywheels and dpf's.....

    My mates thought I was mad buying a 3.0 petrol but I only do approx 8k a year, and the car is going to loose bugger all as it only cost 3k

    To me proper maintenance includes DPF regeneration cycles.

    when he said it was using a lot of oil and the garage just said bring it in and we will top it up cos they couldnt tell him the oil they put in it the alarm bells were ringing for me, they told him some bollox about the turbo using the oil cos of the short town driving he was doin...

    eventually i couldn't be arsed to talk to the geeser any longer i was gettin more and more contempt for him he hadn't a fookin clue honestly about wot he had bought and why he had bought it other than the MPG it did...he's as thick as shit and deserves all he gets ...

    You should have had some fun with him if he was a real knob and told him the probable repair costs that may be involve in fixing his motor.

    Then again it has been said that I'm an evil b1stard!
