Disadvantages of the Audi BPP engine

  • The intake manifold flaps serve the least, they are often changed up to 100,000 km;
  • A lot of problems are thrown up by capricious piezo injectors of the CR Bosch EDC16 system;
  • A complex and very expensive timing chain may require replacement as early as 200,000 km;
  • The injection pump drive belt runs 100,000 km, but its breakage does without consequences;
  • On a run of over 250,000 km, the particulate filter or the EGR valve often clogs.
