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.
