The company assembled the 2.4-liter injection engine Audi BDV 2.4 V6 from 2001 to 2005 and installed only two, but very massive models of the concern of that time: A4 B6 and A6 C5. This power unit is essentially an environmentally improved analogue of the APS or ARJ motor.

Disadvantages of the Audi BDV engine
- The main complaints of car owners with this engine are related to oil and antifreeze leaks;
- It is worth at least once to overheat the engine well and modest leaks turn into streams;
- Hydraulic lifters and chain tensioners quickly fail from poor lubrication;
- The cause of unstable engine operation is usually a dirty throttle or idle valve;
- On long runs, the electrician often fails: sensors, ignition coils and lambdas.
