Hi guys,
Just a general question.My car feels sluggish in 3rd and 4th driving around town, can anyone tell me if this is normal with these cars, in 1st and 2nd gear car pulls quite well but nowhere near as good as my golf 1.8t , I believe the engines are the same?

check the engine and gearbox electronics, if there are no faults, check the turbo charger, if that is fine too, and there is no jerk, or up-normal gear shifting , everything is fine with your vehicle, after all you are comparing a golf to an Audi A4, same engine but a significant weight difference.
