When will they have those?
Also, if you have an 02 1.8T w/CVT can you chip it? Wont that be too much torque?

Re: Quattro + CVT = When? (DCS)

There's a reason why CVT doesn't mesh with AWD (yet) but I can't remember it. Also, CVT is only available with the 3.0 I think.

That's what I first thought but from what I've been reading here and there, I think you can get it w/1.8T.

Initially the 3.0 is available with the CVT, I would not modify that car in anyway as the tranny is rated to 220hp only. It could be 5 years until CVT is available with more hp or quattro.

Re: Quattro + CVT = When? (S4inSoFla)

Audi designed the CVT to be able to handle the power and torque of the 3.0 so chipping a 1.8T with the CVT shouldn't be much of an issue. Even though the thing could probably take a bit more torque without breaking, I too would be very cautious about tuning my 3.0 with CVT. Imagine the repair bill when they deny you warranty coverage for you fried CVT because of an aftermarket intake. I bet the parts alone would be $3000

And oh yeah, to address the actual point of this post: 2004 is number I've seen floated around in the press.

Transmission for $3000? Yeah, maybe a 5-speed. Auto trannies start at $5000, perhaps the CVT would be 6 or 7.

Re: Quattro + CVT = When? (what)

I'm not so sure the CVT would be more expensive than a automatic transmission. I remember reading somewhere that the engineers designed it with less moving parts than an automatic transmission. Also, they designed it without an expensive torque converter. The CVT might actually be less to repair than a regular automatic. I guess time will tell.

But in Audi's typical fashion, they usually overengineered the mechanical that has a larger margin before failing.
