Question about the V10 in the Phaeton

688 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  duZt
Many people here seem to believe that they will sell this car here with the Diesel as an option. HOW?? They refuse to sell a TDI in the Passat because they think the 90HP is not matched will with the size of it. Also, they can't get anything other than a 90HP TDI over here because the fuel would destroy the injectors. Can someone please explain this to me?

Well, the V10 might not be offered in the US until 2006 (when we get low-sulfer Diesel).
If it does come sooner, it will come without Pumpe Düse, giving it ~250hp instead of 313hp, and then in 2006 it will recieve PD.

quote:[HR][/HR]huh? the V10TDi HAS PD!!!! and 313hp!!! where did you get the fact he would only get 250hp (vw would never do that; an engine with such low hp/l that is...)

we in europe already changed to sulfer-free diesel... so it's not a problem here...

and btw sulfer-diesel isn't bad for the PD, cuz we here already drove those engines before the low-sulfer-diesel was introduced...

I know that it has PD because it says so on the German Volkswagen website (http://www.vw-online.de/).
250hp is an estimate of what the engine would have if the PD was removed.
