Cd of the car is listed as 0.33 for the 2006 year and 0.31 for the 2014.

I know those are not the same as the one I have. I think it might be safe to assume that 0.32 is what I have.

Well, i have had the car for almost a year now.

It is a nice car. We have done 30,389 km today. Car has 218,778 km on it.

Average consumption 5.81 l/100 km.

I made a cardboard and black duct tape upper grille block on it and the last tank is 5.47 l/100 km compared to 6.13 the previous tank.

But one cannot draw any conclusions from that. I live in a city with a population close to 20M. Leave at 6 am and it is a 17 minute drive to work with average of 4.7 liters/100km. Leave at 7 and it is an hour and a half with an average over 6.5.

I use Spritmonitor.de but have not been able to integrate it to the sig.

A fellow member even gave me instructions but i could not find the button.

My fuel consumption is probably well above EPA or factory specs.

Quick update:

The DSG (dual shift gearbox) on the car went out a couple of days ago. I lost reverse and 2,4,6 th gears.

Previously the AC went, needed new compressor and radiator.


Current stats:

37.472 km (by me)
Total: 2,201 liters of diesel
Average consumption 5.88

With the other expenses. (Oil changes tires tax insurance and repairs) fuel accounts for %36 of the vehicles cost.


I paid close to 2k USD for the transmission, the largest expense.

The mechanic said that it would approx last 70k km.


I like the FE of this car (not great compared to you guys, but my driving consitions are not good). However economically not the best choice.

That's too bad, but in-line with my pre-conceived notions. Perhaps a good candidate for a swap? I wonder how feasible it would be to put a manual in.
