When i'm cruising on the motorway (not using cruise control though!), and the car's at about 2200-2600 rpm, ish, on a very light throttle.......

........the engine kind of stutters ever so slightly as I move the throttle again.

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just mine?

Not noticed this on the Mk5 GT TDi but yes on my Tdi 115 if you were cruising at a similar throttle position for a protracted length of time and then suddenly accelerate there would be a hesitation. I would not go as far as calling it a stutter.

almost as if it was having a doze on autopilot and got suddenly woken up[:eek:)]

I was speaking to a MK5 GT TDI 140 bhp owner last weekend at my local Audi dealer and he was part-exing his for an A3, precisely because of this problem irrating him so much. The car was a 2004 04 reg.

correct me if im wrong, but since this new engine has been introduced has it not been increased in power only slightly i.e from 136 bhp to 140 bhp or something like that, could it be that the problem lies with one variant and not the other....just a thought[?]

All the vag TDi's seem to do this, on the 150PD its at around 2200rpm.

Mine doesn't and neither does our passat.

Are we talking turbo lag more a less? Cause mine will take a second to kick in properly too but it doesn't feel like anything unusual?
