hi

i am looking at buying a audi 100 1994 2.5 tdi

it has 6 gears well the 6th gear is marked E,what i was wondering is are only the 130 or 140 bhp ones 6 speed?

from what i read the 115bhp ones are 5 speed and the 6 speed is 130 or 140 bhp. is that correct?

you have pretty much answered your own question.
Not sure where you got 130bhp from, I only new they came as 115 or 140bhp.
Not sure the 100 got the 140bhp I would think that was only available in the A6. Again I stand to be corrected.
Im sure you could get the 100 with 6 speed but as you have stated it was labelled as an E for economy

I believe my dad's 100 was 115bhp, definately a 6 speed. My understanding was the rebadging to "A6" included a power increase to 130/140bhp region

a6s came is 115 and 140,the 140s were usually 6 speed but there are a few 5 speeds around

I understand the top gear in either box is the same though

great cars though whichever you go for

I was under the assumption that the six speed was geared taller in 6th for lower revs on the motorway..?

Nice thought, but Bladerunner (RIP) told me my quattro's 6th gear was lower than the 5th gear on a standard one.

Doesn't make much sense to me - with this much torque, why would you need a close ratio box and a low top gear?

I know on a S2 the 5th gear is taller than the 6th on a 6 speed. Its essentially the same gearbox on a A6/S6!!!!
Like you say a bit strange

I think it was gib who mentioned to me that his 5 (present) and 6 speed (deceased) sit at same revs on the motorway

Bit of a brain freeze when I thought they were the same. No power increases boost comes in at 1900 instead of 2100. I have the tech sheets some where on this.
