The German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) has approved software updates for affected 2.0l TDI engines in the European Union (EU) and other parts of the world outside the USA and Canada.
In New Zealand every Audi vehicle is manufactured to EU emission specifications, so the New Zealand market is covered by the approvals.
The KBA has confirmed that the software update does not change fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, engine power output, engine torque or noise emissions in the relevant test cycles. Since the start of the year the international roll out is well underway.
Owners of affected vehicles in New Zealand will be contacted as soon as their Audi is ready to be updated. The software update will take approximately one hour to complete. It will be free of charge at an authorised Audi Dealership.
