New to the Audi diesel but not diesels. I picked up a 2013 A3 TDI with 121K miles. The dealer I got it from has done the following:EGR Replaced,EGR Line Cleaned, EGR Filter replaced Alignment,New Tires and Oil Changed. 5W-30 Liquid Moly.

Wondering what oil and weight my fellow Texas are using. 5W-30 seems light for the heat we have. I run Rotella T6 5W-40 in my 06 Jeep Liberty CDR, and Rotella T6 15W-40 in all the other diesels.
What brand of antifreeze do you use. Since the Jeep engine is wet sleeve I have to run HOAT in it.
Who do you like for a tune?
Any other things I should know about the Audi diesel engine. With the learning curve of this car trying to avoid any surprise due to upgrades, maintenance tricks ect. Like with the Jeep first thing I had to do was the timing belt. Disable EGR and install a Provent.

you should worry about your HPFP especially about the miles you have, a catastrophic fail is over 35k in parts only if you get it done.
