      I've gone from a 2003 1.8T to a 2017 1.8T. For future reference, how do I determine its the engine code ID ?

      The engine code should be on top of the timing belt cover

      Completely different platform, generation, engine and everything else.

      Wrong forum.

      What do you think of the old 1.8t and the newer 1.8t? I'm just curious.

      I use to drive full-sized V8 automatic american cars until VW's in the 1990's. Aside from the need to replace the timing belt, I thought my 2003 1.8T 5.5 standard shift VW was a good performer for a 4 cylinder. It was reliable, handled very well and fun to drive, got comparatively great gas mileage and I did all the work on it including VW's common flaws: half-axles and computer module under the front driver's carpet that got corroded connections due to the darn moon roof drain problem. I loved it and drove it fir 16 years. (no rust) I also had a 2003 but auto tranny which was a good driver but not very peppy.

      My "new" 2017 1.8 with 55,000m is of course auto tranny but compared to the 2003 auto tranny I had is very responsive to throttle i.e. I never need to shift into the "S" sport gear which throws my head backwards (ha - as the gas gauge goes down). I enjoy its comparatively new clean and tight condition and performance. At age 82 it doesn't take much to please me.

      Because there's an entire subforum dedicated to that engine. And then broken down into what platform it came in.

      This is the 1995-2006 1.8t 20v engine. There's an FAQ, that has broken down information engine identification codes. Years, makes and models, etc.

      It's a 16 valve, not 20v
