New Bettle Sport Diesel ENGINE HOT!!

Recommended Posts

Bit of Help guys,

My folks have recently bought a new Beetle Sport (150bhp Diesel eco engine).

After a journey of any length long or short the bonnet and front wings are absolutely roasting and the fans run for a while after switching off, i'm talking hot!! Can't put your hand on them hot and there's a pretty strong burning smell.  There's about 1500miles on the car.

Edwin May are saying this is normal and its to do with the particulate filter needing cooled??  This kind of heat cant be doing the paint any good either.

Anyone experiencing this with any cars with the same engine?
