    Yes AUQ pistons are forged Mahle. Here is a quote from Mahle themselves:


    Many thanks for your enquiry for MAHLE pistons.

    The standard production pistons used in the VAG AUQ engine manufactured by MAHLE are forged, not cast.

    Kind Regards

    Every 1.8T piston is forged.
    The 209 and 224hp engine have the better pistons rings and the lower compression.
