      I agree with most of your points although VW already has a 12 year transferable unlimited mileage rust warranty. For a while they were changing fenders on 10+ year old MK4s because they put foam...

      Not impressed with the about of rippling that happen, especially the broke tail light.

      I think option 3 is probably the better of them if they have the same motor although without seeing pics of the damage of the corolla its hard to say for sure. Rear quarter damage is a PITA to fix...

      Honestly, the best thing VW can do is improve their abysmal dealership network. It really does astound me how bad the VW dealerships really are and especially the service departments. VW also needs...

      Pshh..all of you with baby VWs...pretty soon I won't have a VW in the driveway under 200K.

      By far the best thing I learned is, do not go to the dealer for service work, ever. VW dealers are just...

      I hate selling electronics on ebay....last thing I sold was a old 4th gen ipod touch. Like two weeks after it was delivered to the winning bidder guy emails me complaining the battery is not holding...

      Ok here's an opinion coming from someone who has owned several TDIs and keeps up with the current generations.

      The ALH series were by far the most bulletproof TDIs made. They did have their...

      Cylinder bore wear/oil consumption would be a concern for me. Look for blue smoke when idling around and accelerating. The bores tend to egg out after high miles depending how it was treated in its...

      I get more oil out of my TDI when I extract because I also suck out the oil filter and cooler which can hold up to half a quart.

      I already told you what to do in the post you just quoted. Actually one of the first things you should do is to catch on in maintenance, do the timing belt, check the camshaft for wear, check the...

      I think MK4s make awesome beater/commuter cars because they are really rust resistant, comfortable, fun enough to drive to keep things interesting, and parts are everywhere now. A2.slo and a manual...

      What I am saying is if both cars are TDI, why not use the 02 TDI harness that's in the car now? Then you don't have to swap anything other than the engine.

      No way you are getting 400HP out of an 8V PD, at least not something you would want to drive on the street.

      There's a big difference between tuning/removing a DPF and transplanting the electronics and engine into another car. Ask malone if he does a standalone ECU for the CBEA/CJAA. The answer will likely...

      Uncharted waters. Biggest problem is there is no standalone ECU setup for them and the OE ECU is very complex and hard to remap. They are also complex engines with lots of crap on them.

      As for as...

      If both are TDI then just use the harness that's in the car now, am I missing something here?

      Looks like every exhaust valve got hit. This happens when the timing belt starts slipping and the valves start tapping pistons. One valve had enough and dropped free.

      Depends if its actually an 01 or 02 car. 02 is when they went with immo3 system and did some wiring changes. If the cluster had open door light=immo3 if it has a trunk light = immo2 00 was all immo2....
