    1. I'm hoping they will sell them at a SUPER FAT...

      I'm hoping they will sell them at a SUPER FAT discount. I could be persuaded to trade in my 2013 Passat TDI SEL with 60k miles for a 2015 or 2016 similarly equipped if I can come out ahead. That...

      If I have my turn signal and someone lets me over without some form of acknowledgement, then NO.

      If someone flashes their lights signaling me to come over Yes.

      If I have to stick my arm out...
    3. Boy.... TCL pretty much hates offroaders, dont they?

      So in light of the TDI Buyback, I have been pondering what I should do with my passat...

      I love my Passat but if it is financially smarter I have no objections to letting Vw buy it back.

      What I've done in the past is close the latch around the bungee, then stretch the bungee hooks to each tie down point inside the trunk.

      I'm not sure that is a Passat.

      However, the ONLY passat that has the electromechanical parking brake is the B6 (2006 - 2011), which that car most certainly is not.

      That looks like it MIGHT be a...

      Hey HEY...

      The 2.0 was supercharged, and it was meth injected. And dammit, for a 2.0 AEG that thing really moved. And the sound of the supercharger still gives me chills.

      I'm bummed that I...

      Well, bad news and good news.

      The bad news is that they sold it yesterday. I asked our sales manager about an extended test drive to see if I liked it, and he said "You are about 30 mins too late,...

      Well, I work here. So I dont think I would have a problem.

      I would be interested in Schnell PM'ing me if it was my dealer he had a problem at though...

      I'm not talking about offroading as in crawling up mountain sides scraping the chassis or doing a Top Gear rainforsest excursion.

      But Yes, I would be OK with taking a $40k Jeep offroad.

      I am considering it for a few reasons....

      Other than the 98 Suburban I had for towing duties, all my driving life has been close to the ground. Honestly.... I'm getting kinda bored of it.

      I...
    11. THINKING about trading Passat for Jeep Wrangler

      So with the news of the Dieselgate settlement its looking like it may be financially smarter for me to take the buyback option.

      And for the first time in my life, I am considering a completely...

      So... Not only do you get to enjoy the milk cannons, you get a side of Coke too?

      That's what I am thinking? How far forward is their seat that their shin comes near the dash?

      I am 6'2" and have the seat almost all the way back and I have plenty of room to spare when I get in.

      So I was growing anxious to attempt a swap and I hate to say it may not be possible after all....

      I called Vw Techline and asked if they had access to a pin out diagram for the MIB II radio, and...

      Took this back when I first bought my Passat.

      Now I laugh about it given the circumstances.

      Oh it's not hard. It's actually kind of amusing. Fanboy? Well, I guess maybe I am. I was born and raised in a Vw Family, I have a Vw tattoo, and I work for the brand. So, yeah. You really nailed me...

      I heard it was something like "Until the bastard turns 18 or graduates from college (if still living at home)"

      Between this and the Chevy commercial showing a tool box punching a freaking hole in the aluminum bed, this has got to hurt some....
