      Received our buyback estimate and 11/1 turn in date.

      Looks like we can add another 5000 miles to it and still be at our buyback estimate, so I think we'll swap cars for a couple of months and...

      That one, I wouldn't due to the head issues they all seem to have at some point.

      Our CL is littered with those that are non-runners.

      Current RDX seems like a sensible choice.

      Q5 3.0T? Unless you need all of the sportiness that the SQ5 delivers, a 3.0T S-Line is a very nice option. The current Q5 is admittedly long in the tooth,...

      My dad's '12 Outback 3.6R has 80k on it. Nothing but regular maintenance.

      My '05 Forester XT did the same mileage with nothing but regular maintenance.

      Yes, the older engines eat HG's at...

      Crosstour is 4,105lbs in V6 AWD guise. From what used to be an engineering-obsessed company, this just offends me.


      It drives...fine. The suspension is better than a pre-refresh (<2014) Outback....

      Right?

      And looks fantastic, too.

      I can't wait for you to debut this at the ABFM (hopefully both PDX and Bellevue) in 2017, and watch people's reactions when you pop the hood.

      Dude, seriously?

      That's a complete motor, minus a couple of niggly details. You could probably start it and have it idle on the bench right now.

      And you've done a majority of the build...

      Ok. Perhaps testing a new one is in order...which requires going one state away unfortunately.

      But hey, unlike other VW's it attempts to inform the owner it needs DEF.

      We were both surprised--and not pleasantly--by the seeming lack of initial response. After driving the i3, I didn't expect a rocket ship, but thought it would be somewhat comparable to our TDI (199...
    12. Mk7 E-Golf: Need input from owners...(Mk6 TDI/Mk7 GTI owner asking)

      Hello E-Golf folk--

      We have both a Mk6 Golf TDI DSG and a Mk7 GTI PP DSG in our fleet (which replaced a Mk6 GTI 6MT). So I'm very familiar with both platforms.

      When VW announced the buyback, we...

      Amazon carries all kinds of 502.00 oils.

      I can even get the Joe Gibbs DT40 for the M96 via Amazon, shipped to me free. NBD.

      1. Agreed. Which makes them a great used buy compared to a 550i or Ewhatever.

      Dropped by the Audi dealer this weekend to test drive an A3 E-Tron as we begin the (long) hunt for the TDI replacement.
