      Manual says 133 ft/lbs, so that's what I used. FWIW, I think the procedure posted has more to do with evenly tightening the wheels in the air and less to do with the torque figure itself. Didn't work...

      No. I'll be happy to share who if they don't make things right, but gonna give them a chance.

      I took it in to the dealer this AM and they seemed receptive. The service rep took pictures of the...

      I've probably experienced this 5 or 6 times on my new '12 TDI LUX (3700 miles). Today, I went in for the 90 day courtesy check. I was hesitant to mention the shudder, intermittant as it is, but they...

      My listenership of HD is low primarily because IT ISN'T IN STEREO! :) I'm glad this can be fixed and thanks for doing the heavy lifting.

      Is this going to be a Service Bulletin or by request only?

      Thanks for the feedback. I guess it'll take some time to get used to the loooong throw. The thing I find disconcerting, and I'm struggling to explain, is that you don't always get the same amount of...

      Thanks for the reply. I'm liking the clean wheels though! Not sure how long the stopping distance is, but it really feels like you're hauling down 5000 lbs! Our Volvo XC90 has about the same...

      Just a couple quick questions;

      I'm taking my car in next week to have a couple of cosmetic items addressed (scratched window from inept removal of window sticker and some lockbox scratches). I was...

      Sorry you damaged your car, but it's hardly "lame". Lame would have been leaving the sill area with no protection from kicked up debris. The plastic is a lot more resilient than painted metal, which...

      The torque curve of the TDI matches the vehicle very well. 70mph cruising is at 1800rpm which is sedate as well as efficient. Rarely have to rev the engine much past 3000. Driving the limit at 30mpg+...

      Thanks for the info. I've only seen it in the manual. Maybe been superseded by a new upholder design.

      Absolutely for fit and finish and quality of materials. Mechanically, time will tell.

      I'm liking the change and have no sense of "buying down" with this vehicle.

      AMFastB7S4,

      I moved over from an A5. Test drove the Q5 3.2 extensively. Nice car as well, but I was not wowed in the same way as when I took the TDI out for the first time; bigger, heavier, nicer on the highway,...
