      The spread is usually the same though. If gas is $4 and diesel is $5, diesel will be much cheaper overall to run.

      Right now, diesel has been just a few ticks above rug...

      The new TDIs are getting close to 50mpg again. They re-designed the whole engine and emission system and made it more efficient in the process. You need to add exhaust fluid but it allows the engine...

      Nice, just make sure that to find the reason the bearings got wiped in the first place. Bearings usually do not go out for no reason. Either lack of oil pressure, old oil, or plugged oil galley can...

      Way too low. These motors like to rev for a diesel. Shift at no less that 3,000 to keep the turbo clean and everything happy.

      1Zs and AHUs came with SMFs from the factory. It wasn't until the ALH did VW switch to a DMF setup.

      Nope. A 5x8 trailer for a few hundred $$$ will do everything a pickup can do and its better because its lower to the ground which makes it easier to haul stuff on and off.

      Our F-350 just sits...

      You have to mark the wheels to make sure they go back in the same exact position otherwise the turbo will be out of balance. If you didn't do that, then it will need to be sent out and be VSR...

      IMHO the way I see it.

      Clarkson was the reason I stopped watching TGUK. I understand this is an entertainment show but some of the stuff he said really shouldn't have been aired. You have to draw...

      My 350K miles 99.5 TDI will 100% disagree with this post. Still as tight as it was new. Feels like a relatively newish car.

      I think VW age way better than most jap and american cars on the road....

      Looking boring is better than looking like turd which is what most "exciting" designs look like in around 5 years.

      Tail lights are a separate part of the switch. Only way to know if the ECU part is working is to check VCDS and go to measuring blocks.

      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...

      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...
