      Things to consider - maintenance on the Passat with 40k on it should consist of normal items. Nothing crazy. Pay it and be done for awhile while keeping the car with good fuel economy. This is...

      He's on medical leave at the moment so he doesn't have access to the parts info.

      I have a 13.5 GLI. At some point the plastic cover piece on the back side of the intake attaches to the grill has fallen off. I don't expect that vw would warranty it so in case they don't I'm hoping...
