      Not necessarily, extremely likely yes but there are a few that have been able to last a long time and even power gains! They're like little miracles

      I HATE driving auto. Believe you me. I came from a 5 SPD VR6 and am not liking the auto. But I'll stick it through and save cash for the swap...

      I had no choice man. Don't worry. Hopefully I'd have enough cash saved up by the time my tranny blows up in my face and I'll just do it. 😄

      Good find man, car looks nice
      you're lucky you got an automatic, you get the 11mm fuel pump standard. I am jealous lol

      honestly though, if you're going to save up for a manual swap, save up for a six speed. thats just my opinion though.

      also, if you're looking for more TDI info, tdiclub.com is the best place to find anything related to them.

      anyway, welcome to the world of Mk4's and TDI's

      Thanks, yeah my dad just got a 2013 JSW TDI and he got pissed on the drive back when we both filled up... He couldn't and I could due to size.... LOl!!

      Definitely gonna save up for a six. Maybe hold off on the Malone tune for now since I'll need to upgrade the clutch, might as well do it when I'm down there...

      Yeah, I saw the tdiclub.com plate on the bumper, checked it out.

      Thanks for all the info man!! I've found that most TDI owners are really helpful and want to help.

      Thanks,
      -Scott.
