      I can’t wait until Facebook groups kill Facebook groups cause they’re the worst.

      Honestly I'm not sure why people would want to use FB groups instead? Besides FB tracking your every move on and off their website.

      Ike and Eggroller haven't logged in since 2016/2017 - so, I'm posting here to say that I just recently got a Foxwell/Schwaben scan tool for OBDII VAG devices. I have absolutely no idea how to use it but happy to help clear codes/figure stuff out.

      I'm in SW PDX and can drive within reason, DM me if you need help.

      I ditched FB about 6 years ago, only picked up IG to kill times of boredom. Seems as though I miss out of a bunch of things like shows and events, nobody makes the event cards anymore and it's like a day or 2 before hand that I catch wind of something. I try to post event info in here when I can.

      And thanks for that. I ditched FB at about the same time, it's honestly a small price to pay. I miss my PNW peeps but not enough to wade into the kiddie pool of hate which is FB.

      Thoughts on buying a 2014 Passat TDI SEL Premium that has been sitting on a lot in MI for 2 years? We commute a lot and the MPG is great. I read the below article for some good tips, but like to hear from any locals that have bought one.

      I think they're great. There are a few common problems I see with them but the warranty extension makes them well worth buying. FYI, I've been told by customers the mpg and power goes down a bit after the emissions fix, so that is something to consider.

      I bought a 2012 Golf TDI just over a year ago and I've been loving it. It's definitely got some post-fix issues, but the warranty makes it worth it. 15k miles and it's already had a throttle body and clutch replaced, all under warranty. They don't have the mileage that they had before the fix, but you can tune/delete to get that back. I'm waiting until my CPO warranty is up before I start modding mine. So far my highest mileage for a tank was 580, mostly freeway but some in town driving.
