      As a city dweller, I had to do the math, but my TDI nudges this out for my area due to 20 cents per kwh. (And obviously, my $7k dieselgate is cheaper out the door) Still though, these new hybrids are...

      Kind of curious what you're hoping to get out of the Mini. They're not super fast, reliable, or fuel efficient. They are "good enough" at a lot of things, but you already have a Saab and GTI if your...

      I got mine 13 months ago, almost to the day. My buddy got one four months ago? 2012 TDI, same thing, warranty began on purchase date. I have the print-out from the dealer I bought it from and the...
    5. High oil temp, regular coolant temp, oil light on... 2.7T swap?

      My buddy got a beater 2.8 Audi A4 quattro 5sp.

      He had an engine knock, put some oil in it, and it went away. It came back the next day, louder than it was, the oil temp got high, while the coolant...

      My 2011 had the mods done the day I bought it. The dealership specifically waited to bench flash it until I was filling out paperwork. VW of Duluth, MN, not sure about others.

      Unless there's clarification I missed, he seemed to be speaking about all of the dieselgate TDIs, not just the Touareg. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how I saw it. I don't know anything about...

      You say that like it's a bad thing. I'd rather a Chevy 3.8 than a Dodge :confused:

      I'd be a bit worried long term about a Honda CVT if it was purchased instead of leased and leasing is very rarely a great decision from a purely monetary standpoint.

      Have you considered a "dieselgate" TDI? Cheap to drive, warranty, wagon options, ect. It would be a better interior, no AppleCar, but at least Bluetooth. I got mine for $8k out the door, though it...

      I mean... I bought a 2.8 V6 Passat with 232k, put 8k on it and only had to do what repairs it needed when I first got it. Spent $500 on it and drove it until 242k, then sold it. My buddy just bought...

      If there was a manual Arteon, I'd get one. Since we're stuck with only an 8 speed non dual clutch in the US, I'd go with the Kia or Alfa. I test drove an Arteon, it pulls, but you're going down four...

      This DIY is probably what I'll follow. I have an '08 so I have a couple tubes from the inlet hose and a MAF I need to have all connected.

      Making Monster Mat logo white again?

      Picked up a MKV Rabbit Monster Mat for the GF's VW. I got it cleaned up with bleach, but the Rabbit logo is still a bit brown. I was wondering if there's a good way to get it white and spiffy again.

      Also, I will be needing a CAI with support for the MAF. The Carbonio is one of the few that works with a MAF, especially among options I'm actually able to find.
