I called two local dealers, one said $2900 and the second said $1800.
A local VW shop quoted $1200 for labor plus parts.
I had no idea where those quotes stood amongst other people's experience.

Just had the dreaded call from my shop. 2007 Audi Q7, 96k miles.
Rough idle, lack of power, CEL, random ESP, EPC, Oil pressure warnings. CEL codes throw P0016 & P0017 Crankshaft position sensor.
Changed out the oil and full of metal filings. They suspect that it's this wonderful little bolt.
Has there been any luck with Audi or VW admitting some fault and helping with the cost of the repair?
I just bought a 3.6l Passat 06, now regretting it. My check engine light came on as I was taking it to the VW dealership to have a general look over on it since I just bought it. Its at 93k miles. Wasn't doing anything weird. Revved high for a minute or two, but that is it. Nothing ever shut off, smoked, leaked, grinded or anything. Do you think I'll be okay? I sold my Forester, all I have ever owned is Subaru, and never had a serious mechanical issue like this possible. Should I go ahead and make my noose?
Should I go ahead and crash into a wall? Bought the car used 93k, dogged it home for two hours, rode it an hour the next day, came to a stop light, and engine light came on. I immediately took it to the local VW dealership. Car never died or anything, and revved right below 1000rpms for a few mins and relaxed. Even if it is a engine bolt failure, do you think I caught it on time? I read everyone else pretty much rode with the light on for a some what extended amount of time, or it failed before anything known was happening. I am a new dad, in college, and crap pay. Do you think I could get VW to help me out at least if I stage a sit in, set myself on fire in the lobby, etc? Lol the last part was a joke. But does anyone think I have any chance at getting help if I showed them its a known issue and used the, "I've always heard VW was a good company, so I decided to get a car from them..."
