Two. The cayenne and the A8L. Unfortunately or fortunately. The only TDI I have now is a Q5 that still runs great, 20k miles after the emission repair. No problem there. It's got 113k miles on the odometer and I hope I can run it to at least 200k miles.

I am toying with the idea of tracking my buybacks down and buy back one of them. The reason is that the dealerships really did a lot of things on them and they should be problem proof for a while. On the A8L, the Audi dealership replaced the HPFP/LPHP/DPF/fuel meter sensor/the whole fuel lines/Fuel tank/windshield, repaired the leaks, did the alignment job. The real culprit for the problem could very well only be the fuel tank but the car got a whole set of new stuff. Some further work on the suspension, new tires and brake pads, the car will have a new life.

Audi/Porsche will most likely market them as a lemon. I already saw a couple of cars for sale as so. I had no idea if the cars will still be covered under the extended emission warranty.
