I talked with the local service manager, and they swear the TDI's use the same battery as their gas counterparts. The parts manager said the rating is for 360 CCA. A friend of mine just put a new battery in his 2003 jetta that was rated at 800 CCA.

360 sounds absurd to me for a diesel in Maine winters. Has anyone upgraded their battery? What should I look for when I replace this one?

The parts manager must have been quoting the DIN amperage rating. 360A DIN is equivalent to about 650 CCA SAE. Here's a conversion table with SAE, EN, and DIN ratings:
