This time I plan to do the T-Belt etc on the Jetta Wagon. I have the parts, I'll get some beer maybe pizza. I just need a cpl hands and some timing tools. Any takers? Also I can be here most days so whatever works best I can plan. Thanks again in advance!!! ha ha get it advance? (timing humor) I know it's retarded.... oh snap There I go again. OK I'm done.

Hey. Haven't met yet, I'm down the street in Bloomington. Happy to loan you my ALH tools. If timing works out (get it?), happy to lend a hand. PM me to line up a tool hand-off, if you want.

I was looking at the comparison of the blue motion tdi to an american 2.0 tdi, between VW of Germany and America's websites... This is what I came up with, thought some of you might find it amuzing:

100hp vs 140hp. Emissions differences?
I have to wonder why it won't come over here, could it be someones agenda against diesel?

VW dealership techs are having enough trouble trying to figure out how to work on a single TDI engine model (two actually, 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter). It is too much to expect them to learn about other 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-cylinder engines.

In fact, the dealer techs don't really understand gasoline engines either.

I can't blame the techs, I blame the dealers. Hire some skilled labor and we shouldn't have this issue. In my opinion, this isn't the issue, but definitely a problem if they do bring more over.

btw, I saw you on 694 last Friday. Still sporting the grill delete I see

Yes, my Golf is sufficiently distinctive that you can spot it going the opposite way on the freeway.

On the other hand, I see so many TDIs on the road every day, that I can't tell whether the driver is someone I might know.

Two weeks advance and I could make it on a Saturday. I can be the extra hands too. VCDS too...

Had some work done by the awesome Jeff Thealignmentguy
TT/R32 LCA bushings, 225/40 18 Nitto Neogens ($500 shipped and a $100 rebate on the way) on these dual drilled B5 RS4 reps. And an alignment. Finally.

The wheels need cleaning and refinishing (mad curb rash), but I needed new tires something awful and wasn't going to put new ones on those ugly Montereys.

Also, these Nitto Neogens ride nicer and quieter than the 195/65 Firestone FR380 i was burning up that were on it when I bought it. We'll see if it stays that way.

I just got my spare head in the mail, and my upgraded Techtonics Tuning spring kit and it turns out the head had a set installed! If no local wants it, I'll see if I can send it back. I'll eat the shipping costs on it.
