DSL HED,
Thanks for the tip. I'll check out dieselcar.com.
You may not want to do this at work ("diesel divas" are not office-friendly).

How about not admitting you are obsessed, you just care about the maintenance of your vehicle, its mileage, and the equipment you elect to attach to it. equipment includes Maguire's Tech wax, a pela 6000, invisible glass, carwashes at a maximum of every 2 weeks and powerservice. I'm not obsessed, I swear....

Heathen! During the summer you have to wash the car at least twice weekly--it only takes 5-minutes to wash, 5 to quick detail. Then you need your once monthly wax with your power buffer, the quarterly shampoo of the carpets, etc... During the winter you can get away with washing once a week...but still that's not often enough.

You only drink Mountain Dew, because it foams and looks like diesel.

Mellow Yellow is a good substitute!

And the red kind ain't real Mountain Dew!

You intentionally park your Passat near some other German cars in the parking garage so it will have someone to talk to while you are gone

Better yet, parking your VW next to other VWs

i'm obsessed, really. but i only wash my car 2 or 3 times per year. in the winter i try to see how much salt/grime i can get to cover the car! the more the merrier! as for waxing, of course not. modern cars/clearcoats do not require waxing whatsoever. in my humble opinion!

You play reruns of Hogan's Heros in the garage for your TDI.

I tried that, but sometimes mine gets confused because it does not speak Spanish

Heathen? I don't get to drive much during the week, and it's parked under cover - ususally next to a gasser Golf, so it has company - I really only have to wash the dust off, armor all, wipe down the interior, vacuum, de-lint the seats rain-x, and wax(every 2 months). I do keep a box of TDI 'goodies' in the hatch - a winterizer for the fuel, powerservice (cetane boost), invisible glass, paper towels, rain-x polymer, rain-x window cleaner wipes (packet and container), maguires, 2 chamois, a bag of soft rags, a microfiber rag, torx set, socket set, emergency hammer, armor all, extra windshield wipers. And my nose mask (top only) comes off every time the car gets washed, and after it rains - so that it won't cloud the paint. I just need to get a vag-com and hook it up every time I drive....

lol...sorry to poke fun and ruffle your feathers a bit. With that list of equipment I would have to concede that you are doing better than I am when I am at school--it breaks my heart to leave all my detailing stuff at home...but college apartments lack resources for washing cars.
That said, I will call myself the heathen for being forced to use a self-carwash...oh well, at least I wash my car unlike everyone else around me.

I guess I am obcessed: I have had my Spice Red PD for 3 months, barely have 1300 mi on it and am on my 15th coat of Zaino not counting the other 15 times I waxed it with Auto Magic Carnauba.. I should also concede I used to own an auto detailing business before I became a corporate slave, LOL
